A well-prepared brush and another Yaqi razor

leave a comment »

This 24mm Yaqi badger brush has a fairly dense but still soft knot, and yesterday I made three lathers with it: loading the brush, working up a lather in my palm, rinsing the brush completely, and then repeating that twice more. Today, there was not the slightest sign of a lather fade during the course of the shave, so I would say the brush is now fully broken in.

Stubble Trubble’s Up & Adam is a favorite, and I’m sorry the soap is no onger made. It has a wonderful fragrance and makes a fine lather, and this Yaqi razor, an Edwin Jagger clone, did a very nice job indeed.

A rinse, dry, and splash of Phoenix Artisan’s Spring-Heeled Jack, and the day begins.
