Shave Count (DE: 442 SE: 9 SR: 562)

Pre Shave-
Strop: Tony Miller Plain Vanilla
Splash and go

Shave-
Razor: Solingen SR
Blade: none
Brush: Zenith Boar
Soap: Stirling Nag Champa

Post Shave-
Post shave lather
AS: Stirling Nag Champ

Late morning shave today and it was very nice. Did I mention that I am doing a staycation this week? Yup, burning more PTO before the end of the year. So I grabbed the Zenith out of the trade/sale pile. I wanted to pay more attention and see why I’m not overly fond of it. It’s a 24mm and it’s not very dense. Paints well and soft bristles, but not much backbone and no scritch. Hit the soap for a 30 second load time and got to work.

10 laps on cotton and 40 on leather to get started. I went with my standard three passes of WTG, XTG and ATG with no drama to report. A very relaxing 3 passes and I am BBS for the win! The soap was the typical great Stirling performance and the scent was strong throughout the shave. I did have enough lather left for a post shave lather while I cleaned my shave gear.

Wrapped everything up with a quick rinse and pat dry. A healthy splash of the AS and everything was right as rain! You know it was. The soap starts out with a slightly different scent than the final dry down. But I really dig the scent! Still not sure about the brush. I may hang on to it and reknot with a different boar. Life is good!
