Noxzema Protective Shave,
Semogue 1305 Boar Bristle Shaving Brush,
D.R. Harris Twenty Nine,
Gillette 7'O Clock New Made in England,
Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) 2nd x,
Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Kolonya Klasik Limon,
Cien Men Hydro Care,
Myrsol "Don Miguel 1919" After Shave.


Brush and soap:
Semogue 1305 Boar Bristle Shaving Brush and D.R. Harris Twenty Nine:
Noxzema Protective Shave used this morning as my scalp is a bit sensitive. Generally I don't notice much use for preshave products, but in this situation it soothes some and gives some cooling. Then with the Semogue 1305 Boar Bristle Shaving Brush a nice layer of D.R. Harris Twenty Nine foam and the shaving could start again.
Blade and razor:
The Gillette Nacet Stainless for the 2nd time. The Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) has a nice smooth and comfortable cut, which is good. The Gillette 7'O Clock New Made in England with the Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) is a very user-friendly combo, so fine. Result BBS.
Finally, refreshing with Eyüp Sabri Tuncer Kolonya Klasik Limon, some Cien Men Hydro Care and Myrsol "Don Miguel 1919" After Shave. This Myrsol remains for me a somewhat indeterminate smell, which I do not particularly like. In itself, nothing wrong with it, but there is an undertone in the scent that appeals to me less, a slight putrefaction(?).

I used a herold adjustable strop with chrome oxide for the grelot. The razor doesn't feel overly sharp, but after the first pass there was only need for some touch up.
