Speick and the DLC

with 2 comments

Speick makes good stuff. The shave stick produces a fine lather, generated this morning by the Simpson Emperor 3 Super. The knot looks lopsided because of a crowded brush rack: it dried with the knot pressed against one side of the rack. But once wet, it straightened up and did a fine job. The Emperor handle is particularly nice, and I’ve not seen another brush with the same sort of grip.

The DLC Weber with an Astra Superior Platinum blade did a fine job. The DLC and the ARC definitely differ in the feel on the face, but both are comfortable and efficient in shaving. Three passes followed by a splash of Speick’s aftershave. Good start to the day.

  1. Ah yes! A lovely brush indeed. I too like the shape of the handle. In fact I think the M7 has a similar
    handle. I have three of the M7s in super and Manchurian badger. The handles are a light tortoise shell,
    butterscotch and ivory. The ‘better half’ hasn’t noticed them thus far.
