Gillette Model #58 & Gillette Annesy blade
Plisson #12 HMW
Trumpers Limes hard shaving soap
D R Harris's A/S Milk
Penhaligon's English Fern

These days, the Trumpers hard shave soap scent reminds me more of the Taylors No 74 Lime cologne/aftershave than it does anything else. I never really connected the two scents until recently.

On the road with my travel rig.

It may not be fancy, but it gets the job done.

Wow, Mike! I didn't know Feather made such a razor.

Sunday Night:

Edwin Jagger DE87 razor
Perma-Sharp blade

Semogue 2015 silvertip badger brush
Art of Shaving Lemon

Lather made in a bowl, as always.

Dickinson's Witch Hazel, blended with a bit of lather and massaged into the skin.

This is my first shave with a Perma-Sharp blade (one of the "good" ones, from a cardboard tuck), which worked about the same as my other favorites. I cleaned off the wax dots with a Q-tip and acetone.
