Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Simpson's Ehsan
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Gada Cool Mint (Thanks Jeff)
A/S: Alt Innsbruck

I received the Gada Cool Mint Shaving cream in a trade from Crackstar (Jeff). I had never heard of Gada shaving cream before but it now has a place in my rotation. The Cool Mint is heavily mentholated and will make an excellent summer cream. A small strip of cream produced mounds of rich, slick and protective lather and I enjoyed an excellent shave with lingering cooling. The Alt Innsbruck added to the face freeze. Very Nice! -Czech & Speake, Taylor of Old Bond Street, Geo F. Trumper, D.R. Harris, Kent, Edwin Jagger and More

Gillette Model #58 & LB Wilkinson blade
Plisson #12 HMW
Trumpers Rose hard shaving soap
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Floris's Original Gentlemen's Cologne

This particular 'HMW' is clearly not a true whitecap brush, but I like it a good deal. It reminds me quite a bit of my beloved old three band T3, or a BK4 with less loft and more backbone. Of course, it was also very expensive, so, it would only be 'worth it' for factors beyond the purely pragmatic.
