    Just the Basics June!

    June 14

    Razor - Kai Captain (pain stick)
    Blade - [​IMG]
    Soap - Stirling Sheep
    Brush - 30DC Meet UP LE w/ TGN Grade A Silvertip
    Post - Alum

    I'm not sure how a pain stick focus turned up inside Just the Basics June, but it appears to have done just that. I just moved right on to the Kai Captain tonight. Very similar in size to the Feather SS, this is another higher end pain stick. Different shape grip but it features a head/blade holder based on the Feather DX and CJB. No safety lip needed nor wanted on this razor. Just stayed with a Feather Pro blade. I've used the Kai AC blades and they are excellent, but I think the Feathers are just a tad better. Maybe half a tad, whatever that is. For the soap and brush combination I decided to name it SHEEP SUNDAY and use the Stirling Sheep for that mutton tallow awesomeness! The 30DC Meet Up LE handle with the Silvertip knot was a true joy to use and I could have done 6 passes before running out of lather. As it was I just did three passes, then a light fourth more for touch up and just to keep playing around. Ended very near BBS and the alum was mostly quiet, except for one small slip near my goatee where I had a shaky set down. Nothing major, just a drop of blood and a sting from the alum. Other than that, a fantastic shave.

    The new week dawns. Go get it!

    Tonight's shave

    Razor - Super Kikuboshi 6/8" this was the razor I fell in love with when I started shaving with a striaght. It was my white whale. A little over a year later and I still love it just as much as I did the first time I saw it.

    Strop - Red Imp 700c

    Brush - Rick Montalvo I'm not sure what knot is in it. I bought it used. It feels like a 26mm knot.

    Soap - Stirling for him

    Aftershave - Crabtree & Evelyn West Indian Lime Balm

    Another Monday...
    This endless repetition reminds me of Sisyphus' fatigue!
    I envy his pertinence and cunning, but, by golly, what a nuisance...
    On the other hand, I don't see much difference between what was imposed on him and what is imposed on us.

    And, while happy not to have been born a woman, our annoyances are not few and the idea of converting one into a satisfying liturgy is not bad.

    I ordered some blades and I'm venting to try again the ones I intend to abandon: the Rapira that I used today, and that I liked quite a few years ago, today didn't seem much to me.

    While, once again, I liked the soap so much that I'm thinking about giving up selling my NOS Nomad.
    The Crabtree & Evelyn, of which many people complain about the poor latherability, used as a stick, lathers immediately and creates a fragrant lather. Immediately.
    And it's very slick too!

    The brush knot is really good and, of course, plays an important role.

    The shortcomings of today's shaving are attributable solely to the razor blade.

    The Duke was good too, even if some of the pieces are a bit too frantic for a shaving.

    Schick Proline
    Osage Rub

    The Proraso Green Shave Soap face-lathered well with my Jayaruh #1 Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Schick C Repeater with a Schick Proline blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
