Pre shave - Hot Towel, Simpson's Shave Cream
Razor - Weber ARC
Blade - Astra S/P
Brush – Duke 3
Soap - RazoRock Mudder Focker
Cold Rinse/ Witch Hazel/ RazoRock Aftershave Wax

The Weber is much better suited with the S/P on my skin....The Simpson's Shave Cream makes a fantastic Pre Shave cream, and the Mudder Focker is an absolute delight!! ;)
