Edwin Jagger DE86 with Derby
Simpson CH1 two banded super
Queen Charlotte Soap: Sandalwood
jojoba oil

I've been comparing my two razors, the Muhle R89 and the EJ DE86 for a little while now. They are virtually the same razor, but I've concluded that the DE86 is a tad more aggressive and I prefer it. Seems to give me a slightly smoother shave.

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur 23C
Blade: Treet DuraSharp
Brush: EJ Best Badger
Cream: Proraso
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Proraso Splash

Although I can't make a side to side comparison, of course, shave #5 today on this blade seemed as good as shave #1. However, 5 is the official retirement age, shave-wise, for Treet DS's--company policy. The shave today was smooth and comfortable and was a reminder of how much I appreciate Proraso.

Razor: Gillette NEW OC
Blade: Schick Plus Platinum w/ Teflon (1st use) :D
Soap: Man Cave - Gatsby
Brush: Omega 48 (The Chrome Beast)
Toner: Thayers Peach WH
A/S: Man Cave - Gatsby

This was the first time shaving with the new Man Cave products; and both the soap and the aftershave were exceptional. I highly reccommend this company and their great products.
