Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime

Blade: Astra Keramik*
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE Two Band*
Soap: Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet (tallow formula)*

My weekly nostalgia shave, using mostly items that are no longer in production (indicated by asterisks). My shave was great–these items may be out of production, but they are definitely not forgotten.

Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium
Brush: Vie-Long Beehive Horse
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat
Scuttle: Moss Scuttle

An excellent shave. The PJ1 is a fine small brush, with very soft tips. The blade seems to have smoothed out somewhat.
