Keeping with European Week I went with my long-time English friend in the Edwin Jagger DE89. This was the very first double edge razor I ever bought. The one that started it all for me 10+ years ago.
I also choose my Spanish Vie-Long horse brush which I tend to often use along side the always wondered Stirling Soap Company, Haverford shaving soap. This brush and soap combo never fail to provide me an enjoyable shave.
I did a three-pass shave and was quite surprised at how well the EJ DE89 performed when paired with the Eddison Super Stainless blade on its fifth use. I ended up with an easy bbs shave. I mean, this blade just won't quite. That and/or the DE89 is just that good!
For the love of Haverford and Tobacco Vanille, I can't recommend the scent enough. Just beautiful, manly and strong.
All in all, another great shave was had today.
Rock on gentlemen and enjoy your shaves.
