Brush works fine

with 2 comments

I used the cleaned Omega brush today, with Mitchell’s Wool Fat Shaving Soap. No lather problems, and I lathered on my face as usual. The brush is now a little larger than I’m used to, but it did a fine job.

I used a blue Lady Gillette TTO razor with a brand new Treet Black Beauty. I noticed for the first time the nice design of the Treet packaging: the blade is double wrapped, but when you open the outer wrapper, if you just continue the unwrapping, it also removes the inner wrapper, since the two are attached by a spot of glue. Cute.

Very fine and smooth shave. And I finally did use the Barbasol aftershave. Great start to a new day.

  2. You can get them here (scroll down—they’re the ones called Treet Blue Special). Because there’s so much variance in how shavers respond to that blade, though, I’d recommend instead that you get the sampler pack that includes the Treet Blue Special: Sampler Pack #1, #3, or #4. That way, if you don’t like the Treet Blue Special, you can probably find some other blades in the pack that you do like.
