Pre shave - Hot Towel, Palmolive Shave Stick
Razor - Weber ARC
Blade - Astra S/S
Brush - New Forest Tubby 1 Finest
Soap - RazoRock Mudder Focker
Cold Rinse/ Witch Hazel/ RazoRock Aftershave Wax

The N/F Finest is a tidy little brush, especially with the Mudder Focker... but my face is suffering...maybe the S/S is a little too aggressive for the Weber.. I think the S/P is more suited to it. :-/

Schwarzweisskeramik scuttle
Somerset Simpson Major Super (18/42)
Argentine Gillette Aloe shaving cream
Wilkinson Sticky
Schick Plus Platinum (1)
Ralph Lauren Classic aftershave (vintage)

BBS, and a great shave. The Major, made for travel, does not have the most ergonomic handle, but it is a fine little brush anyway.
