Rooney 2/1 Finest
AOS Sandalwood soap
Feather SS with Feather
Thayer's Original witch hazel
Gentlemen's Refinery AS Balm
Czech & Speake No. 88

This was the third shave with the Feather/Feather combo. The Feather blade seemed a little "calmer" today (granted, I was being a bit more careful with the blade angle). Yesterday, I felt like I had "exfoliated" a bit too much. I'll be interested to see how the Feather blade settles in over the next few shaves.
