Cologne Russe and the Standard

with one comment

SOTD 2016-12-15

An easily created and creamy lather with a wonderful fragrance: that’s what you get with Barrister & Mann’s Cologne Russe.

The Standard head is here used on a Wolfman stainless-steel handle, and it did a very fine job: BBS in three passes, but with a little tugging, so I replaced the blade (a Personna Lab Blue) at the end of the shave.

A splash of Cologne Russe aftershave, and the day is off to a fine start, though cloudy and looking like rain (also fine, given our drought).

  1. i acquired The Standard Razor not long ago. I shaved with it yesterday with a Dollar General Vietnamese Blade, but I think that I’ll try a Personna Red next time. It has a medium blade gap which, in use, reminds me a lot of my ATT R1. I do enjoy lightweight razors.
