Rooney 3/1 Super
D.R. Harris Sandalwood Shave Soap
Moss Scuttle
Mühle R89 razor
Dorco ST301 blade
Lea After Shave splash

The Harris Sandalwood SS was so good I used it two days in row.
The Lea is similar to the TOBS No. 74 Victorian Limes but less potent and shorter lived, hence the lower price.

Wade & Butcher Bow Razor, 9/16 Full Hollow, Spike Point

Wade & Butcher. The old and very dear Wade & Butcher. Despite its age, this razor still proves to give a superior performance and an excellent shave. I am also liking PannaCrema Nostalgia Shaving Soap very much, a very good Italian soap, not to mention its smell - vaguely recalling my beloved Bay Rum - to which I added a generous splash of Myrsol Agua De Limon. Very refreshing!
  • Pre-Shave: Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Pre-Shave Oil
  • Soap: PannaCrema Nostalgia Shaving Soap
  • Brush: Wilkinson Bristle Brush
  • Bowl: Gerby Bowl
  • Strop: Mastro Livi Loom Strop and Hand Palm
  • Razor: Wade & Butcher Bow Razor, 9/16 Full Hollow, Spike Point
  • Post-Shave: Umbrian Extra Virgin Oil
  • After Shave: Myrsol Agua De Limón Aftershave
