Secret shave

leave a comment »

I did an unphotographed shave this morning. I decided on the spur of the moment to try Mike’s Natural with a boar brush (the Omega 40033 Mighty Midget), since I now knew more about making lather with that soap. In fact, the boar for me did not work so well with that soap as did the badger. My next go with the soap will be with a horsehair brush.

Nonetheless, I got a fine shave with the Tradere Straight Bar—really an excellent razor—and a Gillette Rubie blade. A splash of Saint Charles Shave Bulgarian Rose aftershave, and I’m sitting here enjoying a BBS result.
