Moss Anniversary Slate scuttle with tepid water
Elite Razor Persian Jar Arizona Jade Manchurian White (28/54)
Acqua di Parma Colonia shaving cream (v.1)
Paradigm II Titanium
Wilkinson 'Light Brigade' (5)
Acqua di Genova 1853 aftershave

Another great warm morning shave.  Admittedly the cream provided little challenge, but the brush quickly made excellent lather.  It's quite heavy and feels a bit slippery when my hand is wet, so I'll have to be careful not to drop it.  The cream and Paradigm razor produced no skin irritation at all, but the aftershave still felt and smelled wonderful.

Proraso Red / Vitos Red Uberlather
Antica Barbieria Boar
Vanta Shavette
Erbe Solingen
Proraso Red Aftershave

2 pass, no prep, tepid water shave.

The Vanta arrived this morning so though I'd give it a run out, only 24 hours worth of stubble but thought what the heck, why not? The build quality is a mixed bag, the business end (all of the steel) is very nicely made with tight tolerances and a good finish but unfortunately the scales let the side down, one of the worst I've ever seen, think Gold Dollar quality... Not a big deal on a £15 razor designed for barbershops I'm sure.

Even though I've never used a shavette before the shave was sublime...But I am quite competent with a straight (if I say so myself) so that probably had something to do with it, also helps the blade corners are muted on this design. A really nice and comfortable experience, only annoyance was the need to rinse fairly often due to the small blade, other than that I highly recommend it - I'm the smoothest I've been in a while, BBS+ I would say
