SOTD : Saturday 3rd October to Friday 9th October 2020.


Soap - Tabac Stick
Brush - Zenith Euro X (unbleached boar, 24 mm/ 58 mm)
Razor - Souplex Bakelite
Blade - Lancet Super Platinum (1)
Post - Witch Hazel/Nivea Balm
Splash - Akcay Tobacco

I was planning to give my bleached Zenith boar an extended run out, but I didn't quite have the enthusiasm to do this morning and looked to it's unbleached counterpart instead. The Zenith Euro X looks quite similar to it's Omega counterpart (the 10066) in some ways same colour handle but the loft of the Euro X is a few mm's taller and in the shave today it was quite scrubby, great backbone and it's incredibly efficient as well. I loaded about the same amount of soap for yesterday's shave and produced enough lather for 4 passes, whilst yesterday's lather I just about had enough lather for about 2 passes.
The Lancet Super Platinum is a blade I've used once before and for Tabactober I'd test another one to see if I had any intention of buying them in bulk, the last one I remember was on the sharper side of things so I paired the blade with my mildest razor head, the Souplex Bakelite and in the shave it was delightfully smooth and efficient, and I had a very comfortable and close shave.
A great lather and a great shave, really pleased with the results.
