Just in from Toronto. This morning’s shave with the Gold Dachs soap was wonderful, a solid 9.8. The GD has a very pleasant and unique smell and it lathers up like a dream – its the first soap I would be comfortable using alone instead of in a superlather…yup, that good! The blade was a Sputnik from my Hall of Fame Ziplock bag loaded into the E.J Chatsworth…still the best DE razor on the market IMHO (YMMV). Finishing pass with the excellent Hydrolast Cutting Balm (oil) and the day was off to a great start…at 5 A.M.!
