SOTD 14/08/2014

Drink: Dark & Spicy - Cockspur Rum, Lime, Tabasco & Old Jamaican Ginger Beer
Music: Guana Batz


After a cracking Caribbean lunch of Jerk Chicken with Rice & Pea, I fancied something much the same to drink, so went for some good Barbados rum.

For my shave ...

Bulldog Face Wash
Wickham's Spice Trade (Hard Soap)
Pure Badger 23mm
Some bizarre gadget ... see picture
Permasharp Stainless [2]
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Alum Wash
Alcolado Glacial

Face Lathered
One Pass - WTG

In all honesty, I didn't need much of a shave after last night's 1914 shave, so opted for an experimental shave tonight.

I have been lent a folding razor which takes a DE blade. It was no doubt a hair trimmer or nape scraper, but it looked like fun so I shaved with it. It's a (poor) open comb on a folding razor mechanism ... and shaved just like I thought it would, like a poor open comb.

One pass, I got away with it.

I'm possibly a little raggy, but it'll all pick up tomorrow with a decent shave from ... oh, I don't know ... a Gillette Guard, quite possibly.

I wouldn't say fun or enjoyed, but it was an interesting experience; and like a poor open comb, I'll leave it at that. It's no DE equivalent of a Durham Duplex, that's for sure. I think even a shavette was more satisfying.

Poor, but not without results.
