OCtober 2020

SOTD: Friday October 16, 2020 (OCtober 7th)
Razor: Hawk V3OC
Blade: Kai Pink (3)
Brush: Wilkinson Sword Boar
Soap: OH Puck!


Today was a day to accumulate some new nicks. I hit gold and got about six. None that needed attention from the styptic but aggravating nonetheless. The problem seems to be that the teeth on this razor are farther apart, so it's more likely to straddle a bump than to ride over it. Great little tool for cleaning up skin tags, shaving bumps and old scars, I'll say that.

The same lathering technique as last time once again yielded a bowl of nice lather, enough for the full performance including the Wagnerian elements. [grin] I've realized that this is never going to be a daily driver for me. I picked up the V3SB and OC when they first came out, as a means of keeping interest up during the early days of the pandemic. I've come to think I'll let someone else have the SB, but I will keep the OC in spite of its ways as a nice razor to use maybe once a week or so when I feel like a little danger.

Looking forward to next week with the S2.

PAA nickel DOC v Yaqi SLOC / Bic Cr Pt (2)

Self-made Williams stick, Ever-Ready brush with vintage banded boar knot, last splash of summer badger blend - 3 parts Aqua Velva, one part Osage Rub.

A couple of fine little razors, even if not in the first rank. Simple 10 minute shave, one pass, feels good to be cleaned up.

Fantastic lather from soap and brush combo. Creamy and slick with nice scent.
Shave with razor paired with the blade was good & efficient. Smooth and comfortable but a tad less than London Bridge blade. 3passes for bbs result but somehow some minor weepers. Excellent post & aftershave. Rating 9/10
