Omega 20106
Trumpers Coconut Soap
Superior 70 bay rum
Trumpers Lime Skinfood

This razor with this blade is maybe *too* easy to use. WTG, XTG, ATG, nothing seems to be off limits.I think it may be "negative training" as we say in aviation. I'm going to have to be careful the next time I use a DE or SR.
