SOTD:
I apologise for not posting any shave of the day posts over the last two weeks, college was hectic because of test week, but all my shaves over the last few weeks have either been with bundubeard Coffee, col conk lime, or arko.

At the beginning of the month i switched out my uk made super speed for my Wilkinson sword tto long handle, what a fantastic razor! All my shaves were also with the same feather blade now on its 32nd shave.

Because ive decided against doing no shave November this year, ive decided to make this my budget shave month where ill be using blades as long as i possibly can, and only my cheapest soaps and a single razor.

Usually I load my brushes for 20 seconds with most soaps but i need to load for 30 with the col conk lime since its a smaller puck, so less is in contact with the brush.

Shave 1:
Razor: Wilkinson sword classic tto long handle
Blade: feather hi-stainless (31)
Brush: Omega 49
Soap: arko shave stick
Aftershave balm: prep


Shave 2:

Razor: Wilkinson sword classic tto long handle
Blade: feather hi-stainless (32)
Brush: Wilkinson sword classic
Soap: col conk lime
Aftershave balm: prep

Broke out my Gem Micromatic Clogpruf this morning. It delivered a decent face shave. Did not use it for my daily dome shave. Rake style razors and the back of my head don’t tend to do so well. My Vector delivered its usual effortless, BBS noggin scrape.

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.
