Simpson Case, Stirling Executive Man, and the Rockwell 6S R3

leave a comment »

I’m on a small-brush kick, so the Simpson Case (one-time Wee Scot 3) was selected this morning. It worked up a fine lather quite easily for my sample-puck construction of 3/4 Executive man, 1/4 Sharp-Dressed Man. As is common with Stirling soaps, I had to add a little water as I loaded.

The Rockwell 6S remains a favorite razor. I have been using R4, but this morning I backed off to R3, and I admired again the design that makes it easy to remove and replace the baseplate while the blade stays securely in the cap.

Three passes, totally smooth, no problems, and a good splash of Executive Man aftershave finished the week.

I changed my email address—the local ISP I have used for almost 30 years has suffered a severe decline in quality of service—so that means a week or two of updating my email on various sites until I pull the plug. plus figuring out a few oddities. (For some reason, mail that arrives in my Apple Mail from Gmail ends up both in the Inbox folder and in the Archive folder. Eventually I’ll get that sorted.)
