Treet Black Beauty and BBS result
I thought I’d show off my stash of Treat carbon-steel blades, which I call “Black Beauties”: see the unwrapped blade in front. The little jar once held a pâté de lapin, but any wide-mouthed jar will do. Those that held food products generally open/close with one quarter-turn, so I prefer those. (Canning jars, for example, require multiple complete turns to remove the lid). I get 99% rubbing alcohol at Safeway, where it’s inexpensive.
I worked up a fine lather from the RazoRock artisan soap—quite a nice soap, and then used a Treet blade in my Edwin Jagger DE86bl: three passes and a BBS result, no nicks and no burn.
A good splash of Blenheim Bouquet, and I’m ready for the day.
I’ve sort of cleared off the bathroom counter top—as clear as it’s likely to get—so tomorrow I’ll post a couple of photos of what remains. In another room: a bookcase of aftershaves, two boxes of shaving soaps and creams, and a box of brushes. I’ll occasionally raid the brushes and soaps to bring in items I’ve not used for a while, but as you’ll see, I still have quite a few left available.
