iKon S3S (OC and SB all in one)
TOBS 'bulbous' handle in super (been using one for around 20 years...why switch now)
MdC (I think it's considered a 'cream')
Prairie Creations faux-Williams, peppermint soap (a heretofore unrecognized 'giant')
Proraso pre/post (ooh the menthol)
Osage (used to use it exclusively for around 15 years, so I know it can be done if necessary)
Pen's BB (not really an EDT guy, but since you're giving the choice...)
Personna Lab Blue (best one I've found so far)

...anyone else get the idea that I like 'mentholly' type products ?

I would like to say that my answer is in my SOTD, but here goes:

Razor - Feather Artist Club DX (non-folding)
Brush - hmmm, probably Rooney Emilion 1 in Super
Cream - soap guy, but I'd probably keep some Proraso for nostalgia sake
Soap - any soap made by D.R. Harris (except Naturals)
Pre Shave - water, but the Proraso Pre-Barba would be a close second
A/S - another tricky one because my answer would be "the last one I used" but probably Pre de Provence
EdT - this one's easy because I think Hermes Terre d'Hermes is incredible
Blade - at this point in my A/C journey, Kai Titan Mild
