iKon open-comb and Phoenix Artisan Honeysuckle soap with WSP Baroness

with 2 comments

Instant great lather from Phoenix Artisan’s Honeysuckle shaving soap—great in fragrance, great in consistency. The Baroness is a very nice little brush with a knot that, though full, is not dense: very good capacity and very nice action.

I used the iKon open-comb with the bar alignment, and again it struck me as slightly less comfortable than the iKon Shavecraft short-comb. Both are excellent in terms of efficiency, and certainly I found the razor today comfortable and not inclined to nick (and it didn’t), but the Shavecraft short-comb is just a bit more comfortable and feels smoother on the face. Next step is to change the baseplate and try the bar-guard baseplate.

Three passes, a fine result, and a splash of Phoenix Artisan Cavendish to get me through the day.

  1. Try a Derby with your OC iKon, it decreases the blade feel

  2. I’ll give that a go. Tomorrow same blade with bar guard (so I can compare it to the comb guard) and Saturday the OC baseplate with a derby.
