Nuávia with the Omega 21762 and the iKon S3S

Nuávia is another soap that, like Tcheon Fung Sing, has a simple formula but works quite well (and like TFS, it hails from Italy). The Omega 21762 is wonderfully soft for a boar brush—close to badger—but of course some like a stiffer, scrubbier brush, and this is not that. I like it a lot, but the action and feel don’t match other boars (and nevertheless it does an excellent job).

Well-lathered, I picked up the S3S. It does a fine shave, and I easily got a smooth and trouble-free result. The mass of the head seems to help in shaving with a conventional razor, pushing the edge of the blade efficiently through it’s straight-on chop.

A good splash of Phoenix Artisan Sandalwood, which I like, and the weekend is on the horizon.
