The $20 Edwin Jagger with a stainless handle

SOTD 5 Nov 2015

An extremely nice shave today with a super-smooth result.

The Satin Tip synthetic easily made a fine lather from Meißner Tremonia’s Moroccan Rhassoul. I continue to wish that the Satin Tip loft was about 5mm greater, but I recognize that it does a fine job as is.

ItalianBarber.com now offers a really superb razor for the novice (and for more experienced shavers, for that matter): for $20, an Edwin Jagger/Mühle head on a stainless steel SE handle, which is the combination shown above. My SE handle is an iKon, and the handle Italian Barber is using is not identified as an iKon, but the two handles look much alike. I did three very comfortable passes and readily achieved a BBS result with no problems.

A good splash of Cavendish, a very nice aftershave from Phoenix Artisan Accoutrements, and I’m ready for a new day.
