Thursday AM 06-12-2014

Georgetown Pottery G12 scuttle
Rooney 1/3 Finest (26mm/55mm)
Penhaligon's English Fern shaving soap (vintage)
Weber DLC Bulldog
Wilkinson Light Brigade (3)
Penhaligon's Lords aftershave (vintage)

The Weber DLC may be just slightly smoother than the Polished Head, but it's not significant and might just be my imagination. And the Light Brigade and tallow English Fern soap can make almost any razor smooth. I'll try the PH again tomorrow to compare once more.

Friday morning:

Prep: 3P pre shave cream
Coate's Lime cream
Semogue 1305
Noxema/Kai twin blade disposable
Pinaud Citrus Musk EDC

While these disposable razors do a reasonably good job of removing the whiskers, they certainly make one appreciate a DE razor with a good blade.
Best regards,

Basil
