Years ago most guys just had one set-up they would use for every shave. One razor, one brush, one soap. If you had to choose one set-up to use what would be your one set-up?

Mine would be my AlumiGoose V1 on a Weber Wave handle with a Feather Pro blade and my Muhle STF 25mm brush, and a shave stick of Mystic Water or La Toja soap. I could be happy with that.

Not for me.

I have too many great products, to have a favourite setup.

Signs011 , however, if I had to do so, it would be my standard set-up: Weber DLCs + custom handles, Mystic Water soaps, 2-Band brushes, unrefined shea butter and bergamot/vetiver EO. Shy

This is hard....

- A Blackbird razor w/Polsilver SI

- I cannot possibly choose a favorite brush, so I will say Chubby 2 synthetic because it always performs flawlessly, and will last forever.

- A Stirling sheep soap.

- Stirling Gentleman AS

At this moment, I don't have a favorite set-up. A while ago, I had. That's because I'm using different SE razors with different blades and different soaps each time. I'm experimenting somehow. So, I'd say I have several favorites. I just can't decide a single favorite. So many products with great performance and soaps with amazing scents that it's difficult for me to choose one of each.

A synthetic 24 extra soft brush, a nice smelling cream or a shaving stick, a razor with a cutting blade and an aftershave that will awake memories.

That's all it takes folks .
