BBS with ease (and Krona, Feather, TOBS, and Simpson)

SOTD 31 Dec 2013

Absolutely terrific shave to end the year: smooth and with no problems at all.

My Simpson Chubby Best was extremely pleasant and comfortable today. If I hadn’t covered the writing on the handle with the head of the Schick Krona, you would see that it is a Best. I did try a Super, but the knot of the Super was too dense to be comfortable and wouldn’t yield the lather. For me, the Best was better.

The lather from my TOBS Lavender was excellent, and with a Feather blade the Krona did a very fine job. With a duller blade, the razor is not so efficient, but with a Feather, the stubble was wiped away easily—and with great comfort.

A splash of Royall Vetiver, and the last day of the year starts to fall. I’ll be going out to buy black-eyed peas for tomorrow.

  1. I also find that the Krona does better with a sharper blade. The Rapira Platinum with the Krona is the best combo that I’ve tried so far.
