Razor “Rotbart”
Blade “Feather”
Brush “Omega 48″
Soap “Trumper Almond”
AS “Tesori d’ Oriente - Legno di Guajaco”

I have to get used to this brush and it still has its "special fragrance".

EJ Super
PdP ss
Super adjustable
Crystal
Alcolado Glacial
Atkinson's English Lavender

Better shave than yesterday's identical setup. Face-lathering is still hit-or-miss with the EJ, I believe due to its size. Slight irritation in one spot, but otherwise a near-perfect shave.

Tim

Progress/NOS WS LB
Sabrooney finest 1/2
Trumper's Almond soap
Lucky Tiger Tonic
Knize Ten edt

I found a piece of cardboard in my blade dispenser with the ominous message "Only one blade remains...".
I was actually a little nervous at switching back to the Progress after a fortnight of Injector shaves. No transition needed, a lovely smooth shave from the first stroke to the last.
