    Sunday morning
    Hot water prep
    Ali's Blade 9/8 Raptor razor - Custom Silvertip Badger brush - Acca Kappa 1869 SC - cold water splash - Acca Kappa 1869 asb - hot shower - Acca Kappa 1869 AdC


    This razor arrived yesterday in the mail and though I had enough stubble for it, I decided to save it for the Sunday shave. I can't get over the beauty of this razor. The lines are perfect. Elegant, yet aggressive. Stylish, yet deadly. It's like a De Pew's on steroids, it's organic, it's, it's... whatshammacallit... Well, it sure shaves like a dream and the all-Acca Kappa sure made me feel like a million. Here's to a great week gents!

    And the Magnolia has finally started flowering. Spring has started. Now it's waiting for the first swifts in the sky.
