    (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
     
  7. Thanks!! :001_smile

    yeah, had I thought about it, I'd have gone out and grabbed some clover and placed in the shot.. :wink2:

  9. 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)

    [​IMG]


    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:
