Simpson Emperor 2, Soap Commander Love, iKon DLC slant with new Derby blade

leave a comment »

The experiment continues. This morning I tried a new Derby blade but same Wolfman handle as last time.

But first, the prep. I used a Simpson Emperor 2 Best brush, and though it is fine, I’m thinking I like the Emperor 3 a bit better, so the 2 may go to auction. Still, the lather was excellent and the rose fragrance of Soap Commander Love is excellent: very pure and not heavy. Rose is a classic men’s fragrance, in my mind somehow associated with the Cavaliers.

My tremor was quite noticeable this morning, and in some cases I supported my shaving hand with my other hand in an effort to reduce it. That was only partly successful and I did suffer one nick, though not a bad one, on the upper lip in the XTG pass. Still, the new blade did better, I think. Later this week I’ll keep the same blade and switch to the iKon SE handle and see whether that makes a difference.

A good splash of D.R. Harris Pink After Shave, also a rose fragrance, and I’m more or less ready for the week. I scored a package of lamb neck from the supermarket, and I’m looking forward to cooking that.
