Weds, Dec 13
Brush: Omega Boar
Soap/Creme: Cella
Razor:Gem 1912
Blade: Whatever it is that they Sell at Walgreens
Pre: hot towel
Post: alum plus witch hazel
Hair Groom: Jeris w/ oil
Result: It has been a while since I pulled out my SE razor, but I got one of the closest shaves I've ever had with it. The downside is that the combination of being a bit out of practice with it and my having had a rougher than usual shave yesterday meant that, while it was BBS, it also has left me a bit raw, hence the alum block and witch hazel, instead of my currently preferred lilac vegetal splashes. Still, it was amazingly close shave, and nothing is quite like the sound a 1912 makes when it mows down whiskers.
