For me, it was
- Vintage Gillette Deluxe on a Weber Bulldog handle
- Polsilver Super Iridium blade
- Barbiere di Figaro Classico Soap
- Thayer's Unscented Witch Hazel, followed by a micro-drop of Captain's Choice Bay Rum.
- Floid aftershave balm.

No nicks, no runs, no errors. Hopefully a good omen.

I decided to start the year on a traditional note with Gillette and Clubman. I put a new Polsilver SI in the Slim and lathered up with the new Stirling Clubman. Great razor, great blade, great soap, great shave! I finished with Pinaud Clubman. A great shave to start off the year.

Today was my second ever straight razor shave, with the first one being yesterday.

I used my Ralf Aust 5/8, with a Simpsons Duke 3 Best brush and Barrister & Mann Cheshire soap.
