    • Brush: AP Shave Co. - 24mm Synbad Fan
    • Razor: Chiseled Face - Legacy Raw Titanium (#69)
    • Blade: Feather New Hi-Stainless (3)
    • Lather: Central Texas Soaps - Cherry Pipe - Soap
    • Post Shave: Chatillon Lux - Weinstrasse - Aftershave
    • Post Shave: Bulldog - Original Moisturizer
    • Fragrance: Stirling Soap Co. - Varen - EdT

    This soap is getting very low! I think it only has one more shave in it.

    The Feather is still working quite well. Feather, of course, has a reputation for always being called “the sharpest” and “the best”. The first few times I tried them I got lots of irritation. As the story so often goes, I’m either better at shaving now, or maybe I just found a razor that works well with them, but I’ve been getting great shaves.

    The world of Linux is another nerdy community that I’m semi tuned into, and there’s a running joke about people saying “I use Arch, btw”. Arch, in this case, is not beginner friendly relative to a lot of other operating systems, but it has a lot of hardcore fans. Feather is the same way, with expert shavers saying “I use Feather, btw”, and recommending them to new shavers.

      We need to find the equivalent of Manjaro for blades: Based on Feather, but with a decent installer.

      ~Yes, I use Manjaro, why you’r asking?~

      The Feather blades are ground keener than other blades. The Refined Shave (no longer around) did sharpness testing (using a BESS tester) of a number of DE blades and Feather tested as the keenest. However, great keenness is accompanied by great edge fragility. The reduction in keenness from the first to second shave was the largest that was tested as well. I use Feather, btw.

      The world of Linux is another nerdy community

      It is at that! As an embedded systems guy, “I use Yocto, btw”. … for a target Linux OS. For host development, I use whatever distribution is easiest for me to run as a VM under VirtualBox.
