Excellent shave for Presidents’ Day

with 2 comments

SOTD 17 Feb 2014

A totally wonderful shave to start the week: my Plisson Chinese Grey worked up a superb lather with a spicy fragrance from Strop Shoppe’s Russian Tea shaving soap. The anonymous German slant, holding a Personna Platinum Super Stainless blade, did an impeccable job. I like the head design, quite curvy, and with the correct angle it simply wipes off the stubble.

A good splash of Royall Spyce, and the day is well launched.

  1. I’m still thinking about the bade exchange following your Saturday post. I’m stuck, but satisfied, with Feather and Treet but maybe I am missing something? Will you make a couple of suggestions for blades to try and where to shop for them. Your suggestions are always appreciated.

  2. Quite a few vendors offer good selections of blades: RazorBladesAndMore.com, MaggardRazors.com, ShoeboxShaveshop.com, BullgooseShaving.com, WestCoastShaving.com. I suggest you might try Kai, the Gillette 7 O’Clock family, Rapira, Voskhod, Personna Lab Blues, Personna 74, and others. Maggard has a “build your own sampler” that’s good. And, general, when you order (say) a new supply of a shaving soap, add a couple of packs of blades you’ve not previously tried.
