Georgetown G4 scuttle
Somerset Simpson Phyl 8 Butterscotch Best (24/45)
Coates LE shaving cream soap
Schick Krona
Wilkinson London Bridge (2)
Avon Deep Woods splash aftershave (vintage)

A good shave. The Coates really doesn't lather very well, but fortunately the Wilkinson blade is able to make the most of even poor lather.

Sunday AM 11-18-2012

Straight Razor Designs scuttle
Custom Genuine Ivory Chubby 1 D01 2-Band (23/47)
Floris JF shaving cream
Schick Krona
Wilkinson London Bridge (3)
4711 splash aftershave

An excellent shave. The brush handle feels great in my hand, and the D01 hair is soft but very slightly scritchy. I don't like the scent of the JF as much as that of Elite, but its lathering qualities are superb.
