The redoubtable iKon 101 with i Coloniali shaving soap and Chatillon Lux aftershave

leave a comment »

Mr Pomp did a good job with i Coloniali’s mango-butter shaving soap, which comes in a terra cotta bowl. This soap is one for which it’s good to add a little water during loading.

The iKon 101 is an underappreciated gem of a razor, very comfortable and very efficient. Three passes gave me a BBS result, though some blade-buffing was required. I think iit’s time to replace the blade.

Chatillon Lux aftershaves are quite nice. Today I used Gratiot League Square Aftershave: tobacco, leather, rose, clove, nutmeg, sandalwood, vetiver, vanilla, musk, bergamot, and amber are the fragrance notes. Ingredients: Denatured alcohol, chamomile extract, calendula extract, witch hazel, aloe vera, cat’s claw bark extract, vegetable glycerin, menthol and fragrance.

A fine mid-week shave.
