German 37 and 37G compared in a Bay Rum shave
This continues the German 37 review started in my previous SOTD post.
The Kent Infinity synthetic brush shown looks a little odd and feel (when dry) somewhat springy, but when it’s in use, it feels fine: a terrific little brush that made a terrific lather from Meißner Tremonia’s Natural Bay Rum, a very satisfying soap typical of the MT line.
I alternated the Merkur 37G and the RazoRock German 37, and really they shave very much alike. The German 37 initially seemed slightly less comfortable, but as I eased up on the pressure and paid closer attention to angle, the two came out much the same in terms of feel and performance—and I did get a great shave: BBS result, no problems at all. (I used the Geerman 37 for the chin and upper lip, and today it was smooth sailing all the way: W, X, and A TG.
A good splash of TOBS Bay Rum aftershave, and the week begins on a very nice note.
