Hello all, I have for the last 9 years worked in British prisons as an officer (or Guard, Warder, Correctional officer if you prefer) and have always been told by the convicts how crappy the prison issue shaving equipment is. Most of them prefer to buy mach 3/fusion carts and canned goo. Since my conversion to DE I wondered how poor the shave quality of this stuff actually is. So I assembled the standard issue kit:
several single bladed disposable razors
2x bars of White Windsor 'buttermilk' soap
A very suspect and dodgy looking brush
A prison issue plastic bowl.
I must say I did manage a very decent shave, not quite BBS but most decent, far better than I was expecting. and i found out that the soap used is a triple milled affair that with a crown logo stamped into it sells for £10ish in Harrods
So are there any CONUS Officers out there that wanna gather some of their prison issue kit, and do a swap and compare our countries prison shave gear.
if get in touch and let me know
