BBS with British Gillette

with one comment

SOTD 4 Mar 2015

Extremely good shave today. With my Brushguy.com brush, I got an immediate good lather from Tcheon Fung Sing’s Tobacco Verde shaving soap. Although the stubby dense knot has somewhat limited capacity and lacks the soft feel of a fluffier knot, it still held plenty for a three-pass shave.

The British Gillette Aristocrat (one of many models) I came across when digging out my GEM razors. I’m not sure how it ended up in the storage box, but it’s out now. I like the TTO open-comb design, and with a Shark Chrome blade it easily produced a nick-free BBS result. I’m thinking this one might deserve a replating.

A good splash of Alt-Innsbruck aftershave to carry forward the tobacco theme. Alt-Innsbruck has a touch of menthol, noticeable but restrained.

Altogether, a fine start.
