Another fine shave

leave a comment »

Today was the first use of the Semogue 1305 boar brush. Before showering, I ran a sink full of hot water and tossed in the brush, which broke off a large chip of the white paint: the bottom edge hit the porcelain of the sink, and the chip broke from the underside paint. So note that a rather brittle paint is used on these.

After soaking, the brush worked up a very good lather from the Institut Karité shaving soap. That was for the first pass—the lather for the second pass was almost nonexistent, so I returned to the soap. For the last pass, I wondered how it would do with a hard-to-lather soap like l’Occitane shaving soap, so I tried it: great lather.

The Futur did a fantastic job, as usual. A great razor, this time with a previously used Astra Keramik blade. And Booster Jickey, which I’ve not tried before, is a very nice old-timey fragrance.
