QED and the bakelite Slant

leave a comment »

Patchouli, Tea Tree, and Peppermint is a great combination for an early morning wake-up fragrance. The Vie-Long flat-top make a fine lather from it, and the bakelite Slant, which I increasingly like, did a good job though this may be this Swedish Gillette blade’s last shave—I’ll see how the first pass of the next shave goes. Of course, poor prep and dull blades have the same effect, but the prep was good—the usual pre-shave shower and beard wash, and I took my time with the lather. I don’t count shaves on a blade, simply using them until dull, but this seems like early retirement for this blade. But blades do vary occasionally, so we’ll check it on the next shave.

A splash of Floris JF, and I’m ready for the start of a new week.
