Friday AM 2018-05-18

Georgetown Pottery G20 scuttle
Rooney 3/3 Ivory Finest (26/60)
Floris Elite shaving cream (vintage)
RazoRock Mamba/UFO Titan Fine
Wilkinson Light Brigade (9)
Floris Elite aftershave (vintage)

This is one of the great creams. And I believe the aftershave eventually was reformulated: I tried the modern version some years back when first getting back into wet shaving and found it to be harsh and metallic, but this vintage one is quite nice, complex and mellow.

Today's SOTD change from the routine was the soap. It was one of Tim's hand crafted custom soaps for which I am truly grateful. Thanks Tim!
