Razor: Merkur 45 Bakelite
Blade: Schick Krona (2)
Soap: Van Yulay Puros La Habana
Brush: Mac Metalworks 22mm
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Puros La Habana and PAA Malbolge beard oil.
First shave of January 2017 with the Merkur 45 Bakelite and Van Yulay Puros La Habana soap and aftershave (tobacco and cedar). This was my first bakelite razor and the second one was the Ox Blood Bakelite Slant from Phoenix Artisan Accourtrements. These bakelite razors will help you learn how much pressure is needed to get comfortable shave , at least for me. The Schick Krona blade was still up to the task of removing the whiskers and the shave was smooth and comfortable. This is another tobacco scented soap and aftershave that I enjoy. A nice shave to start the new year. Smooth shaves to you in the new year.
