Tuesday's shave saw a luscious dip into the glorious Siefe 1001 Tabula Rasa SteamPunk shaving cream... 3 lather laden passes with the Mongoose single edge left me smooth faced and ready to face the day, a vital layer of freshness was applied with a double dose of Fine Vetiver splash and Tom Ford Grey Vetiver EDT.
I loaded the Mongoose with a Feather Super Professional which are not only incredibly sharp but last up to twice as long as a standard blade is cared for correctly. The badger silver tip brush easily loaded with the 1001 Seife cream, I proceeded to face lather and we were off.
The thing about the Mongoose is that as it is wider than a normal DE or SE razor , it simply is quicker to shave using a Mongoose..
With the additional width comes a small learning curve where the angle of the razor to face is slightly higher than resting the flat side against ones skin. Once the angle is found, the shave is simple, quick and effective.
I completed 3 passes, WTG, XTG and ATG.. with a little touch up under the chin.
All in all an excellent shave with an excellent product.. yes the hype Gentleman is all true...
