Pure badger 20mm knot from The Golden Nib in vintage Ever-Ready handle
Williams Mug Soap, with a few drops of KMF unscented.
Super Adjustable, O-2, set at 4
Gillette Super Thin blade, Thai, 2nd shave
Thayers Lemon
Body Shop Razor Relief, <2008 formula

This is my second soap experience, after VDH DeLuxe, which I'm allergic to. The Williams whips up into something that looks like lather, but not as creamy or as slick as the VDH. I tried the Williams alone, but a few drops of KMF mixed in make it much more tolerable.

Becker scuttle
Rooney 2XL in Super
T&H West Indian Lime cream (sample)
Mergress XL
Super Iridium (1)
T&H West Indian Lime balm


I'm working my way through a T&H sample pack. SWMBO really likes the West Indian Lime, but I'm not as crazy about it. Got a few nicks with the razor/blade combination; I may have to try the Iridium in my Feather AS tomorrow instead.
