Razor: Boker King Cutter 4/8
Brush: Elvado synthetic
Aftershave: RazoRock P.160 balm
Day 3 on my straight razor training. Today I pulled the family heirloom Boker King Cutter to give it a first go. I wanted to pair it up with some classic style products. I recently acquired an Arko shave stick (that I grated into the tin you see). It has a clean lemony soap scent. It is very much an acquired taste, but I did quite like it. It lathered very easily and was plenty slick. A classic I think every traditional wet shaver should try.
I once again went for a couple passes with the straight and again had good results. 2 full passes, no cuts or nicks, a little cleanup required for a few trouble spots. I need to work on technique for running the blade different directions, but I’m confident I’ll get there. I cleaned up with a quick 1 pass with a DE.
For the post, I used another classic inspired scent. I opted for this RazoRock P.160 balm. This guy is a sweet almond/marzipan scent. Scent strength was average (which is OK for this sweet scent) and performance was also average. Nothing amazing, but it did the job, just what I would expect for a budget product line. No complains, and a great shave to finish out the long weekend. Hope everyone is having a great one!
