An even better shave

leave a comment »

Today’s shave was clearly going to be good from the first stroke of the razor. The lather was from Taylor of Old Bond Street St. Jame’s shaving cream, and the brush was the Plisson horn-handled High Mountain White.  Very nice lather, and the fragrance was pleasant on a dreary, rainy morning.

Then a Gillette Diplomat with a brand new Treet Blue Special blade—a smooth, flawless initial stroke, and it just got better. Three passes, all effortless and a perfectly smooth skin was revealed, with nary a nick or cut.

Aftershave was TOBS St. Jame’s aftershave. And I’m set.
