BBS with ATT R1 and Soap Commander

with one comment

SOTD 13 Nov 2014

Extremely good shave. Soap Commander—and I love the retro name and logo—lathered quite well, and I liked (but cannot describe) the fragrance. Mr Pomp (not the Frank Shaving knockoff) continues to be a favorite brush.

My ATT R1 with their handle of middle size did a fine job with a Personna Lab Blue blade. I really am finding that a good criterion for an “efficient” razor is that large swathes of your face is BBS after the second pass, so the final, ATG pass is more or less polishing and touch-up. This razor is efficient in that sense (for me: you may find that M1 or H1 works better for you), and it is also extremely comfortable, in a precise sort of way. A “no-slop” razor.

A dab of D.R. Harris After Shaving Milk finishes the shave. I can’t identify the fragrance, but I like it. (I saw one mention of it as being rose, but it sure doesn’t smell like rose to me.) UPDATE: I smelled it again. It’s rose. Duh.

Today I’m cooking Yucatán Pork Stew with Ancho Chiles and Lime Juice for dinner.

  1. The SC Purpose I have is definitely a bay rum scent.
