Simpson Duke 3 Best, Tallow + Steel Dark, and the RazoRock German 37

with 2 comments

A pleasant night’s sleep, a pleasant shave, and a pleasant walk: I feel like it’s going to be a good day. The Duke did a good job on Tallow + Steel’s Dark shaving soap. As you can see from the label, the fragrance profile is unusual—and the fragrance is intriguing. The word hidden by the razor’s handle is “benzoin.”

The German 37 is an excellent slant—it has a significant advantage over the Merkur 37 on which it was modeled in that the German 37 is a three-piece design, so you can (a) swap handles and (b) buy the head by itself if you want. It’s also at least as comfortable and efficient as the Merkur 37, and may even be a bit better.

Three passes to a smooth finish, a splash of Tallow + Steel Dark aftershave, and then the walk. Today it was 62 minutes and I wasn’t really pushing myself. Great way to start the day.

  2. I’m hoping that this week the new Exel walking poles will be posted to the Exel UK website, from which I will order a pair. They were shipped from Finland two days ago…
