Well, the birthday is in July, but in some ways I feel like my life started in earnest when I met and married my wife. So, our anniversary feels a little like a birthday .And his anniversary?! Whoa!
Happy Anniversary, @mgweatherly and many more.Modern May shave #14 (rated 9.8/10) using:
View attachment 1661173The amazing Super Silver blade mellowed as it is on its 15th shave seemed the perfect match for the FOCS, which I had only used once before. My first use of the FOCS scared me a little if I'm honest. Under my nose is the scariest part because the FOCS feels like it exposes more blade at the corners, which is the part of the blade I use to get the whiskers close to my nostrils. This morning, I took extra care and got a very smooth and close shave in two passes WTG/ATG with minor touch ups.
- Razor: Gold Fatip Lo Storto OC
- Blade: 1967 L3 English Gillette Super Silver (15)
- Brush: Semogue Owner’s Club Mistura Taj (my favorite)
- Pre-shave: Noxzema
- Soap: Arko baby! (excellent)
- Post shave: Thayer's Witch Hazel followed by Old Spice Swagger splash (my wife’s favorite)
My wife really likes the Old Spice Swagger scent, so I pulled it this morning for our wedding anniversary .
