    Monday NOvember 25

    No Repeat (mostly) NOvember. No repeats so far except for scuttle, blades, and alum. Up today, one of my special straight razors, a Snail Forge Ottoman razor - a modern take on the rare Wade & Butcher Ottoman Egyptian razor made in the early 1890's.
    Bowl/Scuttle - GP12
    Soap - HeV Cognac and Cuban Cigars
    Brush - Paladin PK47
    Blade - n/a
    Razor - Snail Forge Ottoman
    Post Shave - OSMA Pierre alum, HeV Cognac and Cuban Cigars Balm

    Shave rating 4 of 5

    I really like this razor. I think I messed up with the soap. The lather was over bubbly and kind of dry and caused a less than optimal shave. I did 2 passes, WTG and XTG, with my Ottoman razor but the lather was dry and the shave was just not good. So I cleaned off the Ottoman and put it away and did a third and final pass XTG with my Red Tip. That pass wasn't great either but the stubble was gone although my face hurt. The alum was a little more vocal that I like. The Cognac and Cuban Cigars balm soothed my face some.
    Happy NOvember and great shaves everyone.

    Nah... Seems the "specials" were stamped that way. I have a couple like that. Probably what makes them special.

    Shrinking away from death is something unhealthy and abnormal which robs the second half of life of its purpose.
