This morning's shave was great. I was going to put one more shave on the Bolzano Superinox blade I had in there but I said to heck with it and put in a fresh Perma-Sharp blade. It done a good job and removed by beard pretty well this morning. But tomorrow's shave will pretty much tell the same story. I'll get 1 more good shave on this blade tomorrow and that will be it for this blade. About this time last year, I would get 4 shaves out of these blades in a Merkur 37C slant bar razor. Now I am doing good to get 2 shaves out of these blades in an Edwin Jagger DE 89 razor. And the 37C slant is a blade eater to boot. Welcome to 40 is basically what my beard is now saying:
The scent on this soap is root beer and espresso and you also get a few notes of chocolate in there as well. PAA's chocolate bourbon scented aftershave was basically made for this soap.
