Prep - Hot Towel, Simpson's Shave Cream
Razor- Muhle '11 R41
Blade - Astra S/P
Brush- New Forest Tubby 1 Finest
Soap- P-160
Cold Rinse/ Witch Hazel/ RazoRock Aftershave Wax

underestimated the R41... a bit of a harsh shave. The Tubby and the P-160 were an excellent combo though...

Shave Secret preshave oil
Becker scuttle
Somerset Simpson Chubby 3 Manchurian (33/60)
Aramis shaving soap (vintage) in an Old Spice mug
Wilkinson Sticky
Wilkinson London Bridge (1)
Creed Green Irish Tweed aftershave balm

A great shave. Loading the big CH3 with soap in the mug was kind of tricky, requiring me to squeeze the knot together and rotate the brush on its axis, but it worked. The London Bridge is a fantastic blade. And I skipped the balm.

Sunday morning:

Jagger Georgian brush
Taylor almond shave cream
Schick Krona razor
Shark blade
Taylor Shave Shop aftershave

I like this Taylor though I don't use it often, it is very potent for an aftershave. So much projection in fact I decided not to go to early Church service (which would have started two hours after the AS application) after being informed the scent carried all the way from the kitchen where I was standing to the front parlor of the house. Nice scent though, I'll probably relegate it to cologne use.

Was a todal slug today....but I DID shave.
Gillette Model #58 & Gillette 'Swede'
Simpson Duke #2 Best
Trumpers Sandalwood shave cream ( tube )
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Taylors Sandalwood

This is one of the two creams I picked up in Sarasota yesterday. It's excellent; pretty much like the tubed Trumper creams of yore. I thoroughly enjoyed the shave.

Squire, Yeah, there are some scents that I deliberately buy in the A/S version even though I use them only as cologne, as the 'cologne' strength is more powerful than I care for....or the A/S is almost as potent so why spend the extra money? Taylors fall into this catagory for me. I now have two bottles of their Sandalwood A/S that I use as cologne and it is potent enough. Hammam Bouquet is another one like that for me and Knize Ten as well.
