Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: 1956 Gillette Red Tip Superspeed*
Blade: Astra Keramik*
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE Two Band*
Soap or Cream: Body Shop Cream (old formula)*
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Wesley & Scott Lavender Balm*

A very nice shave, using mostly items that are no longer being produced (indicated by asterisks). I like using the old stuff–it’s a reminder that some very capable shaving products have departed from the scene.
