Barrister & Mann shave soap
I just received my initial order of Barrister & Mann shaving soap. Though a warning that the soap requires more water than one might expect, I found that for me my regular lathering method worked just fine—no added water needed, certainly not to the degree that (e.g.) Mike’s Natural requires.
My Mühle silverfiber shaving brush—a really good synthetic, comparable to good silvertip badger—worked up an excellent lather quickly. Three passes with the ARC Weber holding an Astra Keramik Platinum blade, a good splash of Klar Seifen Klassik aftershave, and the day begins.
