Becker scuttle
Ach Brito Glyce preshave soap
Somerset Simpson Polo 14 Manchurian (34/57)
Crabtree & Evelyn Sweet Almond Oil shaving cream
Wilkinson Sticky
Super Iridium (6)
Ralph Lauren Classic aftershave balm

Another great shave. The PL14 is really too big to use easily, but like with some of the big Plexi Plissons, its beauty and great softness make it worth having.

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: iKon OSS
Blade: Astra Superior Platinum
Brush: Omega "Scarlatti" Boar
Soap or Cream: Fitness "Cream"
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Proraso Splash

An excellent shave today, using a cream that I haven't used before. Actually, the Fitness is more like a cream/soap or soft soap, rich in glycerine but no tallow. It makes lather easily, and has a discernable almond scent. A splash of Proraso seemed like an appropriate finish, and my face agreed–now it's off to breakfast with a friend.
