Razor: iKon El Jefe Blem with RazoRock handle
Blade: Feather Professional Super(2)
Brush: Omega Syntex
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Proraso with Cremo beard oil.
Morning single edge shave with the iKon El Jefe Blem and Proraso. The El Jefe with the RazoRock handle is a good combination for me as well as the Feather Super. This blade seems to work well for me. I have one other Feather blade when this Super is retired. For me Proraso is one of those soaps that I will always some of. The soap is smooth and creamy ... easy to lather and provides plenty of slickness and cushion. I have the Proraso shaving creams also and I get the same results. This Omega Syntex brush is a bit more pokey than most synthetic brushes. This brush reminds me of a new boar brush. Perhaps like the boar brush ... the bristles will become less pokey with use. Pokey isn't isn't something a person usually finds in a synthetic brush. With all of that being said .. it is just surprising ... I like the brush especially at such a low price point below ten dollars. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
