I deem the brush now broken in

with 4 comments

Today the brush acted like a regular silvertip badger brush, making an excellent lather (ably assisted Phoenix Artisan’s Dapper Doc in the CK-6 formulation). This brush has a somewhat coarser feel on the face than some of my other silvertips — no hooked tips on this one — but it is a pleasant feel and a firm brush. I feel now I can move on to other brushes.

I do like the Lilack & Fig fragrance of Dapper Doc’s, and CK-6 lather is exception. The Fatip Testina Gentile glided through the stubble without incident and left my face particularly smooth, ready for a splash of the matching aftershave. A good start to a new day.

  1. Good morning!! Hope you are doing great! Have you tried the new 1901 Gillette DE razor? I love it. I truly think it’s the best Double edge razor I have ever used. They got the head geometry absolutely perfect. I am interested in your opinion of it. Thanks and be well, Giovanni Abrate

  2. I have tried the relatively new Gillette Heritage, but I could not find the 1901 with a search. Do you have a link?

  4. Ah. has it as well. I’ll give a try at some point. Right now I have a couple of other razors coming. But I’ve bookmarked it.
