Shave of the Day 4/28

Today, I broke out the Gillette Aristocrat. I am going to send it to my oldest son, Philip. We were at his home for Eli's birthday, and I talked up wet-shaving with him. I will get together a starter kit for him and send it off this week. The Aristocrat will be a good starter razor for him. He has used cartridges and gel in the past, but now he shaves with electric. I think this will make a big difference in his experience. Today's shave was:

Hot shower prep
Williams Mug Shaving Soap
Parker pure badger brush
Gillette Aristocrat with Shark Super Chrome blade
Three pass shave
Dickenson's Witch Hazel
Pinaud Clubman AS

Coming your way, Philip.

New Favorite

My British Gillette New is fast becoming my favorite razor.  It has a long open comb and is a very smooth shaver. I keep going back to it because of the great shaves. I have had no nicks, cuts, or irritation with this remarkable shaver.  The original handle is a little short, so I have been using the handle from my American Gillette New. I think I would prefer a handle that was heavier, but otherwise, I am totally satisfied with my new favorite razor.
