Shaver: Shear Mattaki
Soap: Black Ship Davy Jones
Post shave:, witch hazel, PAA alum, Lucy Tiger aftershave and Van Yulay Smokey Mountain Whiskey beard oil.
The Shear Mattaki shavette is a very unique shaver in that not only does it take full DE blades but the design also reminds me a double edge safety razor. I know that sounds odd the design of this shavette is unique and may have to be experienced to really gain this understanding. This is a typical statement concerning DE razors: "Let the weight of the razor and sharpness of the blade do the work for you." I found myself feeling just like that. I found myself at times letting the weight of the shavette and the sharpness of the blade doing the work for me. This is a very odd feeling for me while using a shavette. I found myself liking this shaver because of the weight of the shavette and the ease of finding the angle. This shavette isn't a lightweight but I still found it easy to move around my face. A very interesting shave this morning. In closing ... don't you just love the Black Ship Gromming Company's shaving mug. I think it's cool. Stay safe and smooth shaves.
