I haven't posted here in a long time. I've been dealing with my medical condition going haywire and it has been a lot on me emotionally. I've been having a hard time dealing with depression again. Been fighting with everything I have to not let the depression get where it was a very long time ago. But today has been ok. So I am posting while I can.

Puma 222 4/8" just got it honed today and it is an amazing razor. I have to say it gives my Japanese razors a run for their money. I got an unbelievable deal on it and it's now on my list of top razors i own.

Beau Brummel 2 1/2" strop. I have no idea what leather it is but it is as soft as my Kanayama Cordovan. The back is the coated linen and I'm starting to think the coating is something like a diamond paste.

Paladin 24mm 2band brush. I cannot remember knot code but it's a really nice brush. I am so glad I have it.

B&M Fougere Angelique soap and aftershave. I love the scent hate trying to spell this freaking name

Excellent soap with quality creamy and slick lather. Really nice orangy scent and cooling sensation
3rd shave with this SE razor and blade was kinda uncomfortable. Can feel the blade is not sharp resulting in some not so smooth passes especially atg. Still managed 3passes but with 2 tiny dots of creepers...not too bad. DFS++ result.
Excellent post and aftershaves. Rating 9/10
