I’m back!  Took a little break from the blog.  Got somethings in order.  Worked on some projects.  But now I’m back on track.  And back to sharing shaves with you!  Oh and I’ve got some ideas that will be coming soon to the blog so stay tuned!

Good shave this morning.  Letting the ‘stache and ‘burns grow back for the Fall, so just shaving the dome and neck.  Pulled out the Redneck soap.  I’ve liked the performance of this soap from the first day I used it, but couldn’t wrap my head around the scent.  Well time changes things doesn’t it?  Because the scent has grown on me and I now even enjoy it.  I still say it smells like wet newspapers or old damp paperbacks, but I associate those smells with positive memories so it works for me.  The performance is top notch.  Great lather, good slickness.  Nice cushion.  I need to explore more scents from Chiseled Face.

The Rapira blade was on it’s 3rd and last shave.  Was still decently sharp but had lost a lot of it’s smoothness.  Was able to chase the baby without any blood loss or irritation.  Not a bad blade at all, but definitely peaks by the 2nd shave.
