New Year's Day's Shave
[Image: zcws.jpg]

Cold Water Rinse
De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap
Jayaruh #395 Badger
Triceratops 3D Printed Razor
Personna GEM SS PTFE
CWR
Pinaud Citrus Musk EdC

Today: Triceratops with black top, black handle.

The De Vergulde Hand Shaving Soap face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #395 Badger. Two passes and touch ups with the Triceratops 3D Printed Razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Citrus Musk EdC. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

This was my first shave of the new year. I went with the Gem Bullet tip with guiding eye. I don't use this razor often because it's a milder razor. But with a little extra work it delivers a great shave.
