SOTD May 5 - 11

Post by Flash G » Mon May 05, 2014 3:59 am

Simpson Chubby 2 Best
T&H Sandalwood (old)(fin)
Merkur HD 34 G
Wilkinson Sword
D.R.Harris Arlington Milk

This was my last shave with the old T&H Sandalwood and I'll be missing it. It also was my first shave with the Merkur in a long long time and it was clearly a bit more agressive then the EJ 87 I have been using daily for a long long time, but still a very good shaver. It seems it shaves a bit better on my chin, but worse on my neck. I'll be giving it a go and see how it differs from the EJ over some weeks.

-- Tuesday--

Prep: hot water wash with bath soap
Razor: 1922 Gillette Big Fellow with New Improved head
Blade: Personna Super (lab) (3)
Brush: Semogue Owners Club 2012 SE Mixed Hair
Soap: Mike's Naturals Lemongrass and Eucalyptus
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze (used as brush scuttle)
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Thayers's witch hazel

Image

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. SOC 2012 SE Mixed is a wonderful brush. It just keeps getting better every time I use it. Mike's shaving soaps are fantastic for me and I will keep buying them as long as Mike keeps making them. Gilette Big Fellow with New Improved head may become my only DE. I have no plans to use anything else in the near future.
