Sorry, I don't remember to take pictures plus I have such a small rotation of soaps, razors etc you guys will get bored of seeing the same stuff. Anyway, I had a great shave today, the Bolzano blade is through its 3rd round of shaving (I think?) and still holding its ground. I said to myself if I find one that'll get me past 3 or 4 good shaves it'll hit the rotation. So I'm keeping it going for the next round to see how well it holds up. I have plenty more to try though as I'm going through the gifted bunch from Kelvin and been buying the individual packs, few more soaps and aftershaves. SMH. Hell, I was enjoying my shave so much I took a big gamble and did 3 passes instead of my usual 2. Really felt great today.
Oh yeah I am. It's bad HAHA. I already have a decent Maggard razors order ready to go, just waiting to save up some funds before I hit that checkout button. I've been really trying to be good, but when my beard comes back (whenever that will be due to the corona virus) I can still do some wet shaving around my neck line etc so it's fine by me to have some of this all laying around.Sounds like you are getting into it now bud. I will have to get me some Bolzanos to try out.

I'm waiting on this last order from Maggard (should've been here yesterday, smh) and I think I'm set on soaps for a bit. I might shoot for some bay rum samples but having 3 or 4 decent soaps in my rotation is good enough. It's a struggle to pick from the little rotation I have. Even the blades, I'm set for a while. Although, keeping tabs on the ones that work best for me which I might get a bulk pack.Yeah its a slippery slope. You know if I could start over I would just get maybe 3 or four good soaps and aftershave and would then buy all the samplers of soap and aftershave I could. I find that a tub of soap take a very long time to finish off and with a sampler you can get a good three or four shaves from one. Just order a whole bunch of samplers and try em. I've got so many soaps and aftershave and blades, I don't know when I'm gonna finish em. I'm tempted to buy more but so far I've exercised self control. Maybe next year.
