Tres Claveles & Lenthéric

leave a comment »

Once again I got fine lather from the Tres Claveles for the first two passes, a little sparse on the third pass. It still could be a matter of breaking in, but I think perhaps horsehair just is not so good for shaving brushes as badger or synthetic.

Three passes with the Feather premium bearing a Feather Hi-Stainless blade. I did do an additional pass: an oil pass using jojoba. For whatever reason, it seemed necessary: the face was not so slippery at the end as it should have been, perhaps due to the lather issue.

Still: the end result is a fine shave, finished with a splash of Alt Innsbruck.
