Perfect BBS with Feather AS-D2 and Tabac

with one comment

SOTD 30 Dec 2014

Absolutely fantastic shave this morning—and I see in the photo that I matched the Tabac color scheme with the brush I chose.

The Vie-Long horsehair brushes are terrific; I don’t especially like their horse+badger brushes, though: somehow too dense. But this is a lovely brush. I wet the knot well under the hot-water tap before my shower, as I do with all boar and horsehair brushes.

On Wicked_Edge yesterday a guy was wondering how to use a shave stick. I provided some guidance and realized that I’ve not used a shave stick myself for a while. Since I do enjoy them, I thought I’d switch over for a while. The Tabac stick is very nice indeed, and has a fine fragrance.

I used a dampish brush to work up the lather, adding a driblet of water to the brush as needed. The lather springs up abundantly, and the AS-D2 with a Feather blade is a fine combination: no resistance felt, very comfortable on the face, and BBS three passes later.

A good splash of Tabac, and we draw to the close of another year.
