Good shave, though not fully BBS, using my Mühle silverfiber (synthetic) brush and Queen Charlotte Soaps Vostok as the shaving soap: a highly mentholated soap, for those who like that sort of thing. I’m a little iffy about mentholated soaps/shaving creams, but I was curious. The lather, though, was superb.
I used my Gillette 1940′s Aristocrat (late 1940′s) with a Swedish Gillette blade, one that seems to be past its prime and will now be replaced. I just got a 5-pack of Personna Labs, so I’ll try one of those.
The use of the Mühle silverfiber brush and the Aristocrat is due to discussions on Wicked_Edge, which suggest things to try in the morning shave.
