D.R. Harris Marlborough Shaving Cream
Vulfix #2235 Super
Merkur Futur
Gillette "Swede"

Just a change of pace to reajust the olifactory nerves for another round of the Rose. The new Rose cream gives a thicker lather than my Marlborough.

Schick Injector Adjustable
Schick Platinum Blade
Simpson's Best Badger Special
Kent Soap (MWF)
D.R. Harris Pink a/s
Penhaligon's Douro edt

Like Mr. McClaine, I am having thoughts regarding my relationship with DE razors. Every time that I use this particular Injector, I get results on a par with any DE razor that I have used, but with less effort, and less risk of blood. Food for thought.....
