I have had quite a nice time with fidelity in my shaving routine for the last several months or so. I started and finished an entire tablet of Institute Karite shave soap with out any intrusions of other products (I did mix it a few times with some QED Bay Rum soap). I have only used my Semogue 2000 and the Omega Boar (the same style that Gil always raves about), and some Sundays I use my CH3. FYI I just started a new tablet of Tabac and am two weeks in it without any indiscretions.
BUT, my duties at work have predicted that I will be travelling quite a bit over the next few months and that was all the push I needed to go out and buy a travel brush. I didn't have a small brush that would dry fast(er?). I would be able to have ready for any other travel needs in the future. You see, it is unquestionably a 'needed' addition to my dopp kit.
I just ordered it so I can't comment more than it is on the way but, I got the Rooney Travel Brush with the faux tortoise accents. It is my first Rooney and I have long awaited the 'need' / 'urge' to buy one.
In reading his thread
, I commend Mr. Snodgrass and his commitment in 2011 to narrow down his routine, but as many have cautioned him, and I add my voice to that group, the acquisition disorders we all seem to suffer from are indeed cyclical, and I hope I haven't just jumped back out there.
Nevertheless, I hope it is a winner and will report when I know more.
