Give me lanolin, or give me death ...

I'm shaving fairly infrequently again but when I do, I'm really enjoying the Yaqi Katana and a little pile of Shark, Lord, Big Ben & Asco blades. I'm enjoying the single edge format with half DE blades and actually like to do that even with a DE razor, just using one side. Use once and ditch - it saves me all that anguish and heartache around just how many shaves you can get from which blades.

Anyway, tonight's shave ...

Wash up with Ach Brito Glyce
Lather up with Mitchell's Wool Fat & RazoRock 400 w/Black Fibre
Shave with Yaqi Katana & Asco Super Stainless (1)
One pass to whip off 8 days and another to catch any stragglers
Hot rinse, cold rinse and pat dry
Generous splash of Brut Musk
Reminds me of the Dead Kennedy album 'Give me convenience or give me death'

After a warm shower, and some Lucky Tiger Face Wash, I broke into my newly arrived Oaken Labs - Sanctum soap. This is my first experience with a nice, tallow-based soap, and it isn't difficult to understand the appeal. Since I was trying the soap for the first time, I skipped the pre-shave treatment, and had nary a problem, even with my relatively sensitive skin. Shave was with a Merkur 23C, and an Astra SP on its second use. Finished with the matching AS, and everything is fine like wine. The dusty floral and low wood notes are haunting and wonderful.

Within my still novice skill-range, this was a perfect shave.
