A military-themed shave — and an excellent one

The Yaqi camouflage-handle brush came up in my natural-bristle-brush trek, so I used the matching razor, a double open-comb model, also from Yaqi, and looked for a military shaving soap and aftershave. Given that Achilles was greatest warrior of the Trojan war, the pictured items were the obvious choice.

The soap, since I like it, is getting low, with a nickel-sized spot in the center showing the bottom of the tub. The lather from this soap is always good — good fragrance, good consistency, excellent post-shave feel of the skin. The ingredients are interesting and fulfill their promise. I am, in fact, a big fan of Van Yulay shaving soaps in general.

Three passes with the razor left my face perfectly smooth. This razor is definitely on my list of all-time favorites. The same head is provided on various handles and in various finishes. I have two, and I think I’ll use the other tomorrow.

A good splash of the aftershave, and the week is well launched.
