Georgetown G4 scuttle
Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Rooney 1/2 Faux Horn Finest brush
Floris No. 89 shaving cream (vintage)
Wilkinson Sticky razor
Wilkinson London Bridge blade (1)
Floris No. 89 aftershave (vintage)

This was as near to a perfect shave as is possible. All the equipment and products performed superbly. I was BBS smooth after two passes and did a third just for form, and that final ATG pass was the smoothest I've ever had. Wow.

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: iKon OSS
Blade: Gillette Dark Blue
Brush: Thater Stout 2 (4125/2)
Soap or Cream: Trumper's Limes Cream
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, TOBS No. 74 Victorian Lime Splash

An excellent, citrusy shave this morning. It's going to be hot today, but this morning's shave was a great way to get started. The No. 74 Victorian Lime, with its touch of menthol, provided a great finish.
