Impression

Playing with a bunch of new stuff ...

Today brought me a whole heap of cool shaving gear, but rising to the top was a Sheffield made Durham Domino which had a vintage blade in there. Cleaned, sterilised and stropped, it had a good edge. Over 100 years old, possibly, and still stropped up ready for use.

Two passes with my new Rose of Bulgaria shaving cream and I'm feeling smooth. Very smooth. The alum wash was absolutely without sting!

The Rose of Bulgaria Aftershave was so good. It put me a lot in mind of Alt Innsbruck, menthol and scent. The menthol is cooling without any burn and the lingering scent so nice. Mrs pegged it as Turkish Delight.

In all, a great pair of shaving products and a lovely razor with a superb vintage blade.
