Merkur 1904 w/ Feather
Omega #80266 boar
Trumper's Eau de Quinine

There's something in the EdQ that coagulates in the shaker top, so I have to open it with a pipe cleaner each time. Maybe too much cholesterol.

After the usual 1-2 minute hot towel prep:

old Fields brush
1958 Executive/vintage Krona
DR Harris Marlborough SS
Lumene AS balm
TGQ 'Leatherneck' extrait

Fifth shave using the same razor/blade combo. I could get a few more uses from the blade, but I'm gonna retire it. Very impressive performance with the stainless of the best blades I've tried.

I'm done with the Marlborough I think. The scent just doesn't grab me like it did in the past. Oh well, I have a few other things to keep me busy.

BBS results,

Super Iridium
Simpson Colonel X2L Best
