Shave of the Day, December 23, 2013

Monday morning, December 23, 2013

Gillette Adjustable ‘Fatboy’ F-2 (1960)
Astra Superior Platinum blade
Semogue 1305 boar bristle brush
Tabac soap, lather with warm water—
Walgreens Witch Hazel
Studio for Men Brisk Aftershave

Wow, an incredible shave, a shave supreme! Now that I’m getting better lather (using a different technique) I once again experience the grandeur of the traditional wet-shave. My face sings like no other when using the Faboy set at 5 with a good lather or Barbasol. It took me a couple of days to get the setting and angle just right, but wow, this Fatboy is the bee’s knee’s. It has singlehandly brought my love for the DE shave back. Aces!
