Power Hammer & The 209:

This morning's shave was okay and it would have been better if the razor's edge was up to snuff more than it is more on that later. This morning I used Power Hammer which was made by Maria Arman over at Through The Fire Fine Craft soaps and it has a deep and rich scent of root beer, espresso, and chocolate notes. And I paired it with PAA's chocolate bourbon scented aftershave which seems like it was made for this soap. Now I am craving some chocolate:


The 209 did good but it started to pull and tug on the 2nd pass and it pulled the hair out of my moustache area and drew some blood as a result. So after I do some yard work, I will more than likely be hitting the stones today or tomorrow one. Usually that's when I know it's time to hit the stones on a razor. When it starts to pull and tug, it's time to either hit the stones or use a pasted strop to freshen up the edge a bit to get a good shave.

Optimism & The Track 2:

Today's shave was excellent. Possibly one of my best shaves of all time. For today's brush, I went with my Omega 10049 Professional...
