Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Beehive Ivory Finest (24/50)
Roger & Gallet l'Homme shaving soap (vintage)
Delta Echo Feather AS-D2/UFO Titan Fine
Personna Super Platinum Chrome (17)
Roger & Gallet l'Homme aftershave (vintage)

This brush has less backbone and softer tips than most of my other smaller Finests. I wasn't really fond of the R&G fragrance initially, but it has grown on me, and now I look forward to using it. The blade is still sharp and smooth, but I am not yet convinced that it is the same blade as the 74 Tungsten.

Saturday AM 2018-11-10

Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney Emillion 2 Porcelain-Jade Finest (26/54)
Floris Verbena shaving soap (tallow)
Weber DLC/Wave
Personna Super Platinum Chrome (20)
Ralph Lauren Polo aftershave

Excellent. This soap seems to be underappreciated. Like all the other classic tallow-based Floris soaps, it makes fantastic lather. But I suspect that its lemon-green fragrance isn't as popular as the more traditional cologne-type ones. It complements the aftershave very nicely.
