BBS with the Wilkinson “Sticky”

SOTD 11 Oct 2013

Another great shave—no wonder I like this stuff.

I used the Omega boar brush shown—similar to the Pro 48, but with a dyed stripe. I got several of the Omega striped boars after reading that they break in faster. I do find that they are sooner softer—perhaps something in the dying treatment softens the bristles? At any rate, a good change of pace. The dye in the stripe will slightly discolor the first 2-3 lathers, but then that stops and the brush really does feel good.

It made a terrific lather from the HTGAM shaving soap, which I continue to like a lot. The Wilkinson “Sticky” (smooth handle, not slippery, thus the name) held a previously used Feather blade and worked quite well: no nicks, no burn, and BBS result.

A good splash of Creed’s Green Irish Tweed and the week begins to draw to a close. I do miss The Wife, who is now abroad on vacation.

Tonight: the gold nugget squash.
