Sunday, 11/1:


Razor - Raw Shaving RS-10, aggressive
Blade - Gillette Nacet
Brush - Mojo Handcrafts "Halloween 2020" 26mm 2-band
Soap - Grooming Dept Mallard
A/S - Supply Arenella Coast

Another absolutely terrific 10/10 shave! The brush with its Maggard standard 2-band is just doing it for me. This knot is just so good. Got a really great lather with an excellent sandalwood-dominant scent, that gave me fantastic glide and protection. The aggressive plate is very smooth but still can bite you, and I think the combination of the lather and the Nacet kept my face in perfect condition. That's three different razors now, and the Nacet has been brilliant in all of them. I think I've found a new blade to include among my favorites. The shave was so close and my face feels perfect.

Pre-shave:- RazoRock Charcoal Lime PreShave Soap
Bowl/Scuttle:- Roger Quintero 3D Printed

Soap/Cream:- Stirling Spice
Razor/Blade:- Shick Adjustable Injector (M1)/Schick (4 & 5)
Post:- RazoRock Ultimate Alum / Thayers Cucumber WH / Stirling Spice Balm
After-shave:- Vintage Old Spice 1977 Jubilee

I ended up using the same setup this weekend, I really am enjoying the injector razor and you can't go wrong with that classic Old Spice scent. So far I'm not noticing any difference in sharpness or smoothness on the Schick blade with 5 shaves on it, I think we have a winner here.​
