After the usual 1-2 minute hot towel prep:

old Fields brush
1958 Executive/Iridium
vintage Williams SS
Lumene AS balm
vintage Aramis 'Havana' EdT

Very nice shave this morning, helped along by the Williams. Not sure when this soap was made, but it's one of the older versions. Very nice lather......slick and with plenty of cushion to the stuff. Post shave skin care is better than most soaps. Too bad the scent is completely gone, but sometimes you can't have everything.

I'm enjoying the heck out of this EdT.........lucky find for me. The scent lasts many hours, and it's nice catching whiffs of that during the day.

BBS results,

Merkur HD/Derby Extra
Lucky Tiger Molle Brushless Shave Cream
Thayers Witch Hazel w/Aloe
Lucky Tiger Vanishing Cream After Shave

Another fine shave, yesterdays shave lasted quite well into the evening. This morning I fought the strange urge to "speed up" using the brushless and kept focus on keeping a good stroke and form with good to go results.
Good shaving,

Good day Thursday

Muhle R89 with Derby
Chubby 1 super 2B
Cella shave soap

Maiden voyage with the Chubby 1 this morning. Quite a nice brush. It's a lather machine. Nice and soft on the face yet not in the least bit floppy. Definitely my favorite of the Simpson range that I've tried so far (PL8 Best and PJ2 super 2B).
