Creed again

leave a comment »

Since I unquestionably had a superior lather yesterday from Creed’s Green Irish Tweed shaving soap, I thought I’d try the soap again with a brush that’s been not quite so good: the Vie-Long horsehair. Of course, this brush has been used only a few times, so it could be a matter of breaking it in.

In any event, this morning I got three very good passes of soap from the brush—no scarcity at alll on the third pass, and that’s new. I did think that the Omega synthetic-bristle brush was a tad bit better, but again: the Vie-Long brush has had few uses. On Monday, I think I’ll use the soap once more, this time with the Rooney 2.

With such a good lather, I enjoyed the shave—and the Elite Razor with the Merkur Classic head (and holding an Astra Keramik blade of a few uses) did a great job. Three passes to smoothness, and a splash of Draggon Noir to send me on my way.
