Barrister & Mann Cologne Russe and RazoRock’s German 37 slant
I really like that RazoRock Italian Flag shaving brush: the 24mm knot is about as large as I like, but I do like it. It’s a soft, fairly dense brush, and at $13 it’s a bargain. The handle is quite comfortable as well.
Cologne Russe is an excellent fragrance and an excellent soap. No problem at all in getting a fine lather, and the RazoRock German 37 slant, a three-piece razor, did a superb job: very smooth, no problems, BBS result. I have been overlooking this razor, but for $20 for a complete razor, it’s a great bargain. If you’ve not tried a slant, this would be a good place to start. Two words: light pressure.
A final rinse, dry, and a good splash of Cologne Russe to start the day.
