I don't see much in this kit changing until my Tiki order arrives. Still going strong with the ER'14 and I can't get enough of this Plisson synth. So either the Signature or Fougère will stay active until I get to play with some new Tiki scents.

-- Tuesday--

Prep: hot water wash with Stirling bath soap
Razor: Frankenrazor made of Hallmark top plate, Fatip base plate and Ikon bulldog handle
Blade: Astra SP (2)
Brush: TGN Finest set into a WD handle
Soap: Mike's Natural Lily of the Valley
Scuttle: Georgetown Pottery G5 in Hamada glaze (used as brush scuttle)
Post: Thai Crystal deodorant alum stick and Thayers alcohol free witch hazel

Result: BBS in 3+ passes. Excellent shave. My inexpensive TGN two band finest set into WD handle brush (cost me around $30 in materials) is an amazing brush. It devoured the last of the Mike's sample and produced an excellent lather for 3+ passes and alum wash from the remainder. Just a wonderful brush at any price.
