Gentlemen, today was the best day I have had in a long time and the evening shave was right on par.

Wednesday Birthday Shave

Gillette "Fat Handle" Tech
Savile Row 3722
Trumpers's Coconut Oil Shaving Cream
D.R. Harris Aftershave Milk

I loved the Coconut cream. The milk was definitely different than the pink that I have been using lately, but I think I will like it once I figure out a little more about it. The highlight of this shave was the brush. First impression of the brush: I Love It. Everything I was looking for in a brush, this brush fits the bill perfectly.

Yard work to do, so I haven't gotten to it yet, but this will be the day's kit:

Omega boar
ProBomb sc*
Merkur 1904
Dorco ST301
Thayer's a/s

*A Proraso-type version of Alraz's The Bomb. This is scented with EO, not FO, so its scent is slightly different, slightly stronger, and slightly more addictive than Proraso, which for me is saying something. Looking forward to testing out the menthol level and shave. Will post more in Soaps & Creams after the shave.
