Durham Domino Anniversary Shave

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday Durham Domino!
Happy Birthday to you!!!

Patented 5th April 1910, this is my anniversary shave for the Durham Domino.


Routine

Hot Towel
Wickham Soap Company Mentholated Hard Soap (pre-Market)
Pure Badger
Durham Domino - Personna [5]
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Alum Wash
Old Spice Original Aftershave

Technique

Face Lathered
Two Pass - WTG & XTG

Impression

These blades hold their own with a simple strop after use. I used this blade four times in a row before stropping and have stropped after each shave since. They come back good enough for two passes which is just about perfect for this type of shave.

I really like Wickam Soap Company's hard soap - I got to try out the mentholated hard soap from the first batch and like it a lot. If the new formula is anything like this, it will be a winner!

But come on ... who am I kidding?

Shaving with a carpet blade in a dog dresser and getting some of the best shaves ever? Really?
