Recovery shave tonight after last night’s burn-fest. Two easy N-S passes, no worries.
Tonight's shave

C-MON HF 5/8" an amazing razor. And it has a round point which I prefer. I dont have many round tip razors which sucks but I dont think I have even seen a Japanese Razor with a round point.

Razor Emporium 3 1/2" English Bridle strop. I got it cheap and wanted a Bridle strop. This thing has a heavy draw. It's almost like if you were trying to stop on a glue trap. Are most Bridle strops a heavy draw?

Cottonwood Burl handle from TheKnotheadWoodshop on Etsy. 24mm TGN silvertip knot. Tim is a great guy. Very helpful and friendly. He is a new Artisan. This handle feels great and is a stunning handle.

Black Ship Grooming Captain's Pipe soap and aftershave. I love this scent, it's a strong tobacco scent. It is not a sweet tobacco scent which I enjoy at times. It's a nice chance of pace from all of the sweet tobacco scents. It has a a cherry undertone that is very faint.
