Pre-shave: Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap, orange
Lather: Mike’s Natural Lime Soap (sample)
Brush: Turkish No6 horse hair brush
Razors: Merkur 39C slant and Parker 22, both with a “Racer Super Stainless” blade
Post-shave: Alum block and aloe vera
Took my time loading the brush and was rewarded with a rich, creamy lather. This was the third and last shave with the Egyptian Racer Super Stainless – okay blades but not great, definitely performed better in the 22R than the 39C. A partial touch up pass on my neck was needed to get a durn fine shave.
