Tuesday, November 15h

Razor: GIBBS Adjustable "Click Pen"
Blade: Super Iridium
Brush: Rudy Vey Beehive with D01 Knot
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Cream: Tabula Rasa Vetiver and Tangerine
A/S: Trumper Limes

It was a busy day and I did not get a chance to shave until this evening. It was worth the wait though as I took out the GIBBS adjustable for its maiden voyage. Because I had never used this razor before, I erred on the side of caution and set it at 2. I enjoyed a very smooth comfortable shave. One thing that really struck me was the audible feedback from this razor. If you think the Futur sings, you have not heard anything yet. A splash of Trumper Limes and I am ready for some TV time before bed. -Czech & Speake, Taylor of Old Bond Street, Geo F. Trumper, D.R. Harris, Kent, Edwin Jagger and More

Muhle R41/ Rapira
Thater Perspex '1'
Trumpers Sandalwood Soap
Nivea Balm

First use of the GFT soap - lovely scent, unlike (superior) to other Sandalwood renditions. Lather quality, alas, was underwhelming. Too dry.
