PAA Mixed Soap:

This morning's shave was great. I was craving something but really wasn't sure so I grabbed my PAA Mixed Soap container. Think of a sweetened barbershop in terms of the scent. It's also my very last Bolzano Superinox DE blade which I will NOT be buying again. They're pretty good blades, but they're simply not good enough for my tough beard:

The post shave is great. Nice and pretty smooth, but not quite my usual ice rink like I get with my straight razors. No email yet from Mongoose Razors about the Alumigoose. If I don't hear anything by Thursday, I'll check my retailer and see if they have anymore Mongoose Razors in stock. The Edwin Jagger DE 89 just simply isn't getting done for me anymore in terms of both post shave feel and efficiency. With a straight razor, I only need to make 2 passes at the most. I can say the same thing with a 37C slant and if I use a Feather DE blade, PAA's double OC falls into this category as well. I've never shaved with a Mongoose Razor before but I have used those blades in the Feather Artist Club Non folding Japanese style shavette. The blades are really good.

Asian Plum & The 430:

Today's soap and aftershave was phenomenal . Peter Charkalis if you are reading this, you hit a grand slam on this one. Wow what a soap...
