Shaving with under-appreciated gem, the iKon Shavecraft #101
And I have to say that Semogue boar brushes seem over-appreciated to me: I’ve never understood their appeal. The Semogue Owners Club shown is okay, but truthfully I find my Omega boar brushes perform better. Still, that’s shaving: what works for one may not work for another.
I did get a good lather from Van Yulay’s Achilles, which has a fragrance I enjoy and, even with the Semogue, a terrific lather.
The iKon Shavecraft #101 doesn’t get much discussion, but it’s a wonderful razor IMO: extremely comfortable and extremely efficient. Three passes were plenty to produce a BBS result.
A good splash of Bathhouse aftershave (no longer available, I fear), and I am about to scurry around the apartment and ready it for the cleaning ladies.
