Absolutely perfect shave

STOD 14 Oct 2013

Of course, the odds favored this shave: a two-day stubble, a slant, and lots of previous practice. Good products, too: my Omega boar brush worked up a fine lather from Kell’s Original English Rose. You can sort of make out what I assume is a rose petal embedded in the soap. I like the soap, but I think he’d be well advised to move to a container of larger diameter: that would make loading the brush much easier.

Three very easy and light passes with the Eros Slant, still with the Gillette 7 O’Clock Super Platinum blade I started with. Absolutely perfect BBS—seldom if ever a smoother face—and no trace of nick or burn. This is one I keep feeling.

A nice splash of Saint Charles Shave Bulgarian Rose, and the week begins—with no mail delivery and a debt default in the offing.
