SOTD 2nd July
3 days growth taken care of with aplomb. 3 passes and great post shave feel.
Soap - Catie's Bubbles Midnight Dreary - beautiful lather and scent courtesy of BST and @Rohleder. Gonna be using this regularly.
Razor - Parker 65r - got this really dialled in and love using it.
Blade - Shark SS#5 - what a performer! A sleeper of a blade. Fifth use and could have gone on some more.
Brush - Yaqi Sagrada Familia - usual lather monster performance.
Post - Mennen Skin bracer and L'Oréal Hydra Birch Sap - complimented each other well.
Take care everyone and enjoy your shaves.

SOTD 3rd July 2020

Razor - Karve SS with D plate
Blade - Souplex
Soap - Fitjar - Fjellheim hard soap
Brush - Simpson T3
Post - Thayers astringent
Frag - Guerlain - Vetiver EdT

I've gone through all the plates I have with this razor A, B, C & D now and can get a perfect shave from all of them, I prefer the "C " plate when using Souplex blades, a very good razor set indeed :)
My first use of the Simpson T3 brush today and although I found it a little springy at first it is proving to be a very good brush, I look forward to using it in my rotation of brushes.
The Fitjar shave soap is wonderful and was thinking today how similar it is to Signature Soaps in many ways which should please @BrianH no end! :) well done Brian!
All in all a very good shave and one that left me with baby smooth skin and zero irritation .

Untill the next time, stay safe and be lucky. :)

Paul.

I much prefer the T3 to the Chubby 2 Synthetic, can never get that sucker to splay, I know it states the painting method, but it's very unusual for a synthetic not to splay. The T3 at its price point, is a steal however.
