Vetivery nice shave

with 2 comments

SOTD 24 Jan 2013

Extremely nice shave today. I used my Vie-Long 11737C “Bombito” boar brush, which is certainly one of my favorite boar brushes and pretty high up there in the overall brush collection. A short soak, and it works very like a horsehair brush.

I got an excellent lather from Honeybee Soap’s Lavender Vetiver shaving soap, though the fragrance is extremely light: not the nose-grabbing vetiver of (say) the Cyril R. Salter Vetiver shaving cream. But the lather was superb, and did a fine job with the Tradere Solid Bar holding a Gillette Rubie blade on its last legs. Despite that, I got a fine shave, and swapped out the blade at the end.

A good splash of Very V aftershave from Saint Charles Shave, and I’m up for a new day.

  1. It would be nice to see the wrappers of the blades you use in your daily pics.
