Brush - Omega 80265
Soap - Palmolive Stick
Razor - Yaqi Cobbed/Souplex Bakelite Handle
Blade - Lord Classic (5)
Post - Witch Hazel/RSC Balm
AS - Eyup Sabri Tobacco

The Lord Classic SS was an absolutely superb match for the razor, I'd struggled to find blades that worked well with the razor but this one is a very good match. The lather today was a thick fluffy cloud of slick goodness with a great cushion for the blade to glide across my face. One of the better shaves I've had for a while.

Have a good Friday chaps!

Good shave today. One small nick on the chin, due to carelessness. The alum took care of it, though. All else went fine. I haven’t used the AC in a wee while; and it was good to pick it up again.

Pre: Pears Original Transparent
Brush: Wilkinson sword
Soap: P&B Star Noir
Razor: Feather AS-D2
Blade: NOS Perma Sharp Supreme(3)
Post shave: Alum Block, cold water splash, homemade Witch Hazel withTea Tree and Eucalyptus
Balm: Muhle sea Buckthorn sample
A/S: Old Spice Classic

Cheeky 2 pass shave, without any issues. i just seem to get on with the Feather, the NOS blade is still working just fine and has plenty left in it.
The Soap, Post shave sample and aftershave all courtesy of @RussellR5555. All enjoyable software to use although, the jury is still out on the soap scent, i tried the £1.50 Wilkinson Sword brush from Wilkos and it worked up a great lather in the Giles bowl, hey, it worked well for what it cost. Post shave cream from Muhle, nice enough with a nice scent and a splash of Old spice classic.
Basically a Pre shave for tonight as i will not have time after work.
Enjoy the rest of the day & evening all
