Wee Scot, Klar Seifen, iKon OC, and Cavendish

with 3 comments

With this shave I finally found the iKon open-comb that impressed me with its comfort as well as its efficiency. I have three different iKon razors that have a comb guard: the Shavecraft Short Comb; a stainless with two baseplates, comb guard on one, bar guard on the other; and and older stainless with a comb guard.

I started with prep, as is my custom, using the Wee Scot and getting an extremely good lather from the small tub of Klar Seifen. As soon as I started shaving with this razor, I recognized it as the one I had used before. (I could have looked back through my SOTD posts, but that seemed cheating.) It is noticeably more comfortable than the Short Comb, which itself isn’t bad, and it is also quite efficient.

After three passes, I had a perfectly smooth face with no problems (i.e., no nicks), and a splash of Cavendish set me up for the day—a busy day, in fact. Probably little blogging today.

  1. I have the stainless DeLuxe open comb and I love it but I’m not sure it’s one of your OCs

  2. Thank you another great suggestion, the Maggard “stubby” handle. I really like the feel with my 102.

  3. You’re welcome, and I’m delighted to hear that it works well for you. Very solid. I like Maggard handles so far.
