Last shave of August
Another exceptionally good shave, absolutely perfect in every way. I soaked the Tres Claveles horsehair brush while I showered (not sure that it’s needed, but why not?), and it worked up an excellent lather from the Geo. F. Trumper Coconut Oil shaving soap: plenty for lots of passes. The curiously comfortable iKon High Polish open comb did a fantastic job with its gradually aging Swedish Gillette blade. I like this razor a lot, and I’m thinking of having it gold plated. Razor Emporium offers both red and green gold, and I’m inclining toward the green.
A splash of Jade East, and I’m (finally) ready for the day. (Today was sleeping late and the like.)
