Saville Row 3118
Speick Shave Stick
Gillette disposable twin blade
Mennen Skin Bracer AS

On the road but forgot to mail DE blades ahead. Good shave but I can see why these things (multiblade cartridges) have become the norm. There is little need to concentrate on technique. Easy. Not as satisfying, but easy.

Dave, I realized the same thing about the "no technique needed" with the BIC Sensitives. Completely no satisfaction from the shaves they give me.

Gillette Model #58 & LB Wilkinson blade
Omega boar
Truefitt's Almond shave cream
D R Harris's Pink A/S
Floris's Original Gentlemen's Cologne

Not quite as good a shave today. I think I didn't use quite enough cream and so, by the third pass the lather was getting a mite thin. With this brush I find I need quite a bit a cream and there's less margin for error in that department. Still, it came out alright, pretty much.
