For those keeping track of my blade usage numbers, this does indeed mean that I didn't shave over the weekend. Sleeping late, coffee with a friend, chopping and stacking rough-cut wood, a motorcycle ride around Napa's countryside, a lovely promenade down our little town's main street with SWMBO and our three dogs...all of this conspired to keep me busy, and shower just didn't seem like a good use of time.

This morning's shave was a lovely two-pass affair. As usual, the mixture of Stirling and Omega have a quick, dense and slick lather with little effort, helped along by the synthetic. The result was DFS, which is plenty good for me.

And for those tracking my blade usage: there's got to be something better you could be doing! :p
