Testing the 37C v. the 34C, with Bee Witched

SOTD 30 Nov 2015

Extremely smooth result today: the two-day-stubble effect, in part.

I really like Mickey Lee’s Bee Witched a lot and was recommending it until I learned it was a limited edition rather than regular stock. It has a fine fragrance and makes a terrific lather quite easily. Today I just Mr Pomp, the brush shown, and the lather was as good as ever.

I’m still comparing slants v. regular razors in the same shave, using razors with a similar format. This morning I picked the Merkur fraternal twins, 34G and 37G. I used both in each of the first two passes. I started by putting a brand new Gillette Silver Blue blade in each razor so I could test the razors and not the blade. (The Gillette Silver Blues, I’m beginning to think, should be included in every sampler pack.)

I did find that, for me, the 37G glided through the stubble a little more easily. The effect would doubtless be more noticeable for those whose beards are thicker and tougher and harder to cut, but I could detect it. YMMV, of course, depending on your beard.

I used the slant only in the final pass, since I’ve found that, for me, a slant more easily results in a BBS result. And indeed the final result was BBS.

This is the end of the Alt-Innsbruck: one final splash, and the bottle heads for recycling.

A very nice shave, in terms of both experience and result. A fine way to start the week.
