Fine lather, fine shave

SOTD 8 May 2014

Very good shave today. The Plisson Chinese Grey is a pure badger, by the common reckoning, but is quite comfortable and not all prickly, though it does feel coarser on the face than a silvertip. But it’s a pleasant coarseness and it’s an excellent brush that had no trouble at all in getting a great lather from D.R. Harris’s Arlington shaving soap.

The Standard razor did its usual excellent job. I thought I had paid around $90 for the razor, but I see now that it’s listed at $70 (and out of stock for now).

A good splash of Guerlain’s Vol de Nuit, and I’m ready for the day—and also the nuit, I presume.
