(boooo!)
no seriously, i'm trying to use up the rest of my cartridges. this one was getting kinda dull too. left a little rough-ish patch on the chin. DFS other than that.

also of note: it was only my second shave ever with this brush; a step up from my AOS Pure Badger one. Still getting a feel for its water retention and stuff, but i do like the feel of it
 
This morning's (Wednesday, March 17) shave:

Plisson Size 8 High Mountain White Brush | Nancy Boy Shaving Cream | Union Cutlery Spike | Charismata Mini-Razor Restoration/Salvage of a Heljestrand MK 31 | Nivea ASB (not shown)




This was a DFS in more ways than one: the Union Spike is an eBay purchase I honed myself, the first honing I've ever done, and the mini-razor, aside from rescuing a blade I'd broken and putting it in handsome, wonderfully made scales, is a perfect size for some hard to reach nooks and crannies.

So when I was done, I not only felt well-shaved, but like someone able to maintain some important tools for their daily life, and fortunate to be part of a community ready and willing to assist me in that. If that ain't a DFS, then there ain't no such thing! :smile:

Wonderful people, beautiful music, fantastic pubs, eminet wiskey, charming landscapes, gorgeous golfcourses and Guinness.

The glass, by the way, is a glass I some years ago had as a gift in an Irish Officer's Mess in Kosovo.

So todays choise:
