I decided to go with a different razor/blade today: the Henson AL+++ with a Wizamet blade. I don’t find this razor to be as smooth as the ++model. The shave was close but close but not comfortable. I used my Maggards 28mm synthetic brush today. This is a nice brush that for me has some backbone so it loads soap easily. The MdC soap is on its 229th shave. A nice shave: close with no stubble left behind. Have a great day, folks.
