SOTD "FREE WEEK" July 6th - July 12th, 2020



Great shave this morning! Really starting to get the hang of this straight shaving thing. Finished a two pass (WTG, ATG) that actually required no safety razor clean up, and resulted in a DFS++. Grabbed my trusty VC1 and completed my usual two pass (WTG, ATG) VBBS dome shave. I feel refreshed, cool, clean and velveteen!
