    SOTD JULY 14, 2020

    Welcome to Tabac Tuesday. Today was the inaugural shave with the new-to-me Genco 35. The fellow who swapped with me claimed he had honed this vintage razor after restoring it with a series of progressive hones all the way to 12,000 grit. Well it was certainly sharp enough. The two pass (WTG, ATG) mug shave went well with one slight weeper during the second pass just below the Adam’s Apple which disappeared upon WH application. I’ve learned that a thinner, slippery lather seems to work best for me with a straight razor, and that was certainly the case this morning. The result was another DFS++.

    I spent more time building my dome lather into the thick, yogurty consistency preferred with my safety razors. The razor for my dome shave was my 2011 R41 which I have sitting on my spare Occam’s DE handle. This razor was initially intimidating given its reputation for efficiency, until I began using it regularly. In actuality, my Barbasol FH is probably a tad bit more efficient. In any case, the R41 made short work of my dome stubble, mowing everything right down to the skin line, in the process leaving a few remaining rough areas in the usual valleys on the back of the noggin. Some selective buffing eradicated that problem and left me cool, refreshed, clean and oh so velveteen (VBBS).

    RAZOR: Genco 35 (Mug), Muhle R41 (2011)
    BLADE: Suneko (2)
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by a scrub with Rabid Banana Preshave Cube
    BRUSH: Alpha Shaving T-400 w/ 26mm Boar Knot
    SOAP: Tabac w/ 6 drops of M-Bomb
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by Humphreys Lilac WH. Finished with Osage Rub and Cremo Cooling Post Shave Balm.

    Ischiapp-I'm curious what you think of the A&E Kaizen soap. Personally, I'm amazed that a soap that seems to have every kind of fat under the sun in it doesn't feel greasy on the face after the shave (like, say WK King of Oud).

    There are many roads to sharp.
