Another pipe-tobacco shave

with 2 comments

Cavendish is a favorite — so much so that I bought it in the CK-6 formula, which was a treat this morning. That little Edwin Jagger synthetic is quite a nice little brush — closer to badger than are the Plissoft knots, with a nice feel on the face and excellent lathering efficiency.

Fine’s Marvel is quite a good razor, the head here mounted on a UFO bronze handle. Three passes, and then a splash of Cavendish aftershave, with its long-lasting fragrance.

After the update to Catalina yesterday, Photos is working again and I recovered most of the photo library from backup (and I will now be doing backups more regularly).
