Today's shave was great. Sorry for the delay ladies and gentlemen. I had some technical issues with my router which are now fixed. Today I tore into my Wet The Face sample kit and I went with their barbershop scented soap which is amazing. To my nose, I get a semi sweet tobacco and powder type of scent and for some reason, Aqua Velva classic ice blue aftershave goes with this sample perfectly.

The 209 did great but it needs more time on the stones to get it where I want and need it to be. The good thing is that I finally got the geometry towards heel on the spine of the razor.

I already got a tracking number for it when I bought it off EBay.
