As smooth as a slant shave
A perfectly smooth result: two-day stubble, good prep, three passes of my slant with a new Astra Keramik Platinum new blade: a great way to start the week.
I wash my beard with the lanolin version of Jlocke98’s formula, then easily worked up a fine lather with the Omega Pro 48 (but the 20248, rather than the 10048, which is unbanded). This brush really did seem to break in immediately, and it has excellent lather capacity. The lather from How To Grow A Moustache’s shaving soap is superb, and the large format puck aids loading.
The iKon Slant is a pussycat with the right blade, and I got a totally comfortable shave. A splash of Annik Goutal’s Eau de Sud, and the week opens.
