Monday:
Gillette '40s-style Y3 Superspeed w/ Gillette Platinum Plus blade
Vulfix 2234 (reknotted)
Cella soap
Neutrogena Razor Defense balm
Terre d'Hermes EDT

Amazing, the difference between the demanding Ranger Tech and its successor, the incredibly laid-back Superspeed.

Monday evening, with a ~51-hour growth:

Omega Sapone da Barba in the tube.
Pure Badger 20mm knot from Golden Nib in vintage Ever-Ready handle
Gillette Vector handle
Personna Auto-Plus cartridge, 1st shave
Super Adjustable, Gold, P2
Gillette Spoiler, R-3, 2nd shave
Thayers Lemon
Body Shop Razor Relief

First pass for general cleanup with the Vector/Auto-Plus,
subsequent passes and touch-up with the Spoiler.

The Atra was my weapon of choice in the '70's and '80's when Wilkinson Bonded supplies became hard to find. Not a bad job with a good cream, but not as close as I can get with a good blade like the Spoiler.

Putting the wear and tear of the first pass on an Auto-plus or a Dorco 301 makes the Spoilers and NOS Wilkinson UK's last longer.
