OneBlade Day Four, with I Coloniali and Barrister & Mann Reserve Classic

with one comment

Today’s shave was much like yesterday’s, though I did linger longer in the lathering, not only because it was enjoyable (with RazoRock’s barrel silvertip and I Coloniali’s very nice lather) but also to ensure the stubble was properly prepared for the OneBlade.

Three passes produced a smooth finish. Again, the blade didn’t exactly glide through the stubble—I could distinctly feel the cutting—but it did the job with no problem and not much additional attention. Four days on a blade brings the annual cost of blades below $100, to $91.25 ($7.60/month). OTOH, the shave is not so pleasurable as with a new blade (DE or OneBlade).

Sharpologist has an excellent (and thorough) article on using GEM blades in the OneBlade, something that apparently OneBlade tried strongly to discourage by some design changes for version 2 (the current version).

A splash of Barrister & Mann’s Reserve Classic, and I’m ready for the weekend, when I’ll continue to practice social isolation…
