SOTD, 2 December 2019

After a four-day shaving hiatus, my Monday Morning shave was an excellent test for my relatively newly purchased Fine Accoutrements Marvel razor's efficiency. I nearly could have been office-presentable after the first pass, remarkably, especially considering the Nacet blade in the razor was on its fourth shave (but I did a full three passes today). What a great pairing these were today - and lest I forget to mention it, Stirling Texas on Fire was my soap and aftershave of choice. Still intrigued by this unique scent - and wowed by the excellent performance of both products. My BBS face thanks the great folks at Stirling!

In keeping with my pledge for Decadent December, this morning I broke out the Eclipse Red Ring, originally manufactured in Sheffield, England, which is a mid-aggressive shaver with a very narrow sweet spot. I was happy with the shave, but because of joint issues, needed to use my Jones Shake Sharp to finish the back of the dome. Nevertheless, a wholly enjoyable DFS. I feel smooth, clean and ready for the snow today!
