Yardley and a great shave

leave a comment »

Yardley is a vintage soap, no longer made. Tallow-based, lavender-scented, it’s a wonderful soap, and the Vie-Long chestnut horsehair brush worked up a superb lather immediately. The Weber DLC head with his Bulldog handle did a great job, using a previously used Wilkinson Sword blade. Three very nice passes, a splash of Saint Charles Shave New Spice, which we were just talking about on Wicked_Edge, and I’m ready for a fine Saturday.

Backdrop is John Fairbairn’s fine book of the match between Kaku Takagawa (Honinbo when I first started Go) and Go Seigen, a true Go genius.
