Dave, don't you just love the Speck soap! There's nothing else like the fragrance of it. Cheap and good, can't be beat.

Becker scuttle
Ach Brito Glyce preshave soap
Somerset Simpson Astor Best brush
Coates LE shaving cream soap
Ever-Ready 1914 razor
Gem SS PTFE blade (2)
Acqua di Parma Colonia aftershave balm

Another great shave. The Astor, which reminds me of the 50 series, has the best flowthrough and lather release of any brush I own. The Coates is quite a good soap, very soothing. I've begun to hand strop my SE blades, and it may be just my imagination, but I think they're smoother. BBS in 3 passes.

Gary,
Agreed. I like the Speick. (I think I just invented their new advertising slogan!) The lather and scent are tops. I went to it after I finished a Palmolive stick. Their performance is identical; the scent of the Speick is nicer, not that the Palmolive is bad. I have a couple of Palmolive and Valobra sticks (notice a tallow tend here?) in stash so when those are done, I will get some more Speick (or maybe I won't wait...... :roll:). The Speick is also my travel soap; I have about 1/2" left.

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur Long Handled Progress
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Simpson Emperor 2 Two-Band
Soap or Cream: Tabac Soap
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Tabac Splash

A fine BBS shave with one of my favorite soaps, probably my first tallow-based soap. The weather has cooled to more moderate temperatures, and I'm a happy guy. There is nothing like a good shave to start the day off right!

NE Illinois is no longer being crushed by heat. The grass is brown and crunchy. And there's finally a breeze. The citizenry is warily venturing out from its air-conditioned cocoons, sniffing at the fresh air for the first time in six days. Out they go to catch up on shopping to stock next spring's garage sales.

I have no AC and so I sweated, ran the fans, drank gallons of water, and sweated some more. I, unlike my mechanically cooled neighbors, will remember this summer well. I lived in the heat and will have that memory this winter.
