Thursday:

Gillette Model #58 & Gillette 'Swede'
Simpson Duke #2 Best
D R Harris's Rose shave cream
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Trumpers Spanish Leather

With this shave cream I keep decreasing the amount I put in the lather bowl....and it's still more than I need. Very concentrated stuff.

Homemade frankincense & myrrh preshave oil
Schwarzweisskeramik XL scuttle
Somerset Simpson Polo 14 Manchurian (34/70)
Crabtree & Evelyn Sweet Almond Oil shaving cream (vintage)
Feather AS
Super-Max Titanium (4)

An excellent shave, despite the blade beginning to be slightly dull. No other brush feels quite like an old Manchurian.
