June 9, 2024 Sunday shave

Razor: Lambda Athena pass around with shortened Razorock Ti Halo handle
Blade: Personna Lab Blue (2)
Soap: Razorock New York
Brush: AP Shave Co. 24mm G5A (9)
Bowl: Captain's Choice Heavyweight copper
Post shave: Omega alum block, Thayer's Witch Hazel
Aftershave: Fine Snake Bite

This was the second shave with the pass around Lambda Athena. It was a marvelous shave. Two things improved this shave from the previous Athena shave: first, the blade settled down from its first use, second I used less pressure. The result was much better. I can see why this beautiful razor has such an enthusiastic group of users!

The three pass shave was nearly perfect except for a tiny micro weeper on the chin which went away by itself before the shave was concluded.

BBS. Wow, excellent! It's a shave for the record books! :thumbup:

Enjoy your day!
