    Razor: Timeless Titanium
    Blade: Astra SP x4
    Soap: 1/2 face D.R. Harris Windsor, 1/2 Arko
    Bowl: Captians Choice
    Post: Thayers unscented WH.

    Take aways: smoother shave with the Windsor, like the citrusy scent of the Arko. Both soaps were new to me.​

  5. Monday SOTD

    Razor: Rockwell Gunmetal Model-T
    Blade: Super Iridium(D3)
    Brush: Muhle V2 Travel Brush
    Bowl: Collapsible Travel 5"
    Pre-Shave Scrub: MRGO Lime
    Pre-Shave Balm: Grooming Dept Patchouli & Mint
    Shave Cream: Irisch Moos
    Post: Monster Block Alum
    Aftershave: Irisch Moos

    Second day using the Rockwell Gunmetal finish Model-T adjustable razor and have to say, that after waiting almost 3 years for this thing to arrive on my doorstep and expecting a letdown, the shock is on me. Still a long way to go with trying different blades but when paired with the Super Iridium, a no touchup 2 pass shave. The finish is perfect gunmetal mirror finish, has a nice weight to it, smooth adjustment range and I like the fact I am not locked into settings like the Fatboy. I set mine at 2.7-2.8 range (max is 6) and at this setting it was like shaving with a Feather AS-D2 but the Model-T shave closer, and like the AS-D2 I could speed shave at this setting without fear of cutting myself. 2 passes, no touchup required and shave was so smooth and close that I didn't feel whiskers on my face again until 7-8 later when time for dinner and I really didn't need to shave again this morning. I was impressed with the Rockwell 6S four years ago and even more impressed with this Model-T. Patience surely paid off this time for me and at the kickstarter intro price of $79 it is a steal. Came with a nice box for storage, similar to the Feather razors, 100 Rockwell blades and a leather DE razor cover.

    Scent: L'artisan Parfumeur Fou d'Absinthe

    I love the Mystic Water scents, and when I dial in the lather, it stands up to the best premium soaps in my den. I am never quite sure if I've got the lather right; it forms differently from any of my other soaps.
    Tonight was spot on. Even the against the grain pass was effortless - a beautiful shave!
