My shave today: Harbor Lights shave soap, Semogue 830 boar brush, Weishi adjustable razor (Parker blade), Cremo Cooling aftershave.
I kind of switched things up today for research purposes. The Harbor Lights shave soap, gifted to me by Steve, the owner of the new Shave Shack Of Texas vendor site, has a mild “oceanic” scent to it (not surprising given the name) and performs very well. I used the Semogue 830 brush to test out a theory I have on getting the right amount of water in any brush (and I think the theory is working out! More about this very soon!) but even besides that I got a surprisingly good lather out of it even though it’s not fully broken-in yet (the PAA travel scuttle kept the lather nice and warm, too). I like the Weishi adjustable a lot: of the new crop of adjustables out of China I think this one is by far the best (great price, too), despite some quirks. Cremo’s aftershave did its usual fine job.
