Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Stubby 3 Porcelain Finest (26/54)
Hemingway Accoutrements shaving cream
Weber PH/Stork Advoco Titanium
Wilkinson Light Brigade (7)
Hemingway Accoutrements aftershave

An excellent shave in my bathroom, A Clean, Well Lighted Place. The brush is a favorite, with less backbone and softer tips than some of the other Finests. This shaving cream is one of my few modern ones, and it makes wonderful lather. The razor head paradoxically has less friction but is less smooth than the ARC and DLC.

Wednesday AM 2018-10-10

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Stubby 3XXL Ivory Finest (33/52)
Crabtree & Evelyn for Men shaving soap (vintage)
Delta Echo Feather AS-D2/Wolfman Darwin
Wilkinson Light Brigade (9)
Lagerfeld Classic aftershave (vintage)
Floris Rose Geranium EdT (vintage)

Despite its knot size and density, this brush has relatively soft backbone and very soft tips. Surprisingly, the slender Darwin handle is not very slippery when it is wet, and it paired well with the Feather. And the light, "green" Floris, applied to pulse points, complements the complex Lagerfeld aftershave very nicely.

Razor: British Flare-Tip Rocket
Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (55)
Soap: Proraso White plus a small squirt of Skintimate Moisturising Shave Gel
Brush: vintage-ish boar of unknown brand
Post Shave: Alum bock, cold water rinse, Mennen Skin Bracer.

The frankensoap did not suck. I dislike either of those components individually, but together I get better lather structure (for lack of a better term) than with the gel alone, and better slickness than Proraso White alone.

I am trying to see if I can take the GSB to 100 shaves, which I have only done with an Astra SP before.
