A blog written for those whose interests more or less match mine.

Omega 20102, Mickey Lee’s Drunken Goat, the Baili BR171, and Lenthéric’s Tweed

with 2 comments

The Omega 20102 shown is well broken in at this point and is a very nice brush, smaller than the Omega Pro 48 (10048) but the knot still ample in size. It worked up a fine lather from Mickey Lee Soapworks Drunken Goat, which has a better beer fragrance than Meißner Tremonia’s Black Beer No. 1, in which the rosemary and lemongrass move it somewhat off the beer mark. The Drunken Goat’s fragrance is described as “A deep rich aroma, often described as a Stout infused cookie. The Drunken Goat captures notes of chocolate, oats, molasses and chestnut.” The ingredients:

Stearic Acid, Tallow,Guinness Extra Stout, Goat Milk, Coconut Oil, Potassium Hydroxide, Kokum Butter, Sodium Hydroxide, Castor Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Lanolin, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Fragrance and Essential Oils

The lather was really excellent this morning, and I have to say that the Baili BR171 is a keeper. Amazing that it costs just $7 (from Italian Barber, where it’s sold as the RazoRock DE1). It can also be found on eBay and from other vendors and may have different names—Baili itself calls it the Victor—but the model number will identify it. (The gold version is BR173.)

A little splash of Lenthéric Tweed, and the weekend is in sight.

  1. Used the Wee Scott this morning for the first time. I am amazed with the performance, when I first looked at the brush I did not believe that it would work! A little different piece of equipment to have in the rotation.

  2. And obviously the ideal brush for the backpacker. 🙂
