Bourdier 43, 6/8 Full Concave, Double Grind, Round point

In these days I am using different soaps in order to compare them with the one I make. After having used for a long time my shaving soap - and with absolute joy, satisfaction and pride - I am now using different soaps in order to get an idea of how my soap performs compared to some "well known" soaps. In this shave I also used a Bourdier razor - not so bad - and an Italian aftershave I recently bought in a shop because, I admit, it is something belonging to my memories of very old times. This "Pino Silvestre" was in fact very popular when I was a kid and I wanted to give it a try. I confess I had a truly different memory of this aftershave - including its fragrance - and it disappointed me quite a lot. Sometimes memories should be left in the place they are becasue they certainly belong to a time gone by and reviving them in a different time could be quite disappointing. As for the soap, I used the well known and celebrated Klar Kabinett and it certainly confirmed to be a very good soap. It is such a pity they quit production, a fate shared with many other good soaps of the past which certainly were not disappointing at all.
