Dapper Dragon and Chiseled Face meet the Wilkinson Sticky

SOTD 13 Mov 2015

A very fine shave today. I really like my Chiseled Twilight wood shaving brush, apparently no longer available, though he has a nifty  brush that puts the same knot in an aluminum handle. The brush instantly made a fine lather from Dapper Dragon’s Jasmine & Vanilla shaving soap, and I set to work with the Wilkinson Sticky, a razor that won a number of design awards in the 1960s.

Three passes to a very smooth face. This is another razor often described as “mild,” accurately referring to its comfort on the face but misleading insofar as efficiency is concerned: with a sharp blade (and, of course, good prep and good technique), the razor is highly efficient at transforming a rough face to a smooth one.

A splash of Havana Cognac from Ginger’s Garden and I’m good to go.
