    Not a bad shave but it wasn't great either. It was number 4 on this blade and I think it's about done. I'll probably try to get one more out of it but I think 5 is tops for it. No irritation and fast 3 pass today. Work Sun so no shave. I'll be back Monday. Be safe my brethren!!

    Default August 20 2011 SOTD

    Prep: hot shower and lingering lather
    Brush: Rooney Silvertip
    Soap: Fitjar Såpekokeri Lighthouse Bay Rum
    Razor: Wester Brothers 4/8ths “Manganese” steel
    Post: Witch Hazel/Aloe



    I took this little guy back to the hones to try and improve the edge... It pops hairs and seems to be sharp but I still don’t quite have it dialled. Maybe it is my technique that is still lacking or that it is the narrowest blade in my rotation and tend to skip it for stouter razors more often than not. The shave just seems to take more work than with bigger blades. Regardless of my minor complaints the shave was relaxing, once I decided to just go with the flow and make extra passes to touch up as needed. As for the result, a decent shave in 2 + passes. One thing I feel I do need to do is find some comfort in different grips and shallower angles.
    Enjoy what is left of the weekend.

    Pre Shave: Oscar Natural Shaving oil (I'm starting to really like it)
    Überlather: Crabtree and Evelyn Nomad, Truefitt and Hill Trafalgar, Glycerin
    ASB: None
    After Shave: Truefitt and Hill Trafalgar
    Summary: Very nice lather today, very smooth.
