First shave today since leaving Florida last Saturday. 5 days growth! It’s been a very long time since I’ve waited so long, but with my bad head-cold and lack of sleep, I just plain didn’t feel like it. The beauty of waiting this long is that the skin under the beard has had a chance to fully recover from earlier shaves and is left with an unprecedented smoothness once the beard comes off. I used my small Excelsior (Portugal) boar brush along with some J.M. Fraser Mosswood shave cream, and a twice-used Shark blade in the E.J. Chatsworth. An amazing shave and a welcome relief from a week of shaving in Florida with the much-despised Fusion.
