... another loaner, this time a smiler!


Routine

Hot Towel
Erasmic Shaving Soap
Pure Badger
Straight 4/8?
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Alum Wash
Old Spice Aftershave

Technique

Face Lathered
Two Pass - Both WTG

Impression

Measuring something like 4/8, this lightly smiling blade is one which I've been a little fearful of ... straight blades, fine, smiling blades could be unpredictable, but ... I was wrong and took to this quite happily.

The soap was good and absolutely nothing like the cream, but distinctively "Erasmic" in the scent. Enjoyed. Cheers!

Two passes, both WTG. Well, WTG and a little mucking around some complicated areas. I wanted a shave. I got a shave and a couple of fiddly areas that annoy me if I don't get them shaved also got shaved.

Not enormously close, but absolutely presentable and just the one nick under my jawline, gone with the alum wash. With my next shave with this blade, I'll go across the grain as well.

One step at a time ...
