BBS with ATT

SOTD 25 Nov 2014

A very nice shave indeed—D.R. Harris is a great shaving soap, and the Arlington shown is quite nice. As shown in the photo, the soap (unlike Martin de Candre, for example) does not come up to the very brim of the bowl: there’s a 1/4″ space above the soap, with the total height of the bowl at 1 1/4″. So there is a bit of a rim for loading the brush. I note again that I now seem to automatically give the dripping-wet brush a shake before starting the loading, and there is no spillage or excess water.

Morris & Forndran brushes are very nice indeed, and this one loaded readily. I did add a good driblet of water in the process of working the lather up on my beard, and the lather was excellent.

Three passes with the Above the Tie razor, using the R1 baseplate and a Personna Lab Blue blade, and the result was BBS with one tiny nick under the chin that did not require a styptic.

A good splash of Arlington aftershave and we move closer to the holiday.
