Tuesday night:

Razor: Phoenix double-comb razor (on loan from Gary/brothers)
Blade: Treet Dura Sharp

Brush: Semogue 1305
Soap: Mike's Natural, Lime

Lather made on top of the soap.
2 1/2 passes

Cold water rinse.

Smooth shave to start the week.

Gary kindly sent me this razor to try. Knowing that Gary likes aggressive razors, I approached the shave with some trepidation and great care. I got a very close shave without mishap - no nicks or weepers - but I do notice some razor burn afterwards.

Thiers Issard 69, 6/8 Extra Hollow, French Point

A good razor, a fine representative of the interesting French tradition about straight razors. This is not the only Thiers Issard razor in my collection, however I like this one very much, also for its French point, a style I learned to enjoy over time, in my opinion, very effective. The finishing touch has been provided by the excellent Floid Blue, an aftershave said to be discontinued, something I keep on hearing quite a lot lately, and this time it seems to be true. What a pity. I hope Colomer will change its mind about the beloved Floid Blue and resume production.
