Edwin Jagger DE86 with Derby
Simpson CH1 two banded super
QCS shave cream: Mysore Sandalwood
jojoba oil with (Australian) sandalwood EO

It's hard to tell, because the Mysore sandalwood EO is mixed in with the rest of the shave cream ingredients, but my impression is that the Australian sandalwood EO is a little brighter and crisper than the Mysore (Indian) sandalwood EO, which seems to be deep, soft and mellow.

Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Portman Square Collier Row

I was in a citrus mood this morning so pulled out the Collier Row Cream/Soap. The Sticky with a once used Schick Plus Platinum blade left my face feeling smooth.

Synthetic 23m knot from The Golden Nib in my father's Surrey handle
KMF unscented cream whipped up in a mug labelled "Old Fashioned Lavender by Wrislary"
Lord "Tech" Razor, L.122
Lord Super Chrome, 1st shave. This is the blade that came with the razor.
Thayers Lemon
Body Shop Razor Relief, <2008 formula.

A quickie two-passer, just to get me through the day. Surprisingly effective and smooth on a 45-46 hr. beard growth.

I had been using this handle with a Gillette travel Tech head, but the Lord head is a bit more aggressive. I like it better than the Lord Smart Razor, their Merkur knockoff.

Little to no room to swirl the brush around or sideways as I usually do, so the lather was whipped in an up-and-down motion, like a butter churner. Not as fine bubbles, or creamy a lather, but it worked.
