'46-47 Aristocrat
Treet Dura Sharp (2)
Simpson Special, pure
Musgo Real
Ogallala Bay Rum and Sandalwood

Of all my TTO's, this razor seems to have the best attack angle to effect comfortable shaves. Not too aggressive, not too mild. It's a mystery.

Razor - Slim Adjustable (set to 3)
Blade - Merkur
Brush - Altesse
Soap - Proraso (white tub)
Toner - Thayers alcohol-free witch hazel
A/S - Proraso splash

Very smooth shave - no nicks or weepers. Hoping to get a better result from the splash A/S - for some reason, my skin seems to not have a very pleasant reaction to the Proraso balm - the scent seems to "change" into something metallic. *fingers crossed!*
