Ach Brito Glyce preshave soap
Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle
Somerset Simpson Astor Best (22/50)
Taylor of Old Bond Street Lavender shaving cream
Wilkinson Sticky
Wilkinson Sword (cryogenically tempered) (2)
Woods of Windsor aftershave balm (vintage)

A pretty good shave. I really like the Astor, just as much as but for different reasons than the LE Astor in super badger. The cream burned some again. And the Sword blade, while perhaps having great longevity, just isn't as smooth for me as vintage Wilkinsons. The balm stung a little but was light and eventually soothing.

Shave of the Day (SOTD) Saturday September 22, 2012
[Image: SOTD-09222012.jpg]
Prep: Brush soaking in hot water, face wash with Noxzema Triple Clean, warm shower
Razor: Cadet TP-26 Closed Comb
Blade: Shark Super Stainless
Brush: Semogue 620 Boar
Soap: Lea Sensetive Skin
AS: English Leather
Post: Cold Water Rinse, Double Splash Of Aftershave

Today's shave it with products that any wet shaver can easily afford. The total cost of all products pictured is less than many would pay for one razor.

The Cadet TP-26 Closed Comb is virtually identical to the R89/DE89 head. Combine that with the weight of the solid brass handle and it really out performs it.

Although Sharks are one of the least expensive blades that you can buy, I find them to be one of the most enjoyable. Sharp, smooth, great whisker reduction and irritation free.

My love of Semogue Boar's I can blame on Brian (SharpSpine) and Johnny. For me they are everything I look for in a good brush.

Lea has become one of my favorite brands of shaving creams, both this and the mentholated will always be part of my rotation. The lather which is produced rivals that of many more costing two to three times the amount.

English Leather although inexpensive smells and performs great. Every time I put it on, I get a "you smell great" from my wife. That is enough for it to always remain part of my rotation.
