Thought I'd try a hand lather today. Wow. I think it was some of the best lather I've ever produced.

The results were equally excellent, BBS in 4-passes WTG, XTG, XTG(opposite), ATG. Shaves like this make me happy.

Monday’s Shave

Today I used my Timeless SS SB .68 razor that was loaded with a Personna Lab blade for the fourth shave. I really like this razor and blade combination. The soap is Haslinger Coconut, tallow formula. The brush is a Kent BK 8 Silvertip. I did my usual four-pass shave on my face and two-pass on my head. The aftershave was Thayers Rose Petal WH and Neutrogena Triple Protect ASB. The fragrance was Jimmy Choo Man Intense.
