    Pre-shave:- Cold Water straight from the tap
    Brush:- Omega 10104 Boar 26/55mm knot
    Soap/Cream:- Stirling ~ Bergamot Lavender
    Bowl/Scuttle:- Captain's Choice
    Razor/Blade:- Gillette Ball End Tech K2 1965 / Vintage NOS Gillette Super Stainless (spoiler) #1
    Post-shave:- Thayers Witch Hazel & Tea Tree Oil / WAHL Bay Rum Aftershave Splash
    Fragrance:- Davidoff Cool Water Wave

    The British none triangle Tech is slightly more aggressive than the US triangle Tech version which surprises me a lot. Some wet shavers say the British Gillette razors are slightly more aggressive than most US Gillette razors, I'm unable to confirm or find the correct information on the world wide web.

    Sat 5th Jan.

    RazoRock Syn. 24mm
    P & B Citra Royale
    PAL Injecto-Matic de Luxe
    Schick S/S - Japan [ 3 ]
    Alcolado Glacial A/S Splash

    Another Shave with an Injecto-Matic, this one being fitted with a Japanese Schick as opposed to a Proline used yesterday. The Shave was noticeably smoother, but I found the blade not to be as effective as the Proline and the quality of finish not as good. This is a useful comparison as it would appear that the cheaper AC Blade works better for me in the PAL, compared to the pricey Japanese blade.

    Accompanied by a pack slash herd of Playmo animals in the bathroom this morning. The horses are out grazing while the dogs are “lens bugs” as we say in Norway :wink:

    B&M Seville
    Paladin Pk-47
    Mühle Rocca / Wizamet
    Myrsol Agua Balsamica

    Good shave, if a bit more blade forward than my last shaves, and pleasant scents. Finished with a few drops of Scottish Fine EdT from a sample bottle. And off we go.
