No lather problem today, and a superb shave
Today I used a horsehair shaving brush with Dickens shaving soap by Barrister & Mann. No problem in getting three good passes of lather from the fully loaded brush. The shave itself was extremely good: the Progress left my face BBS after three passes. I should add that I state when my shave is BBS because I think novices will be interested to know that a BBS result is actually pretty common after several years of practice and experience. By that time you’ve found the brands of blade that work best for you, your prep and technique are polished, and a really fine shave is pretty much routine.
A good splash of TOBS No. 74 aftershave, and the day begins.
