Perfect smoothness with $16 razor

Totally wonderful shave. Rose is a great fragrance, IMO—and a classic English fragrance. My Mühle synthetic (silverfiber) brush worked up a terrific lather from the Coate’s shaving cream, a gift from a WEdger: the lather was very thick, fragrant, protective, and slick. Three passes with the Maggard Razor holding a Kai blade, and a BBS results with no nicks, easily and comfortably achieved. A good splash of Bulgarian Rose from Saint Charles Shave, and I’m set for the day.

  1. Very nice…I’d never heard of Coate’s before…Where can it be purchased in the U. S.?

  2. Unfortunately, it’s now a vintage shaving cream. They do make one shaving cream, but it’s not like this one. A vanished brand.
