Impression

I am really starting to appreciate these vintage Gillette Techs. Run with a sharp blade, they are a lot of fun and this Feather blade, once run through a couple of times with a Muhle R41, has been used for quick polish ups in vintage Gillette Techs and they seem very well suited. Once run in, they'll continue for a good few shaves yet, hand-stropped each time.

Today was about face freeze! I enjoyed it last night and wanted more, so shaved with NSS Ice & Slice which builds up a lovely chill while shaving and proper freezes when you get to the cold rinse. Lovely! Deep freeze to follow: Alcolado.

Last night, I fancied that the Alcolado left me feeling pretty dry. Tonight, with the olive oil based shaving soap, I feel great - dry, but not stretched. Just right to go to bed on ...

'night, all.
