Plisson, Phoenix Artisan Solstice, Maggard V2OC, and Stirling Executive Man

The Plisson synthetic brush is excellent, and it is very like other “Plissoft” knots—no surprise, since it was their model. It easily got a good lather from Phoenix Artisan’s Solstice shaving soap, whose fragrance appeals to me a lot: Sage, Sweetgrass, Cedar, Rose Absolute, and Benzoin Resin.

The Maggard V2 open-comb head is a clone of the Parker 24C/26C head, but the MR7 handle from Maggard is much better than the Parker handles: the MR7 is stainless steel and crisply knurled. The feel and performance is much the same, as is the price: ≈$30.

Three passes, no nicks, and BBS result, to which I applied a good splash of Stirling’s Executive Man. And then I start the day.

  1. That head gives me a better result with a shaving gel than I can ever get with any soap or cream. I honestly do not undertand why. That isn’t the case with any other razor I’ve ever used.

  2. Interesting. I haven’t tried with a gel, but so far the results with soap are good.
