Good shave with 34G and the return of the Ecotools brush

SOTD 21 Aug 2015

I haven’t used the Ecotools brush for quite a while, but I got a question about it recently and brought it out. I set it aside when the Omega S-Series synthetic brushes appeared: those are around the same price point and better, on the whole, as a shaving brush. But the Ecotools is a fun little brush to use.

My Otoko Organics shaving soap is on its last legs—just a rim of soap hugging the corner around the bottom—but I have a full tub as back-up. And once again I enjoyed the lather.

The Merkur 34G gave an okay shave, but I think the blade in it was due for a change. (I did change the blade following the shave.) I think the 34C (the chrome version) still appeals to many novices, though I find that it is outclassed by the Edwin Jagger (and Mühle R89) and the Parker. Still: not a bad shave at all.

A splash of Alpa 378, and we are rising to the weekend.
