Gillette HD Rocket/Israeli
SMFIII
Trumper's Violets soap
Lucky Tiger ASB/toner
Trumper's Wellington EDC

Yep - I broke out of the AC routine. Applying what I'd learned from using the AC for the last couple of months to shaving with the DE gave me one of the best shaves I've ever achieved.

Hello Richard in Canada,

I like the "man in motion" perspective actually. It adds the "human" touch to otherwise inanimate objects. I say, "Carry On!"

Jim, beautiful black and gold motif.

For me, a humble setup of SCS New Spice soap and B&B Cologne.

Cheers,
Richard in TX

Thursday:

Gillette HD Rocket & Swedish Gillette blade
Simpson Polo #8 Best
T&H Lime shave cream
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Penhaligon's Lime cologne

I dug the T&H Lime cream out of the back of the closet, I'd half forgotten that I had the pot. It's beginning to get a little overly...a....firm....so, I'm thinking that I better make more use of it, or lose what remains. I've always gotten a good shave with this stuff, and while I prefer the scent of the Coate's, the Truefitts is still nice, if a little different.

Gordon, that Penhaligon's lime cologne popped off the page at me. I'm guessing that it's no longer made, or that I must go to their shop in London and say the secret password to get it?

Richard--

Is that the good ol "Badger and Bristle Mix" from Caswell Massey?? If so, I used that brush for years. Still have it. Maybe I should give it a spin.

Richard, are those Wilks (UK) or (German)? I thought the ones in the white were German, because they are available here locally. The ones at blademail have black covering with white letter and are suppose to be UKs.

Hello Scott,

Yes, that is the badger and bristle special from C-M. It really works well on all soaps. It would be really superb if they made it in a larger size.

Cheers,
Richard in Texas

Bob, ( chuckle ) I thought you might notice that. It's no longer made. Penhaligons had a range they called "English Classics", which included the Lime, an Eau de Cologne, and my all time favourite Lavender Water for gents. The Penhaligon's Lime is something like the T&H, only more lime, and less other things. It's also quite long lasting for a true lime men's cologne.
Regards,
Gordon
