Saturday, October 20th

Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium
Brush: Vie-Long Butterscotch Beehive (Silvertip)
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Boots Shave Stick (Thank you Teiste)
Scuttle: Bill Bowl
A/S: Mr. Taylor

When Teiste visited my shop in July, he brought me a Boots shave stick because he had heard I was curious about it. I had misplaced the shave stick but uncovered it yesterday when I had an arrival of additional office furniture.

The shave stick performed as intended but was unspectacular. My itch has been scratched though and I really appreciate Teiste's thoughtfulness in bringing me this stick. -Czech & Speake, Taylor of Old Bond Street, Geo F. Trumper, D.R. Harris, Kent, Edwin Jagger and More
