Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Merkur Long Handled Progress
Blade: Rapira Swedish Supersteel
Brush: Vulfix 2006 Pure Badger
Cream: Palmolive Italian Menthol

Great shave. Our unseasonably warm weather called for some cooling menthol, and the Palmolive cream and Alt Innsbruck answered that call very nicely.

Thursday, October 25th

Razor: Merkur Futur
Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium
Brush: Shavemac Beehive Prototype (Silver Tip)
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Sultans Shaving Cream (Island Breeze)
Scuttle: Bill Bowl
A/S: La Toja Classic Scent

I used a few new products for this morning's shave -a Shavemac Prototype Beehive brush and Sultans Island Breeze shaving cream. I was very pleasantly surprised with the Sultans Shaving cream. It whipped up into a nice thick, slick and stable lather and I enjoyed an excellent shave. My only complaint has to do with the scent (a bit synthetic) but that is a YMMV issue. The cream itself is excellent.

The Shavemac brush did a fine job whipping up lather but I did have a little difficulty holding the handle. Although I did not drop the brush, it felt like a distinct possibility throughout the shave. I think it is just a matter of getting used to the ergonomics. Time will tell.

I enjoyed an excellent shave followed by a splash of La Toja. I am now ready for the day. -Czech & Speake, H.L. Thater, Mergress, Rocnel, Boellis Panama,Castle Forbes, Asylum Shave Works and more.

Shave Secret preshave oil
Becker scuttle
Somerset Simpson Colonel X2L Best (22/51)
Floris No. 89 shaving soap (vintage)
Feather AS
Balaka (1)
Floris No. 89 splash aftershave (vintage)

A good shave. The old shaving soap is marvelous, and the Colonel whipped it up well. The Balaka, which I had received free with something I bought on eBay and had never used before, was quite rough and seemingly somewhat dull from the git go. Not a good blade for 007!
