|Notes to today’s shave:|
I intended to shave with the Gillette and my Timeless, but stubble was on the milder side and therefore I only used the Tech. Going with a Bolzano on its 8th run it was a very smooth shave with no hassles and all dazzles. Smooth, comfortable and the Bolzano not showing any signs of fatigue. BBS level was achieved relatively easy, although I have the feeling the longevity of the BBS will be less than with my other blades / razors. The Tech is a versatile and nimble razor that is about as good as razors get - also bearing in mind the age of this razor.
The Razorock brush is my favorite currently and it lathers exuberantly well. Nice slickness and glide and of course the soap being Proraso Green with a menthol kick between passes. Wonderfully soft and yet with enough backbone for me. Really a great brush.
Floïd's stang at first and provided that nice and warm sensation in combination with a barbershop scent.
Excellent start of the day I would say!
OK. One more day to go and I will have successfully completed my second GRUME (what?! - yes, I have completed one before in June. From there on it was downhill with small single purchases). For those that are still in: keep at it!! For those already out: I can fully relate and there is always next month's GRUME. I liked reading about and seeing the photos of your purchases every post of the way. You are all my GRUME peeps: Greatest Razor Union Mob par Excellence!!
