Additionally, in preparation for Straight Razor shaving, I used both hands to shave today (Rt hand on Rt side of face and Lt hand on Lt side of face). Surprisingly the neck was the only area that I had any issues with.

I think that Trumper's violet cream may be the most overrated product in my rotation. The soap seems to work better for me. Additionally, my fat boy only seems to work with a feather- quite strange.

*Began the shave at 3 but moved to 4 b/c it didn't seem to be giving enough exposure. At 4, better but I think I can get closer with the Merkur HD...something about the FatBoy's head...will continue the rest of the week and see how it all progresses.
**Don't know if I'm going to be a fan. Don't know what it was but seemd to disagree with me on multiple levels.

Been a Yardiac all day, planting, sowing, watering, etc. Waited till about 4:00 PM to shave. What a treat to be wide awake, freshly showered after a sweaty day in the yard, and now closely shaven. It'll be interesting to see what I wake up like in the morning; I'm expecting a BBS face in the AM.
