The morning shave, with turmeric

with one comment

SOTD 30 May 2013

I’ve used Vicco before, and this time instead of smearing a little on my beard (the shaving cream is a little runny), I squirted a little onto the knot of my (wet and shaken) Rooney Style 1, Size 1 Super Silvertip. I got a good lather, albeit a little too foamy. Turmeric (or some other ingredient) makes the skin feel refreshed and tingling as you shave—not the effect of menthol, but in that ballpark. The tube is odd: about the diameter of a travel tube of toothpaste, but longer.

The iKon holds a Personna 74 tungsten-steel blade, and I got an excellent shave. This iKon is Model No. 3, and it’s still one of my favorite razors: comfortable and efficient.

With a turmeric shave, I am almost forced to use a spice aftershave, and it seemed a good time to hit the Royall Spyce again.
