Straight Razor Designs scuttle
Somerset Simpson Chubby 1 Best (25/49)
Edwin Jagger Sea Buckthorn shaving cream
Feather AS
Gillette Platinum Plus (5)
French & Fields Green Irish Tweed aftershave

A very good shave. The EJSB is good but not great. The Feather/Gillette combination is top notch. The F&F aftershave, on first use, has quite a burn for a little while, but then becomes more soothing, and it has a great scent, especially for being so inexpensive. My wife, who is a big fan of the real Creed GIT, says she can't tell them apart.
