Monday, November 5, 2012

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: 1967 Gillette Slim Adjustable*
Blade: Super Iridium*
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE Two Band*
Soap: Penhaligon’s Blenheim Bouquet*
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel/G.F. Trumper Marlborough Splash*

Another excellent shave using some items that are no longer in production (indicated by asterisks). I have a special fondness for the Slim, and it is at its best for me when paired with a Super Iridium or the newer (and still in production) Polsilver Super Iridium.

Monday AM 11-05-2012

Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Becker scuttle
Rooney Faux Horn 3/2 Finest (24/54)
Penhaligon's Lords shaving cream (vintage)
Schick Krona
Schick Plus Platinum (5)
Thayer's witch hazel
Penhaligon's Lords cologne (vintage)

Another great shave. The brush and cream are fantastic together. The Krona turned out to be a very mild razor, perhaps even more so than my Sticky, especially with a well-used blade. Tomorrow I'll try it with a new blade.
