Pre-shave: Hot Shower
Brush: P&C LE Platypus shaving brush
Soap/Cream: APR / Noble Otter TEXAUS shaving soap
Razor: Gillette NEW head on TSW Bren handle OR a cheese grater
Blade: Gillette Super Thin (3)
Post-shave: APR / Noble Otter TEXAUS splash
Fragrance: N/A

The razor pictured below MAY be the one I used this morning OR I may have grabbed a cheese grater when shaving my neck. Not quite sure which ... :confused:

Razor: Wolfman WR2 1.25 SB
Blade: Wilkinson Sword (7)
Brush: Razorock Plissoft
Soap: Barrister and Mann Seville
Aftershave: Osma alum & Tallow + Steel Sicily splash

Great shave with reliable products. Razor, blade and soap performed as expected without issue. I'm getting close to finishing Seville and the T+S splash, but I expect to get at least 8 more shaves from the soap and 2-3 from the splash. My tub of Seville is in the older Glissant base, however, with enough water it's more than enough to get the job done. My 365 day no soap purchase break ends in just over two weeks. There's quite a few soaps in consideration but at the top of the list are Tabac, SV, Stirling, Whispers From The Woods, and Squadron Soap. Also in consideration are the new bases form US artisans such as Wholly Kaw Siero, Zingari Man Sego , Ariana and Evans Kaizen, and Declaration Grooming Milksteak. However, given issues with international shipping I might hold off until a later time. The high price of these new bases are another factor. However, my curiosity will most likely get the better of me and I'll most likely buy all four.

He would have missed that anyway, unless someone told him. Not exactly sure what we're accomplishing by restricting access to the BST for new members..
Not so sure he’d have missed it. He saw my ad last week no problems. But I agree with the system that requires new members should have to wait a short period to see the BST threads.

Yeah, I can definitely see the BST threads. Still figuring out how to navigate to the new posts + latest content easily. Think I’ve got it figured out now. Just wasn’t paying attention to the BST posts on that day. TSW have the blue 3one6 for $150, and my birthday is coming up...So who knows.... 🥳
