Today's shave ended up being really good. I needed a Soap Commander fix today and Gusto was up next. This particular scent always makes me thirsty due to its raspberry pink lemonade scent which is epic. Today's shave was also the last shave on this Persona injector blade. I lost track of how many shaves I had on it for sure, but I can definitely say that these blade are great for someone who has mild hair and is in their early to mid 20's. My beard is just too tough for these blades along with the Schick injector blades. I was also told that it will get worse in the next couple of years as I turn 40 next year. So it looks like I will be going to Feather blades and a 37C slant which I am very familiar with because I've had one before and I do miss having it: 

Now I have also decided to get just an Arkansas soft oil stone for setting my bevels and sticking with a Norton 4K (by itself, no combo stone). I have still got more than enough of the 8K side of my Norton 4/8K combo stone and I will indeed be getting an ILR natural slate finishing stone. So multiple mail calls will be coming this month. I also will be hitting EBay pretty hard and looking to see what I can find there.
