Have some great shaves!
MONDAY, 7 October

Pre: Pantene conditioner
Brush: PAA Atomic Rocket synth
Lather: Stirling Barber Shop
Blade: USTA (2)
Razor: Hone Type 15
Post: Alum Block
Splash: Homebrew of WH, 4711, glycerin and menthol

Rating: 10

Two ATG passes--along with some touch-ups--did the trick.
For a heavy razor, the Hone is surprisingly nimble below the nose
and above the lip. Additionally, the brass Hone rides much smoother
over a beard that's been prepped with hair conditioner. Must be the dimethicone.
First time i left 5 days growth since DE shaving (past couple of years). My growth is quite fast and usually shave every so i looked a bit rough.

the JAWS got through around 90% of the growth on the first WTG pass.. Then a nice XTG and ATG.. followed up with one more ATG but only on the face (no neck) let me with BBS happiness... what a razor.
