Rotbart up for auction, and description of the morning shave
The Rotbart shown in the photo has gone to eBay. It’s what is commonly called an aggressive razor: highly efficient but requiring good technique for a comfortable shave. It’s in good condition and guys with a thick beard would probably like it.
No photo of the morning shave. For reasons unknown to me, the focus was totally off (though the photo above, taken at the same time, is in good focus).
The brush was the RazoRock synthetic with the colors of the Italian flag and the soap was Chiseled Face’s Midnight Stag. I used the RazoRock Old Type again. That’s a hefty little razor with a nice feel in the hand, and it’s both comfortable and efficient (and, IMO, a great bargain at $15). Three passes to an absolute BBS face, to which I applied a good splash of Saint Charles Shave’s Very V aftershave.
Altogether a great shave. The RazoRock Old Style is now my first recommendation for a razor for a DE novice, and I think some of you more experienced shavers would enjoy it as well.
