Today I didn't have a lot of time on my hands to shave, so I grabbed my Edwin Jagger DE 89 with my go to blade choice which is the Perma-Sharps . I went with Resolution this morning. This was Soap Commander's 2014 Christmas scent and it's incredible. It has a mistletoe, fraisier fir and cranberry scent to it. The post shave feel is great. I managed to get a lot closer than I normally do with this razor this morning, but not quite an ice rink type of shave that I usually get with my straight razors. Sometimes I get too close with those:
Speaking of straight razors, I have decided to get a synthetic bevel setting stone and a synthetic finishing stone. I'm going with the Shapton professional series stones. A 1K grit Shapton professional series stone is a really fast but smooth cutting stone compared to the glass version which is a fast cutter but people often claim it to be harsh. I'll fill you guys in on what progression I'll be going with. But I can tell you that the Soft Arkansas will be directly after the 1K bevel setting stone.
