One of those shaves that converts shaving into a hobby. All from the hand of soap maker of Frankincense. This will no doubt be my Sunday go to combination.

Today with a bit of time in hand, a delightful bowl lather using my bowl from Japantown San Francisco. The soap has created a sublime lather: silky, creamy, super slick and very cushiony and protective.

Have some great shaves!
The Col Conk Bay Rum was my first shave soap when I started traditional wet shaving. Used it for a year before I found the shave forums... Still one of my favorite soap scents.

Yes Andrew it is a reasonable soap and the scent is mild and protection is good. I find it easy to lather and at a reasonable price so there is a lot going for this affordable soap.
You do not see Colonel Conk displayed very often on the forums, I guess people like the latest greatest soap and there is nothing wrong with that.
Have some great shaves!

I should have skipped today and almost did, but, I wanted to try the new to me Gillette. I wasn't impressed at least with this blade combo. No nicks, but, irritation.

Saturday NOvember 2

First shave of the month. Doing a NO repeat NOvember for razors but not for brushes or software as I don't have enough. I can do about 20 no repeat days for brushes, and about 10 no repeat days for soap so I will do my best but will have to start repeating some.

First up is my favorite razor; an Iwasaki Tamahagane.

Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
Soap - Le Pere Lucien
Brush - Paladin Vesuvius
Blade - N/A
Razor - Iwasaki Tamahagane
Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, Floid SE

Shave rating 5 of 5

I haven't shaved with a straight for a while, since spring, but shaving with a straight is like riding a bicycle, right?? The steel on this razor is just awesome and produces an extremely sharp and smooth edge. The razor is very unassuming looking but definitely not one to overlook. Did a 2 pass shave; first pass WTG was DFS+. Decided to do a 2nd pass XTG and but was very careful, especially around my mouth and my neck area which usually give me problems when I shave with straights. Finished 2nd pass DFS+ primarily because I didn't try to get closer on my neck area as I probably would have drawn blood. The Le Pere Lucien lather was top-notch as usual. While I love using my open comb razors, I'm glad to be able to use some of my other razors this month.

Happy NOvember and great shaves everyone.
