Trying the Henson AL 13 with a RK blade for its second shave. Another good shave. This is the 65th shave with the Ethos unscented soap. A nice, easy BBS early morning shave. It is going to be a warm one today in AZ. The expected high: 106! Have a good one, folks.

The last day celebrating @Colonel Conk products in the SOTD theme bearing their name, but not the last day enjoying the use of their soap.

Placed my Ω 10048 piggy brush bristles down in a coffee cup of cold water several hours before shaving and experienced both the softness felt with the Whipped Dog piggy brush in previous shaves. Also had two shaves in a row where no prep was no problem. I suspect ambient humidity over well-soaked piggy brushes, but good is good.

WTG, XTG, and ATG and I was close enough for the win! Aftershave said I was too close, but that’s okay. Will see if showering before shaving makes these results even better.
