Blade: Astra Keramik
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE Two-Band
Soap or Cream: Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet Soap (tallow formula)

Monday, April 2nd

Razor: Gibbs Click Pen*
Blade: Schick Chromium*
Brush: Vie-Long Beehive LE (Horse/Badger)*
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Yardley*
A/S: Yardley*

A great shave with mostly discontinued products. The VL Beehive with the mixed knot is breaking in nicely and ginned up a copious amount of lather from the Yardley soap. The Gibbs razor loaded with a fresh Schick Chromium blade glided over my face and left me with a very close and comfortable shave. A splash of vintage Yardley aftershave and I am ready for the day. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

Mournful Monday AM

Dirty Bird scuttle
Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Somerset Simpson Persian Jar 2 Super brush
Floris No. 89 shaving soap
Wilkinson Sticky razor
Personna 74 blade (2)
Floris No. 89 aftershave

Barely a socially acceptable shave today. The Personna was dull from the gitgo, just a rare dud, I guess. But the Floris soap and aftershave were wonderful, as always.
