Razor: Yaqi Double Open Comb
Blade: Feather
Soap: Thirsty Badger Beta
Aftershave: Chatillon Lux Unconditional Surrender
Other: Thirsty Badger lather bowl

a short time ago, I gave my second go at a batch of soap making.  The forumula is pretty much the same as the last batch with a tweak to the scent.  I wanted so make sure I can consistently produce what I was looking for.  The scent on this go is more of a cologne scent.  Notes on this one are Bergamot, Ambroxan, Geranium, Pepper, Lavender, Vetiver, Patchouli.  The scent strength is a little more subtle but I’m quite happy with the vibe on it.

I decided to give a go with a feather blade in the Yaqi double open comb which I have been digging lately.  I must have gotten a bit cocky this go because the sharpness of the feather bit me a couple times.  Very tiny, but a reminder I need to take my time a bit with using these ultra sharp blades.

To finish up, I used Chatillon Lux Unconditional Surrender.  I’m really digging the CL splashes I have.  They are wonderfully complex, carry longer than my average aftershave, and offer a low burn post shave that leaves one feeling fantastic.  A great all around product.  If you need to add some aftershave to the den, give them a look see.
