Thater 24mm 4125 2-Band
Tim's Soap Old-School Lime
Edwin Jagger DE89 Barley
Personna Med Prep day #4
Homemade Lime Tonic a/s
Guerlain Vetiver EDT spray

Every shave is good these days, but I don't love the Thater brush. I keep it as my token badger, but I'm not sure it's even suited to that for me anymore.

Tim
