SE SOTD, Wed, Jan 26th, 2022

Razor: Oneblade core- Mfg 2017> excellent mild razor, great design, Feather FHS-10 blades it uses have no longevity so I use 2 de-splined Gem blades. I just grind 1 spent one on the cutting edge and stack the new Gem blade on top and place together in the core and works well. There is enough resistance to hold the blade and makes the shave a touch better for efficentcy IMO.
Great razor to use shaving the back of my neck after each hair cut clipping.
Blade: excellent blade, very sharp, great longevity, smooths out nicely + predictable. Best cost per/shave for SE blades IMO.
Soap: Ogallala Bayrum with Sandal wood, great soap, great lather qualities. I Enjoy the scent of Bayrum with sandalwood.
Brush: Yaqi 24mm Mysterious galaxy silvertip badger, excellent lather generator, heavenly pillow like soft tips, great scrub + excellent lather painter.
Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of Aloe Vera gel on the cleaned beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups.
Post shave: Witch hazel cleanse + Ogallala Bayrum with sandalwood (some clove) + dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion.
Results: CCS, DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = :a17:excellent shave with my Oneblade Core with a de-splined Gem.

Wednesday SOTD- two passes to get to DFS, a relaxing, easy shave today:

Pre-shave: shower
Razors: Maxwell June twinned DE
Blade: Treet New Edge (1)- seemed to be quite smooth, if not especially sharp; I'm enjoying testing these Treet blades
Brush: Rein Dachs Klassik 20mm badger- break in continues with great face lather today
Soap: Canada Shave Soap- just keeps delivering fine lather and excellent shaves
Post-shave: cold rinse, then Floid Black AS and some Cereve as the dryness here continues

Rating....DFS+ 9.8

Closest Shave with the 1.25 yet. Three passes wtg, xtg, atg. Used the Gillette Common Bar handle again. The shave was pretty effortless. Definitely better than the solid WRH2 I sent via BST today to it's new owner with the rest of my 1.15. I chose the right gap I think. The 1.15 could not quite achieve today's shave. My mustache and soul patch area area closer than they have ever been. I was never satisfied with this area around my mouth with another razor. That is probably mostly technique, but, the razor does make some difference. I don't know how I would get on with higher gaps, but, the 1.25 is keeper.
RAZOR: Gillette Aristocrat

Soap: Captain's Choice Nor'easter

Living in the SC Lowcountry I pay little attention to the weather unless it is hurricane season. When I learned today that my neighbors to the north are bracing for a Nor'easter, the elements of this shave were established in my mind.
