Mühle synthetic and Stubble Trubble Up and Adam, Stirling Slant and Chiseled Face Easy Street
The Monday shave is always good. This Mühle synthetic from a few years back was marketed as “synthetic badger,” and it does have more texture than the later Plissoft-style synthetics. It does a fine job, and I rather like the Cosmo-style handle (“Cosmo” being the name Mühle gave to that design).
Up and Adam remains a great fragrance, and Stubble Trubble’s lather is very good. One way that a great fragrance is functional is that it encourages one to spend a bit more time lathering, and that’s all to the good in terms of prep.
Stirling’s slant, which seems to be available sporadically, but right now is not one of those times. It is a Merkur-slant clone and is very nicely made, with a crisp finish on the handle. Three passes resulted in a BBS face with nary a nick.
A splash of Easy Street, and the week is now underway.
