English Lavender and Big Ben

leave a comment »

An English-themed shave this morning, and a very pleasant one, too. First, Tryphon English Lavender shaving cream (Italian), which is my favor lavender shave cream or soap. Then a new blade: Big Ben, made in Egypt. I put it in the Edwin Jagger Lined Chatsworth (English), a nice hefty razor with an elite version of the Merkur Classic head (Germany). The Simpsons Key Hole 3 Best worked up a fine and fragrant lather, and the Chatsworth and Big Ben shaved away the stubble smoothly and effortlessly. I would say that the Big Ben blade is better than the Racer blade, but of course I used the two in different razors and the weight of the Chatsworth may have added to the smoothness of the shave. But the Big Ben seemed nicely sharp.

The finish was D.R. Harris Marlborough aftershave, English in origin and name.

Great shave.
