Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Rooney 1/2 Faux Horn Finest (24/50)
Floris Verbena shaving soap (tallow)
Wolfman WR1-OC/Triad Polished-Satin Diamond Titanium
Polsilver Super Iridium (10)
Lagerfeld Classic aftershave (vintage)

The old Floris soap makes wonderful lather. I think it is underappreciated, probably because verbena is not a well-known or liked fragrance. I used the last of the Lagerfeld aftershave. It was good, but I don't think I'll get more.

Pre: Dalan Glycerine Soap With Almond Oil
Razor: Gillette Aristocrat Junior #48
Blade: Gillette Stainless (3)
Soap: Saponificio Varesino - Felce Aromatica
Brush: DS Cosmetic 24mm Flattop Synthetic
Post: Barts - Amber & Moroccan Jasmine​




This set-up bit me very bad earlier in the week; two deep cuts which meant I had to use cartridges for three days until they had healed. Rather than give up I tried again. I'd not used the #48 for a while and had basically forgotten that with a too steep angle it bites. Took my time today and got the angle right which gave a drama free DFS. The flattop brush is interesting to say the least. This handle and knot combination is not available off the shelf, so I bought both separately and assembled myself. A slight change in technique is required with this knot for face lathering; slightly more gentle than usual for me. I'll keep this brush for the sake of variety, but probably not buy a similar knot again.
