Doppelgänger and the Plisson Grey Badger, with one of Gillette’s new DE razors

leave a comment »

This brush is coarse on the face, and it took me a while to realize that was enjoyable. Note: the feel is not prickly, just coarse. And the lather it aroused was wonderful, from Phoenix Artisan’s CK-6 formula. 

The Gillette DE razor uses the Edwin Jagger/Mühle head, and has a fairly heavy handle. A heavy handle is no problem, since the razor then feels agile; a heavy head and lightweight handle is not so good. And the shave was superb. EJ/Mühle really did themselves proud with that head.

A dab of the Star Jelly aftershave balm, and I’m good to go.

And I just scored a couple of Grooming Dept Mallard Formula shaving soaps, which you’ll see here in due time. I imagine they’ll be sold out by the end of the week if not the end of the day, so if you’re interested, act fast.
