Fine Classic, Martin de Candre, Maggard V3A, and New York aftershave

with 2 comments

The Fine Classic synthetic made a terrific lather from Martin de Candre shaving soap, and then the Maggard V3A (here on a UFO handle) provided its usual great shave. I’m going to add that to the list of recommended razors. The “A” is for “aggressive,” but that applies on to its efficiency. In feel, it is a very comfortable razor, though with some blade feel—but not uncomfortable or threatening. A splash of New York aftershave finished the job.

Yesterday I took a day off from the walk, but on Sunday the walk was 1:02:27; today, 1:02:06. So I’m still making progress. The walk is 3.6 miles, according to, and today I carefully carried my phone down so it would not record any steps (and thus also no distance) before setting out on the walk, and Pedometer++ also shows the distance as 3.6 miles. I think I may be able to get the time to under an hour. We’ll see if the new poles make a difference.

  1. I noticed this morning that my brush was loose in the handle. Who would you suggest for repair?

  2. When the knot came out of my synthetic from The Grooming Company, I used this silicone marine sealant and it worked quite well.
