Merkur HD
Gillette 7 O'Clock SharpEdge (shave #2)
Omega 10005
Mitchell's Wool Fat Shaving Soap
Nivea Replenishing Post Shave Balm

First shave in two days as I've been somewhat under the weather. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's shave as I just received a 1961 Gillette Fat Boy, my second only DE in two years of wet shaving.

After the usual 1-2 minute hot towel prep:

old Fields brush
Executive(gold fatboy)/Iridium
TGQ Leatherneck SS
Lumene AS balm
TGQ 'Leatherneck' extrait

Last time I previously used this razor was maybe 6 months ago, and then again these last four days. I hadn't used it much because I didn't want to put much wear on the thing. They don't show up too often in my travels, and I already use a fatboy as my go to razor.

For whatever the reason, this thing has now become my very favorite razor. I've been getting the best shaves with this than any other fatboy type I've used. Heh, the last Executive I had was too aggressive for me and I sold it soon after buying it. Weird deal.

BBS results,
