Impression

First play with my new Kent brush and I found it very different indeed to a badger hair brush. It doesn't hold a lot of water and so you need to dip and pump quite frequently to whip up a lather, but it is thick, creamy and very protective. I had a fantasy face lather earlier with some soap and it took a long while in comparison to my usual brush, a simple pure badger. I'll get used to it, I'm sure. Different strokes for different folks.

Now, the razor. I've had this for a short while, shaved, stropped and shaved again. I think it's a bit scratchy now but shaved well nevertheless. I've played with this crazy cut-down and an hilariously slim Filarmonica over the last few days, but would you believe it? Polishing up with a Bic Sensitive, I nicked myself. I've not done this for weeks now, not with a straight, not with a single edge window scraper, double edged carpet cutter nor proper safety razor. The Bic bit me.

Blood flow stemmed with alum, I'll finish off and salute this razor prior to its return with the finest a man can pat onto his face: Pinaud Lilac Vegetal.

Instant burn, instant smooth, instant awesome!

I feel and smell amazing. If I was a polar bear, I'd go terrorise some tourists on the tundra!

Over and out ...
