Simpson Duke 3, The Dead Sea, ATT R1, and Barrister & Mann Classic

Yesterday’s Himalayan Heights included Himalayan salt as an ingredient, so that reminded me of the Dead Sea, a very nice shaving soap. As noted previously, this soap does not tolerate a wet brush, so after wetting the Duke 3 Best, I gave it three good shakes, which turned out to be a little too much. I dipped the tip of the brush into water and resumed loading and that worked well.

Once I had applied a layer of soap over all my beard, I ran a driblet of water into the center of the brush and immediately worked up a very nice lather—and I do like the fragrance of this soap.

I’ve not used my Above the Tie R1 for a while, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. In my list of favorite DE razors, I ended the list at $100, but if I had increased the limit to $200, the ATT R1 would definitely have a place on the list. Three comfortable passes without a problem produced a totally smooth result.

A good splash of Barrister & Mann Reserve Classic, and we’re already at the middle of the week.
