Elite Razor and Omega Boar

with 3 comments

SOTD 18 Jan 2013

Breaking in a new Omega boar: first actual use (after a couple of practice lathers), and I’m happy to report that it held plenty of lather for the three passes—thanks in part, no doubt, to the excellent RazoRock Napoleon Violet shaving soap, which produced an excellent lather quickly and easily.

Three passes with the red jasper Elite Razor, this one with an Edwin Jagger head and hold a Swedish Gillette blade. Very smooth finish, to which a good splash of Krampert’s Bay Rum was applied. Ready for the day once more!

  1. Michael, how would you rate Krampert’s Bay Rum among other bay rum aftershaves? Decided I want to give one a try and have absolutelly no idea where to start?

    Thank you.

  2. It’s quite good. Kramfert’s, Captain’s Choice, and TOBS are currently my faves. I have not tried a Saint Charles Shave bay rum, but I should: I like her other aftershaves.

  3. Thank you very much! Unfortunatelly, Lady from Saint Charles does not ship to Europe. 😦

    Beeing where I am, TOBS wold probably be most reasonable.
