Koh-I-Noor Boar again

with one comment

I can tell the Koh-I-Noor boar brush is going to be a favorite. It’s still breaking in, but it’s going to be at least as good as the Omega Pro 48, and the handle (of solid aluminum) is much nicer than the Omega 48 handle. (Omega does have some nice handles, but the 48’s is just molded plastic.) It worked up an excellent lather from De Vergulde Hand shaving soap (thanks, Jack), though I did have to revisit the soap for the third pass.

The Progress did a fine job—I believe it has an Astra Keramik blade, previously used—and three passes produced a smooth and happy face, which I then splashed with Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet aftershave.
