WSP Monarch, Meißner Tremonia Strong ‘n Scottish, The Holy Black SR-71 slant, and Chiseled Face Easy Street

Meißner Tremonia shaving soaps all contain clay, so I wasn’t taken by surprise by having to add water during loading, though in fact today I had to add very little. The Holy Black slant is quite nice: same head as the Merkur 37 but with a very hefty handle (which, oddly, makes the handle feel shorter than the 37 handle, though it’s the same length). Three passes, totally smooth, and a good splash of Easy St.

Great way to start the day. Still no morning walk, both because The Younger Daughter is here and because the smoke level from the forest fires is so high (10+ on a 10-point scale). I ordered a box of N95 approved filtering facepiece particulate respirators, and those will be here Friday. I’ll use them when the smoke’s bad. When TYD and I were driving back from De Vine Vineyards we saw people who were working on highway construction wearing the masks.
