'73 Superspeed w/ Astra Superior Platinum (1)
Semogue '09 LE #19
MWF ss
Thayers Cucumber WH w/ aloe
Anherb a/s conditioner
Chevignon Edt

Decided to try the Astra again to good effect this morning. A terrific shave with the help of the MWF soap (I broke the ceramic dish and decided to put it in my Target cappuccino cup and it has worked marvelously the past two days.) As close to a BBS shave as I've had in a long while.

Razor: Merkur Long-Handled Classic (23C)
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Vulfix 2234 Super
Cream: Proraso
A/S: Generic Witch Hazel, Proraso Splash

Excellent BBS shave. I still think Proraso is one of the better creams out there--it has never given me a bad shave.

The Proraso splash was a great way to top off today's shave.

Another pull from the back of the drawer, the wonderful shaving Speick. Undoubtedly one of the more unsung but stellar wet shaving items. Time for a trip over to Merz to stock up on this beauty.
