Tobacco theme

leave a comment »

The always-pleasurable Monday morning shave took a tobacco turn today. Wholly Kaw’s Merchant of Tobacco is a mighty fine soap. Its fragrance is that of a pipe tobacco, and the fragrance, though present, is not what I would call assertive: light but noticeable. The soap seems harder than some soaps — longer curing? — but lathered up handsomely. It’s a thirsty soap despite having no clay in its composition —  I added a little water three times during the loading.

The Rooney Style 2, once loaded, made a fine lather, and of course this stainless iKon slant did a superb job. It is definitely one of my favorite razors and even favorite slants.

Three passes later a totally smooth face emerged from the stubble, and a splash of Cavendish finished the shave. Cavendish, another pipe-tobacco fragrance, is much more present than that of the soap.

And now for a good week, eh?
