May 2024 Gentlemanly Restraint Until Month End (GRUME)

Day 31, 100% complete

Preshave: Hot washcloth
Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat (Tallow)
Brush: Yaqi 24mm synthetic cashmere
Razor: GC.84 SB, Ti Handle, Astra SP #10
Bowl: Turkish copper
Post-shave: Nivea Balm

Switched back to my favourite handle, the titanium 85mm. As I expected, the blade was still fit to finish the month, with an easy near-BBS.

Congratulations if you made it this far. I hope to see some of you over in the June GRUME.
Enjoyed my first GRUME with you all!

Parker Variant
Treet 7 Days
Simpson's Chubby 1 (best)
TOBS Jermyn Street
Proraso green balm

What a difference a blade makes! The Treet pairs much better for me than the Shark in this razor. And, Jermyn Street has always been a favorite.


Still in!

It was a late Friday night shave tonight so adult beverages were involved 😆. I managed a nick free shave!

I'll be skipping June GRUME because even though I will not buy anything shaving related, I will be hinting hard for my children to buy me shaving related items 😆!

Edited to add: Congrats to all!
