      2 passes. Face lather. Excellent shave.

    Much of today’s shave comes courtesy of u/VisceralWatch. At different times, he has gifted me the soap, the razor and a tuck of these razor blades. Thank you sir!

    The scent on C&C is a deep, rich coffee with a touch of cream in it that gives off a hint of unsweetened chocolate. I love it, and it pairs very well with Leviathan; but, then, really, what doesn’t. Great soap base (thanks SBS), and great scent.

    I have a small but reasonable vintage DE collection. Not really a bad razor in it, but the English Flat Bottomed Tech always surprises me with how comfortable and natural it feels in-hand. It’s this, and whinging about the weather, that make me an anglophile.

      Anglophile is a new word for me. I also tend to enjoy English things. Some of my favorite bands and TV shows are British.

        That’s true for me as well.
