Sunday SOTD- two passes DFS+, a fresh Treet Dura Sharp resulted in an excellent shave:

Pre-shave: a nice relaxing shower and some soap bloom water
Razors: Maxwell June twinned DE
Blade: Treet Dura Sharp (1) these blades seem to be amongst the best of the Treet carbons; the first strokes were a bit rough but smoothed out quickly
Brush: Rein Dachs Klassik 20mm badger
Soap: MWF- this puck really cured over time and shrunk, but the shave ended up very good; I did have some dissipating lather at first, but more load and a little more water did the trick
Post-shave: cold rinse, did an alum rub today and felt it some, then some Weleda ASB, face is now feeling great

Before all the recent artisan offerings, the Fat gave amongst the best post-shaves for me; it's fun to be using it again despite the fact that it's trickier to lather.

Enjoy and stay safe all!

Have some great shaves!
 
Hey Steve
What’s your take on that copper bowl? It looks awesome and I’m seriously considering purchasing one . Is it the larger bowl?
Sorry for the late reply. The bowl is the Obsidian version. It is the heavier copper but I am not aware of size differences. Honestly, I have been using a scuttle almost exclusively for the last few years and love it. This bowl is better. I received it for Christmas and have used it almost every day since. The surface is just rough enough to build a great lather and the Captain's Choice symbol is a great place to put your thumb and grab the bowl. The copper heats up nice and it is just a pleasure to use. I highly recommend it.

Thank you Steve! I purchased the standard size and it arrived on Thursday! I finally found my Forever home bowl!
