Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Morris & Forndran Blond Badger
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Czech & Speake Oxford and Cambridge
A/S: Acca Kappa Cedro Splash

I received the Czech & Speake soap in a trade for Penhaligons a while back. It is a very nice soap with a somewhat odd scent due to the added clay. Rumor has it that this is the same as AOS shave soaps but with different scents. I do not know if that is true but it did produce a wonderfully protective lather and I enjoyed a fine shave. A splash of Cedro aftershave and I am ready to play with my Weimaraner at the dog park. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

Floris JF Shave Soap
Moss Scuttle
Muhle R89 Razor
Gillette 7 O'Clock yellow
TOBS Mr. Taylor AS

I bought this soap about three years ago from when they had a sale and then some more Floris SS from during Jim's closeout sale. I don't know about their current soaps, but these "older" ones are one of the best non-tallow soaps. Whatever they did to tweak their palm oil recipes shows that it is possible to get close to a tallow-type lather. It surpasses GFT soaps and has the rich feel of soaps like IK. I would not pay their current prices however, since DRH, PC, IK, Tabac, MWF, Irisch Moos, etc. are readily available.

Yeah, those are/were great blades. Sigh.
