    Mama Bear Orange Orange - Semogue 1520 - 11/16 Wagner & Lange - Myrsol Agua De Limon

    A very relaxing shave today after playing football (soccer) for the first time in at least 6 months. I feel more tired after 90 of football than I did after a 15 Km hike I did a few weeks ago.

    Location: Ottawa, Ontario
    Razor: 17/16 Wade & Butcher For Barbers Use
    Strop: Cangooner Enterprises #3
    Brush: Cangooner Enterprises #1
    Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat
    Scuttle: Robert Baker 002 in Lava Slate
    Shave: 3 passes, WTG/XTG/ATG
    Astringent: Thayer's
    A/S: Captain's Choice Bay Rum

    Today was a special day at Cangooner Enterprises: the first prototype from our Brushworks was successfully tested. The handle was hand carved from a piece of soapstone (although I used a press and forstner bit to bore out a hole for the knot), and the badger knot came from Lee Valley. It's a little small for my liking (20mm) but I was too impatient to wait for a larger knot to arrive in the mail. All of which naturally means I'll just have to make another for a larger knot.

    So today's shave was particularly satisfying as I was able to lather with a brush I made, strop on a strop I made, and shave with a *great* razor whose scales I made. Now, if I could just somehow set up a forge in my apartment without burning the place down and/or being evicted, I could take care of that last piece of the equation. One day... one day...

    It was in original condition, faded red, well-worn, but nice.
    This was and still is my favorite combination; beautiful, original, and worn.

    This day off stuff is the cat's pajamas, slept late, lollygagged around with the lovely Mrs. GI, came home, quick touch up hone, and a good shave (the edge needs a bit more work but the shave was pretty good. Maybe off for a beer and pipe
