Gillette New Improved

Shave of the Day
OC tober 7, 2013

DR Harris Windsor soap
Ever-Ready 200M boar brush
Gillette New Improved Razor
Shark Stainless Steel blade (2)
Pinaud Clubman aftershave
A nice close shave from the New Improved, but a bit more tug.  Not sure whether it is the razor, the blade, or the angle.  Love the Widsor soap.  I bought the Windsor for the bowl, because I could not get a bowl with lavender.  I will probably buy another bowl of Windsor.

•Arko stick soap

Shave of the Day
August 19, 2013

•EverReady C40 boar brush
•iKon open comb head with Shavecraft bulldog handle
•Shark Super Chrome blade (3)
•Pinaud Clubman aftershave

Tabac is a great start with thick easy to build lather and a scent that is solid and classic (and I can’t describe it).

The iKon head is configured to provide an efficient and close shave.

Clubman is a great finish to any shave.

I am waiting for the iKon Slant. Maybe Thursday. Phil at Bullgoose has been great with keeping me informed.

I also have a Fatboy on the way. It is going to be a good week.
