Great lather, good shave

SOTD 31 Jan 2013

The lather was fantastic—and, strangely, it seemed to get better with each pass. A perfect lather—and, as a matter of curiosity, tomorrow I’m going to use an Art of Shaving tallow-based soap (the old formulation) to compare. Based on price, the AoS soap’s lather should be 5 times as good, but I suspect that it will not turn out that way. We’ll see tomorrow.

Despite a great lather—and a great razor, a Gillette Diplomat (the glad-plated version of the Gillette President)—the shave was but good. Okay, but not the BBS I got yesterday. The reason, I believe, is that the Swedish Gillette blade was well past its prime, and it has now been replaced so the next shave should be awesome once more, provided the stars align.

Three passes, a final rinse, and then a good splash of Krampert’s Finest Bay Rum, which has a very pleasing aftereffect: it seems to be moisturizing.

And now, on to today.
