Today's shave was great. It's been a while since I've used Tiki Bar so after showering, I went with her Volcano scented vegan soap which has an incredible semi sweet tropical fruit scent to it. And to finish it off, I paired it with my usual aftershave splash:
The black diamond was great as well. It will be the only straight razor you will see until I can get some more and it won't be smaller than a 6/8's either. Those smaller blades simply don't have enough weight behind them to go through my barbed wire type of beard anymore.
