Day Six on the Black Beauty blade

with 2 comments

I’m astounded: today I had yet another effortless shave with a Treet Blue Special blade, and I’m left with a smooth face, no nicks, no burn, no cuts. How long can a carbon steel blade last?

To begin at the beginning: MR GLO to start with, then the Rooney Style 2 Finest and Tabac soap. Very nice lather, and I was so pleased to be using the Rooney again that I spent a fair amount of time just working the brush in the lather on my beard at every pass.

The English open-comb razor, now identified as an Aristocrat (again) and the stubborn little Black Beauty blade. Three smooth passes, the alum block, and Tabac aftershave.

I’ve put the blade aside to try it again on Monday…
