|Notes to today’s shave:|
Had some issues and challenges to attend to, so I did not post yesterday. The shave was ok and could have been better. This blade is working, but I retired it because the shave felt harsh and I incurred a number of neck weepers and irritation. That is a no in my book for a next run. Everything else performed beautifully.
In terms of technique, the Gillette Slides saved the shave, because I could use the slide to temper the harshness quite a bit. I have seen other gents take the Black to double digits, but maybe this is not the blade for me in that department - because the first couple of shaves were excellent.
Finishing October's GRUME with 30/31 - after the Tabac no personal shaving acquisitions. I did buy stuff for other brothers, but that's it. Many itches and urges - all overcome. Congrats to all who made it through. See you on the other side for November!
