Razor: Wilkinson Sticky
Blade: Rapira Swedish Steel
Brush: H.L. Thater Stout 1
Pre-Shave: Musgo Real Glyce Lime
Soap: Trumper Coconut Oil Soap
A/S: Acca Kappa Cedro Splash

I would really like to see one of the current razor manufacturers make a Wilkinson Sticky clone. It is the perfect razor for me offering a combination of efficiency and smoothness that I normally do not get from a TTO. I had an outstanding shave today. A splash of the Cedro and I am ready for "boot camp".
