Brush and soap:
J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm and Martin de Candre Fougère:
Don't know how long this will last, but don't think to buy any more new soap for now. Going to finish something first. Was standing this morning with the J&T® Essen Jiamei Cosmetic imitation bristle 24 mm loading soap from the Martin de Candre Fougère jar. I've had that one for a year now, used it 4 times, and it doesn't show. Then to think, that I have 5 of those pots and 102 others, makes, that for now I will replace 2 on 1. 2 gone, then 1 new. At least that's what I'm thinking right now. Then also the of those soaps, where you hardly use anything of per shave. That will be frequent sotd's. Well this said, I must still say, that the foam was again top to use.
Blade and razor:
The Gillette Nacet Stainless (Russia) for the 5th x used.
As expected, the Gillette Nacet Stainless easily reached my 5 standard. The effective combo Fatip Grande Rutinia with the Gillette Nacet Stainless provided a smooth reduction of head and beard hair. Nicely smooth again.
Result: BBS.
Finally: Abzehk Olive edc, which leaves a nice fresh sweet scent, that goes nicely with the fern scent of the MDC. Cien Men Hydro Care on top to ensure, that the skin will last another 20 years or so and Loris E-003 Acqua Di Gio for the fougère finishing touch.
Great start to this Sunday.

The unbelievable happened: I actually did shave today, first shave, according to my notes, since June 24th.
put a fresh Voskhod in the broken Merkur 37 and had the first full three pass shave in weeks. Not sure if I look better, but it definitely feels better.
Other gear: Shavemac ShaSoc LE and ToBS Rose.

Gold dollar straight razor
FOCS + Treet carbon
Proraso alum

The straight razor didn't come shave ready. And I didn't improve the edge. It will go back to the hones. The FOCS removed the little stubble there was.
