Last shave of August

with 2 comments

Another exceptionally good shave, absolutely perfect in every way. I soaked the Tres Claveles horsehair brush while I showered (not sure that it’s needed, but why not?), and it worked up an excellent lather from the Geo. F. Trumper Coconut Oil shaving soap: plenty for lots of passes. The curiously comfortable iKon High Polish open comb did a fantastic job with its gradually aging Swedish Gillette blade. I like this razor a lot, and I’m thinking of having it gold plated. Razor Emporium offers both red and green gold, and I’m inclining toward the green.

A splash of Jade East, and I’m (finally) ready for the day. (Today was sleeping late and the like.)

  1. Jade East!
    I haven’t seen that since high school, and I think I’m about your age. I didn’t know they still made that stuff. It got kind of a bad rap in my youth because some guys would use it instead showering.

  2. I did shower. 🙂 Steve of Kafeneio told me about this a while back. I knew nothing of it in high school—Old Spice all the way—but I rather enjoy it now.
