Wolfman, Copper Hat, and shave 12 with Meißner Tremonia sample

SOTD 16 Sept 2015

Still working on using up the Meißner Tremonia sample. Today’s shave is the 12th from the sample. The Copper Hat brush did a wonderful job—and it is a wonderful brush. The handle design makes for excellent comfort and the knot is superb.

I used the asymmetric Wolfman—bar guard on one side, open comb on the other. (It occurs to me that “open comb” is redundant. Combs naturally have teeth with open spaces between the teeth: that’s what makes it a comb rather than, say, a stick.) The two sides have a slightly different feel but the same level of efficiency, so I switch between the sides as I would with a normal razor. The final result was a beautiful BBS, with no problems or nicks.

I finished with a splash of Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner (“toner” means “no alcohol” in Thayer-speak; “astringent” means 10% alcohol).

Great shave, and it’s good to be back. Slept like a rock.
