The Dead Sea and the S1

That’s a pretty sharp image for a 1/2 second exposure — thanks Craig B for the tip on using the timer.

I went aggressively after the smooth supple soft shave today, with (a) The Dead Sea, which seems to promote such results, (b) a slant razor, in this case Above the Tie’s S1, and (c) Krampert’s Finest Acadian Spice Bay Rum, an unusually moisturizing splash.

The Plisson synthetic did a fine job — I know now to use a brush that’s merely damp when loading with The Dead Sea — and the lather was exceptionally good. I do like the fragrance: lemon, rosemary, cannabis, saffron, and sandalwood.

Three very comfortable passes and then a splash of Krampert’s — and I was quite close to the idea result. A very fine shave, though not so stellar smooth as the one I’m seeking.

So it goes. The journey continues.
