Kent BK4
Cella soap
Merkur HD
Fresh Dorco 301 blade

Haven't used the HD in a while and the chrome finish was a nice contrast to today's impenetrably cloudy skies here in NE Illinois. The forced-air heating is slowing removing the indoor humidity and so I went with the Cella, which always delivers a slick, protective lather and has never dried out my skin.

An excellent two pass shave called for Krampert's Finest Bay Rum.
