Monday, October 22, 2012

Pre-shave soap: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Razor: 1956 Gillette Red Tip Superspeed*
Blade: Astra Keramik*
Brush: Simfix Grosvenor LE Two Band*
Soap: P.160 Tipo Morbido*
A/S: Dickinson's Witch Hazel/G.F. Trumper Marlborough Splash*

A very close, but comfortable shave with some shaving items that are no longer in production (indicated by asterisks). The Astra Keramik is quite a nice blade and works very effectively in the Red Tip, while the P.160 has a nice scent and always performs well. The Marlborough splash, the only splash I own that is out of production, provided a very pleasant finish.

Ach Brito Glyce preshave soap
Dirty Bird 1.5 scuttle
Somerset Simpson Duke 3 Pure (25/51)
D.R. Harris Marlborough shaving soap
Wilkinson Sticky
Personna 74 (eight)
Avon Tribute splash aftershave

A great shave. I think the Marlborough lathers better than other Harris soaps, for some reason. The Personna probably would be good for another couple shaves, but I'm not going to push it.
