Shave of The Day - February 15

One of my motivations for this blog is to keep track of what I am shaving with and how it works.  So I will be doing an occasional "Shave Of The Day" post.  I hope to write compelling copy and take some decent photos to go along with it.

So let's get going!

February 15 SOTD

Today I used the following:
Razor: Gillette PreWar Fat Handle Tech
Blade: Gillette 7 O'Clock Super Platinum
Soap:  RazoRock for Captain's Choice
Brush and Bowl: Van Der Hagan starter set
Captain's Choice Bay Rum aftershave

I received a sample of the shaving soap from Captain's Choice when I purchased the aftershave and was not sure how much to use.  As you can see, it appears I may have used enough, but upon shaving with it, I'm not certain.  It didn't really last on my face, but the shave was fine.  I added some more soap to my bowl for the 2nd and 3rd passes and still did not have a long lasting lather.  It felt slick but not very cushioning. 

Regardless, good shave to keep my day going.  Can't wait to shave again tomorrow!


  1. Nice start on your shaving blog. Got here from The Shave Den. Check out my shaving blog at . Happy shaving.

  2. I really like that bay rum aftershave. It is my favorite.
