Tabac and Ecotools

with one comment

SOTD 25 Jan 2013

This is another test shave: Seeing how the Ecotools Kabuki (a very soft brush) performs on Tabac, a hard (and tallow-based) shaving soap. Once again the Ecotools took a little longer to load—not significantly, but noticeably: 15 seconds instead of 10 seconds. But then, fully loaded, it produced a wonderful lather on my beard and held loads of lather—enough for 8 passes at least, though I stopped at 3. Brushing the lather up on my beard is a real pleasure: not only the wonderful lather, but the brush feels extremely nice.

My trust Edwin Jagger DE86bl (less than $30 from Amazon) showed again why it’s a first-class razor. Really, a novice who buys this razor would need only to buy a slant bar a year later to have a complete razor chest of wonderful razors.

Three passes, great shave, splash of Tabac, and I’m read for Friday.

  1. Michael-
    Your ecotools brush find is no doubt your discovery of the year. After using it for weeks now, I am still delighted with the way it feels in your hand and on your face (those soft tips!). Is it as good as a high-end badger? No, but at 5% of the price… I still wonder how many taklons are harmed to make the brush 🙂
