Later On

A blog written for those whose interests more or less match mine.

The Holy Black’s SR-71 slant is again available, so I’m using mine this morning

The brush is the RazoRock artificial badger, though on the face it has no badger feel. It is nevertheless an excellent synthetic: fine handle, nice feel, stellar performance. It easily developed an excellent lather from Meißner Tremonia’s Woody Almond shaving paste, which has an intoxicating fragrance. I did end up adding more water as I worked the lather into the stubble, but altogether a fine lather.

I did my usual three-pass shave with no problems and achieved a BBS result. I discovered that if I start my kitchen count-down timer without entering a time, it is in effect and count-up timer, and I used it this morning to time my shave. (It’s much easier and more reliable than peering at my wristwatch and remembering the time I began.) Total time for today’s shave—done without haste, taking my time to enjoy it and do a good job—was 5 minutes 15 seconds, and that included a little extra time spent lathering prior to the first pass.

A good splash of Paul Sebastian, and we’re into the week.
