This will be fun Smile. Edwin Jagger DE89Bl with feathers, my Morris & Forndran, Mitchells Wool Fat and Floid Black. This would probably change if you asked me tomorrow as I already want to change my answer just looking around my shave den, no, nope, this is it....no wait...yes definitely this combination....I think....maybe. Hmm

Being stranded means sooner or later you are going to run out of blades, so my list would be the following.

Ralf Aust 5/8 Straight Razor
Paddle Strop
Honing Stone
Plisson Synthetic Brush
Mitchell's Wool Fat
Floid Blue

I hadn't thought about taking the straight approach.. Good call Johnny and others..!! Probably because I don't own one yet.. Still worried I'd bleed myself dry

Brush- palm fibers pounded with rock and glued into driftwood handle with fish eye glue.

Soap- coconut oil extruded between two pieces of driftwood under rock weight and pressed into half coconut shell decorated with seashells.

Aftershave- Tahitian vanilla bean in a fermented fish eye base and stored in Japanese glass fishing net float.
