Thursday NOvember 7

No Repeat (mostly) NOvember. Up today is a Gillette Fatboy Red Dot D1.

Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
Soap - Stirling Executive Man
Brush - Jayaruh 327
Blade - Gillette Platinum (2)
Razor - Gillette Fatboy Red Dot D1
Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Stirling Executive Man A/S, EdT

Shave rating 5 of 5

I did a two pass shave today, first pass on 9. I'm not used to using a Fatboy but I noticed audible feedback during the first pass - the razor/blade was singing to me. I don't remember this happening on my regular Fatboy. Anyway, the first pass, WTG, was excellent. I turned the dial down to 5 for the second pass, XTG, but this time no singing razor. The second pass was excellent as well, finishing BBS. The Executive Man soap provided very good lather though I had to watch how much water I added to prevent the lather from getting too watery. The alum was a little vocal again on one side of my neck but that was it. Finished up with the Executive Man A/S and then the EdT.

Happy NOvember and great shaves everyone.
