Notes:

Very effective shave with the Karve today. The blade performed at sub par levels leaving lots of weepers along the way during ATG. I will give it one last change.

Extended shave notes can be found here.

Enjoy your shave today!

Talking about temptations... I've no spare time left to get distracted... that's my only pro of an overly excessive work load these days.

But I'm still shaving. And I really do not need anything.

Cheers Comrades!
