Omega Pro 48 with Tcheon Fung Sing and the Baili BR171

leave a comment »

Excellent lather, as is common with Tcheon Fung Sing. Interestingly, I did not have to add any water, although I was loading a very large knot. Partly, I think, this is because my Omega Pro 48 (10048) is very well broken in, plus the length of the bristles makes them very flexible, so they worked the surface of the soap better. Also, I did not shake it quite so dry as I did with yesterday’s brush. And, of course, soaps do differ.

At any rate, the knot performed admirably. I do not find this brush too large for face lathering, and I enjoyed the feel. Once well lathered, I picked up the Baili BR171, a really fine razor (for $6!) and did an extremely comfortable three-pass shave, once more leaving a totally smooth result. No nicks, just comfort. This razor feels good in the hand: some heft and a nice handle.

A splash of RazoRock’s Zi’ Peppino finished the job.
