Antica Barbiera Colla and the RazoRock Mentor (I think)

leave a comment »

Antica Barbiera Colla is a very nice shaving soap indeed, with a clean and light almond fragrance. The lather is very high quality, make this morning with a Maggard 24mm synthetic brush.

I’m pretty sure that razor shown is the RazoRock Mentor, and it corresponds in feel and performance to the Maggard V3A. Both razors provide a lot of blade feel and are very efficient, but are also reasonably comfortable. This (and the V3A) would work well with dense, thick beards (after good prep, always important but particularly for thick, tough beards).

Three passes left my face totally smooth, and a very small, very thin (almost transparent) dot of Antica Barbiera Colla’s aftershave balm made a fine finish. I like this balm more the less of it I use in an application—”less is more,” as people like to say.

A fine shave to start the day.
