Remainder of yesterday's PAA Solstice lather in the Turkish Copper bowl
Razor 1
- JA Henckels Solingen Friodur 472

Amazing! Yesterday's leftover lather in the bowl...looks dried-up but upon adding some water and working it against the bowl...a healthy resulting lather which is slick enough too. Mild scent still present. Tried shaving with the SR (just completed so called self-honing on film) 2 pass wtg & xtg but not very good. Not really shave ready. Guess my honing skills is still way off.
I'd had a henckels I tried my turn at straight shaving with. It lasted a week or so before I decided just to stick with the DE which worked. Well done on saving the soap from yesterday, mine would've gone down the plug hole.

A few days ago the sides of my mouth reacted with Marmite, where I shovel in larger amounts of toast than the size of my mouth will allow. It was still feeling sore this morning. As a result each each shaving pass, shave less area of my face, with the sides only on the first pass. I done a similar thing yesterday. It a surprisingly smooth shave, where I was expecting a few rough areas. Sides of my mouth are a little rough. I'm still only able to get a decent lather if I rub the soap on my face first. I've got a synthetic brush on the way sort of recommended by @Scotshave.

Hi Natjag, thanks for the comment. Yeah, I love to straight shave but unfortunately, I have poor skills understanding honing plus not having the right tools. I am as surprised by the leftover lather too...hahahahaha...I guess I saw it was really thick and creamy. Interesting to hear about your reaction to Marmite. I love mine on toast..

3 Passes for a DFS result today, the 2 dot plate requires a little work to achieve BBS for me, however, initially i found the 3 Dot plate a tad too much, i may have to give it another spin.
I still enjoyed the shave and it was very relaxing, at no time do you feel as if the razor is going to bite.
A great face lather today with the 1912/Alpha Ti Synth combo finishing with the Floïd post shave routine.
A late Post as i have been on Hairdressing duties for Mrs TC, she is very happy with her new colour, i also quite like it.
I may have given myself a new regular job here.
Stay safe and enjoy the rest of your day.
