For this morning's shave, I needed a Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements fix. So I went with their Hoppe's #9 scented soap which matches the legendary gun cleaner exactly and of course I had to pair it with their Tombstone scented aftershave which has a gun powder, leather, tobacco, and rose scent and goes perfectly with the #9 scented soap:
In terms of post shave feel it was a really good and a solid post shave. I could get closer with another pass but I already performed 3 passes and I also touched up the left side of my neck next to my Adam's apple which didn't get close enough for me after the 3rd pass. So a new blade and safety razor is definitely needed. I'll be holding off a bit until the Alumigoose is ready and made available. It's pretty much what I consider a hybrid razor because it's neither a safety razor nor a straight razor. You get the best of both with that specific razor. And unlike the Cobra Classic or the King Cobra, it's more affordable and has a better quality to it and better finish as well.
