Well it has been a while since I last reported in. I took a leave of absence to try to sharpen up my skills not only in the bathroom, but life as well. I needed a break all over basically from the busyness of life. So I did a little introverting and now I am back. Not probably a daily posting back, but back none the less. I think I am changing the direction a little bit of this blog. It will still future my shaving experiences, but maybe turning into some advice and possibly feature others in there shaving experiences.
So as for the theme of this posting, daily shaving. I have become more of a DE shaver rather than a straight edge guy. I like straight edge shaving, but it is time consuming and takes a while to hone in your skills. I am still putting around with it, but it defiantly is not my main focus at this point. I dare say I even sold one of my straights last month. I sold the Dovo Black Micarta, it was a more advanced razor for such a beginner as myself. I love my Dovo Prima Klang and think I will stick with that for my occasional straight adventure.
Now as for my every day shaving, I am regularly using a rotation of razors. If you have been reading my postings for some time you will remember that I have several Gillette adjustable’s and a Edwin Jagger. I stick with one razor till I dull out a blade and then use a different one with a new blade. It seems to be working out nicely, just as my face starts to get used to a razor, I switch it up and it never hurts. Could also be that I just am getting better with multiple razors. I love mixing it up to, keeps me from getting bored each morning. I am still using only a single brand of blade, the Feather Blade. Love this blade, and hope that they keep making them for a long time.
I havent picked up any new gear other than a mug. I found one in a tourist shop on one of my trips that was wider and shorter than any mug I have come across. Got it home and it fit a 3 inch puck of soap like a glove, it being short is perfect as well for lathering up. When I get some time I will post it under the Shaving Den section. I will keep you posted from time to time, but will not be on a regular basis as before. I am glad to be back at it again.
Dont turn that dial,
