~SOTD~ 30th March

Prep ~ Shower, Aleppo soap
Razor ~ Ever-Ready 1912 fitted with SS handle
Blade ~ Ever-Ready Corrux Stropping Blade
Soap ~ P.160 Duro
Brush ~ TSN LE Boar 2018 (Semouge)
Post ~ Thayers rose petal WH

I've got a soft spot for ER 1912s and will always have a few of them but i realy like what the longer heavier handle has done to the feel of this razor.
The P.160 needs no introduction I'm sure, as slick and creamy as it ever was, such a shame it's no longer available .
My Semouge LE Boar brush is a joy to use and gets the most use even though I have a silly number of brushes to choose from in the morning!
With this combo I could not fail to have a wonderful shave.

Enjoy you're weekend folks, P.

A rare outing with a DE was so good yesterday that I had to do another to prove it was not a fluke. This time another Adjustable the LH Progress, which I used on a low setting and perhaps a shallower angle than I used previously. The Shave was not only smooth and comfortable, but the quality of the finish was excellent, I really should use my `DEs more often.
