The German 37 slant delivers a great shave
LA Shaving Soap Company makes excellent shaving soaps, and their Vanilla/Eucalyptus/Mint is a favorite. The menthol load is light, which I prefer, and the lather is really excellent, this morning worked up with the Plisson brush shown.
The RazoRock German 37 slant from Italian Barber is a bargain: $20 for the razor or $12 for the head alone. It’s a Merkur slant clone, and it delivers a really fine shave (for me, at any rate): totally BBS with no trace of a problem. I like the feel of the handle, as well. If you’re thinking about a slant and hesitating because of the cost, the German 37 is well worth considering. And if you have a three-piece razor, you can use your current handle with the German 37 head.
A good splash of Floris No. 89 aftershave to complete the task, and the day is well begun.
