    It seems fitting to pull out the razor with mammoth ivory scales, again. This time to honor the incredible Cerberus fragrance by House of Mammoth. Awesome shave today.

    Judging by the number of downvotes, I’d say our federation problem is fixed. Hooray downvotes!

      This post was quadrupleposted by autobot. That must have annoyed a bunch of lemmyers who thought they could teach a bot a lesson

        I figured, haha.

        That bot is broken again with the new update. The dev said they were going to look into it tonight.

    • Brush: Maggard 24mm Synthetic
    • Razor: Gillette Tech (Z-4)
    • Blade: Bolzano Superinox (German) (2)
    • Lather: Barrister & Mann - Roam Two - Soap
    • Post Shave: Noble Otter - Hamami - Aftershave

    A very nice shave.

    Roam Two has lost whatever sharp synthetic scent I smelled when I first got it, so that’s good. It has mellowed out a tad, in fact I wish the scent was stronger. Since it shares a name with the OG Roam I can’t help but hold it to that standard. It’s a good scent, and if it were named something else I think I’d give it more of a fair shake – but OG Roam was just so neat and interesting, and this one leaves me wanting more.

    The Vegan Omnibus base is --chef’s kiss-- 🧑‍🍳💋.

      Oh no, Roam Two is really different?

      I really like OG Roam and was hoping to get a splash that’s similar.

          Well RIP.

          I guess I’ll keep my more and more funky looking balm, then 😂

    Monday, June 10, 2024: Le lundi de l’entropie


    Today, I focused more on getting a close shave with the kamisori. It is really a different feeling, with the blade being much lighter, and also feeling more elastic (if that makes any sense). Anyways, I’m happy about having it, even though stocking and handling a kamisori before and after the shave is not as good as with a Western straight razor with scales.

    I seem to be warming up to Entropy Man, but there is a scent that smells to me slightly rancid, and that stands out.

    Have a good night!

    There was an “Artisan Appreciation” Theme Thursday on January 11 this year (“Use as many artisan and/or collab products as possible. Both software and hardware encouraged.”) and maybe I should have copied my setup from then which featured a total of 12 collaborating artisans, but I’ve done that already and instead this is my first trickhole shave of the games. I’m glad I did it. Cerberus is simply fantastic and I can’t tire of it. It’s also the symbol of collaboration within our sub with three of our favourite artisans working on it together.

    The hardware isn’t a collaboration, but me being able to use it is a result of team work:

    The razor is a loan from @sahenders@sub.wetshaving.social, and I’m impressed with this stunningly elegant razor. Thanks for loaning it to me! The first shave with it was a breeze and I got a comfortable 3-pass shave in. So nice. I’m looking forward to comparing it to the Hawk V3 on loan from u/Wallygator88.

    The brush was originally bought by u/VisceralWatch, then sold to u/EldrormR who loaned and later sold it to me.

    For today’s challenge, I hate to do this to you, but thanks to Djunior, the song stuck in my head, the only song I can think of today is this abomination.
