Synthetic 23mm knot from The Golden Nib in my father's Surrey(VDH) handle
Arko stick whipped up in a bowl
Schick Krona razor
7 o'clock yellow, 3rd shave
Thayers Lemon
Body Shop Razor Relief, <2009 formula

First time using this synthetic brush on a soap. Getting the water mix was a bit tricky because the brush held more water than I thought. Once I got the lather right, brushing it on was effortless, as this brush is as soft as a silvertip or two that I've rubbed my hand over in stores.
