Kilted Tiki & Aqua Velva:

Today is still known as "Tiki Bar Tuesdays" and up next in the rotation is a classic. If you like Scotch Whiskey then you will love the earthy peat moss scent of this soap and paired with Aqua Velva's classic ice blue aftershave, you've got a very refreshing shave. I figured out what exactly I was doing wrong on the stones with this razor which was the stropping motion before honing. I did NOT do it this time around and today's shave turned out to be a comfortable "ice rink" type of shave. I won't be doing any more of that before honing now. Wow what a nice and comfortable shave:


If I can get this good on a common Norton 4/8K combo synthetic water stone, I can imagine what my edges will be like on natural water stones which will be epic to say the least.

Optimism & The Track 2:

Today's shave was excellent. Possibly one of my best shaves of all time. For today's brush, I went with my Omega 10049 Professional...
