Savannah Sunrise with the Above the Tie R1 and a splash of Alpa 378

SOTD 2016-08-12

The brush is a 24mm Maggard synthetic, and it made an extremely good lather from Dr. Jon’s Handcrafted Savannah Sunrise shaving soap, which I picked for the honeysuckle not in its fragrance. Dr. Jon describes the fragrance as “Orange Blossom, Peach, Gardenia, Jasmine, and Honeysuckle.” Like all Dr. Jon soaps, this one is vegan. And again: the lather was superb.

The ATT R1 today seemed a little rough and in fact I got a couple of inexplicable small nicks. I’m sure it’s just that the blade has expired, so following the shave I replaced it. The final result was still quite good.

A good splash of Alpa 378 finished the shave. A redditor posted in Wicked Edge that he had contacted the company for an explanation of “378.” Just as with 4711 and Floris No. 89, the number is the house number of the company headquarters.
