Perfect shave from Tech Gillette wearing a Feather blade

with 2 comments

SOTD 26 Nov 2014

A really terrific shave today. The Simpson Persian Jar made an instant good lather from the Los Angles Shaving Soap Company’s shaving soap. I got this one from, and I understand that LASSC uses this wider-mouth tub for Maggard—and I do like the wider mouth, as it helps in the loading.

And, you’ll note, the soap comes to the brim of the tub. That turns out not to be a problem for my loading technique—one dripping wet brush, then one shake of the brush and start loading—but some do prefer empty space at the top of the container. I suppose if I keep using it, I’ll soon have some empty space there.

The Tech with a Feather blade is a very fine razor indeed. No wonder Gillette made millions of them. Three passes, BBS result, no trace of a nick.

A good splash of Fine’s American Blend, and we get ready for the holiday.
