Great shave with the Fatip Testina Gentile and Tcheon Fung Sing
An all-Italian shave today. My Omega 21762 made a very fine lather from Tcheon Fung Sing Tobacco Verde shaving soap. The soap loaded easily—no need to add water during loading—and then I use palm lathering to build the lather, working in a fair amount of water, little by little, as I brushed my palm. The Omega 21762 is a very soft brush and feels quite gentle on the face, but it makes lather just fine.
I was disappointed in my last Fatip razor—too harsh—but a commenter suggester that I give the Fatip Testina Gentile a try, saying it was much more comfortable. He was right: this razor is much more to my taste, and I easily got a trouble-free BBS result. The razor is made of brass, and in this version chrome plated. (Other finishes are available.) A totally satisfactory little razor.
A good splash of Floïd, and the day looks brighter.
