A bronzer brush as a shaving brush

leave a comment »

Today I used the Ecotools Bamboo Bronzer Brush as a shaving brush. The main drawback is the handle, not a shape that works well for a shaving brush. The knot has a very short loft and a soft, dense feel, but it did a reasonably good job at making and holding lather. Sort of fun, but this one will not be part of my regular rotation. Still, I’ll keep the brush around because for a real change of pace it’s sort of fun.

Floris Elite (old formulation) is a good soap, and the Edwin Jagger black Chatsworth with the new head and an Astra Superior Platinum blade did a really fine job: BBS or close to it in an enjoyable shave.

A splash of Alt-Innsbruck with its mild hint of menthol sent me on my way. And after all these years, I still derive a great deal of enjoyment from this simple daily ritual.
