When I got home today, I had three boxes of shaving goodies waiting for me!
The first was a 1.5X size, Dirty Bird Skuttle
Second was my Merkur, Slant, and
Third was a tube to store my brush when I travel, some new aftershave and an alum block.
My wife couldn't believe it, but I immediately went to shave, using the slant and the new DB Skuttle. It was GREAT on both counts. The lather was warm and the shave from the slant was fantastic.
I must admit that I did get my first small nick, but it was from rushing the shave and I can hardly wait for my next one!
