Wednesday AM 2018-02-21

Georgetown Pottery G12 scuttle (Hamada & Persimmon)
Rooney Polo 1 Ivory Finest (25/54) (new brush)
Roger & Gallet l'Homme shaving soap (vintage)
RazoRock Mamba
Polsilver Super Iridium (3)
Roger & Gallet l'Homme aftershave (vintage)

Another typical Rooney Finest, with perfect backbone and soft tips. The Polo has always been one of my favorite styles, and this one fits my hand better than the slightly larger Size 2.

Friday AM 2018-02-23

Georgetown Pottery G12 scuttle (Green Oribe & Purple)
Rooney Stubby 3XL Ivory Finest (31/53) (new brush)
Penhaligon's English Fern shaving soap (tallow)
Delta Echo Black Chrome-Nickel Feather AS-D2/Triad Blue Aristocrat Titanium
Polsilver Super Iridium (5)
Penhaligon's English Fern aftershave (vintage)

This brush is very dense and quite scrubby, but it still has very soft tips. It worked well with the wonderful old soap.

Saturday AM 2018-02-24

Georgetown Pottery G20 scuttle (Hamada & Purple)
Rooney Stubby 3XXL Ivory Finest (33/53) (new brush)
Floris Verbena shaving soap (vintage)
RazoRock Mamba/UFO Colibri 77
Polsilver Super Iridium (6)
Ralph Lauren Polo aftershave

As expected, the brush is a dense lather hog, but it has surprisingly moderate backbone and very soft tips. The Colibri feels a bit too short to be comfortable for me.
