Copper Hat Brush, Dead Sea soap, Merkur bakelite slant, and Geo. F. Trumper Spanish Leather
Dead Sea is a very fine soap that takes very little water. Today I was so careful in shaking out the brush that I ended up having to add a little water during loading. The resulting lather was excellent, and I do like the fragrance of this soap—pronounced, but not strong. The Copper Hat brush with a Delrin® handle is very nice indeed, plus it’s a memento of a trip to Victoria.
My vintage white bakelite slant did a superb job—totally smooth, no nicks—but based on feel, I did replace the blade following the shave. There was no actual tugging, but the action was not quite so smooth as it has been.
A good splash of Geo. F. Trumper Spanish Leather aftershave, and the week begins.
