Simpson Persian Jar 2 Super, Dapper Doc CK-6, and the Fendrihan Mk II

with 3 comments

Another excellent badger brush, more or less on a part with the Rooney Super Silvertip from yesterday. CK-6 soaps provide really superb lather and I do like the fragrance of Dapper Doc’s Old Time Lilac & Fig.

Three passes with the Fendrihand Mk II left my face perfectly smooth, and a good splash of the aftershave carried the fragrance forward.

Shaving should always be a pleasure, never a chore.

  1. Michael, I find that these soaps from Phonix are excellent, I still have one of the original HTGAM large tin soaps, Bay Rum flavour.I would be interested to know if you can tell any difference between the CK6 range and their “ordinary” ones?

  2. Hi Michael –

    I just became aware of Cooper & French, an artisan soap maker based in Minneapolis. Do you know of their products?

  3. @ tony: For me, the CK-6 soaps are distinctly better, through the regular formula is quite good. I think the current regular formula is better than his original formula, and the CK-6 is a step up from that.

    @ Craig: I got some of the very first Cooper & French, which was just okay, but I heard that they’ve spiffed up the formula for their current offerings, and I’ve not tried those. Worth a try. I’ll take a look to see whether I still have my tub of C&F.
