Warm Woods and the Fatip Testina Gentile

with 5 comments

Warm Woods has a pleasant fragrance and a fine lather, thanks in part to the Yaqi 22mm synthetic brush shown. Three passes with my Fatip Testina Gentile finished the job, though I think it’s probably time to change the blade since I had to work a bit to get a smooth result. A splash of Saint Charles Shave’s Woods (presumably also warm, if not aflame, it being summer), and the weekend begins.

  1. How does the ‘Fatip Testina Gentile’ compare to other Fatip razors?

  2. I have only used the Fatip Grande, which was uncomfortable though efficient. The Testina Gentile, as the name indicated, very comfortable and also quite efficient.

  3. Ah, ok. I have Piccolo Special Edtion which is really good depending on the blade. I thought you might have owned their slant FATIP LO STORTO as you seem to like slants a lot. 🙂

  4. I didn’t know about it — my razor purchasing has slowed considerably. But I’m interested and might give it a go.
