Simpson Duke 3, Strop Shoppe Russian Tea, and the Rockwell R4

The Simpson Duke 3 Best is a fine little brush, and I got a particularly nice and spicy-fragrant lather from Strop Shoppee’s Russian Tea.

An adjustable razor, whether the usual version with a dial that changes the blade gap or one that (like the Rockwell 6S) that has a selection of baseplates with different bladeo gaps, allows for a gradual change in preference. As I’ve noted, I used the Fat Boy at “3” for months, then went to “4” for a few months, and currently have settled on “5.” And with the Rockwell, I’ve mainly used R3 but have been hankering for a bit more, so I went with R4, which will be my regular choice for the next while, until my preferences change again.

With the R4, the shave was easy, close, and comfortable, and the BBS result was no surprise. A good splash of Fine’s L’Orange Noir finished the job and left me poised for the weekend.
