Friday, November 2nd

Razor: iKon Bulldog OC
Blade: Polsilver Super Iridium
Brush: Simpson Douglas
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Tabula Rasa Dark Lavender
Scuttle: Bill Bowl
A/S: Mr. Taylor

The plan was to use Tabula Rasa Tea Tree but after searching my stocks, I could not find it. :blush: No matter...I used the Dark Lavender instead and enjoyed an excellent shave. A splash of Mr. Taylor and I am ready for this crisp fall day.

Saturday, November 3, 2012

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: Edwin Jagger Chatsworth
Blade: Rapira Swedish Supersteel
Brush: Simpson Colonel X2L Best
Cream: Klar Kabinett
A/S: Dickinson’s Witch Hazel/La Toja Classic Balm

Excellent shave. For me, the Rapira is a little "rougher" than my favorite blades, but the end result always seems to be quite good.
