Razor - Raw Shaving RS-10, aggressive

Very nice shave; went a little crazy with pickups at the end which caused a few weepers, but still really nice. The blade has really performed nicely through two shaves with two different razors. Seems like a pretty decent blade. The aggressive plate was again crazy smooth and plowed through a lovely lather. Digging on this scent for the entire shave, holy cow is it a great one. Just a really good Sunday shave.

Tuesday, 7/28:


Razor - Mergress
Blade - Astra SP
Brush - Wolf Whiskers Kaylee 24mm Maggard SHD 2-band fan
Soap - Catie's Bubbles Cool & Fresh
A/S - Stirling Eucalyptus Mint

I literally looked in the mirror after I finished and said "wow!" 10/10. SO refreshing! I got a wonderful lather from the soap, and the scent was just what the doctor ordered. Really digging on these cool, fresh scents right now. The knot in this brush is unbelievable. I think these Maggard knots stand with just about anything. SO soft, what a face feel. I started with the razor on 3.25 for the first pass, and with the Astra it was just so smooth and pleasant. Dialed down to 2.5 for the second, and that was all she wrote, done and dusted. Just a marvelous shave, what a great razor.
Kicking off a week of vacation shave.

Paladin 28mm lotus brush in purple haze. Gillette slim on “8” with a fresh 7 o’clock blue blade. I’m really getting into the slim. To be honest if I only had that razor to use I’d be ok with it. Well, not really. But it is a great shaver.

have a good weekend folks.
