    Remember your razor is only a double edge (not a straight). I posted on this subject a year or two back, requiring a straight razor next chance I get I will resurrect the subject with the straight, too. This time let's do the double edge. Only one example of each item, please. Here is my choice:

    Double edge: Feather all stainless steel
    Blades: Feather
    Brush: Thater 24 mm.
    Pre-shave: Castle Forbes
    Soap: Martin de Candre
    Cream: Castle Forbes
    Nick repair: styptic pencil
    Astringent: alum block
    Balm: Trumper's Coral Skin Food
    Aftershave: Truefitt & Hill's Spanish Leather
    Incidental: Thayer's Super Medicated Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera

    Again, only one item per category, please. Thanks.

    Regards,

    Obie
    Double edge: Merkur 39C Slant
    Blades: Medical Personna
    Brush: Rooney 3/1
    Pre-shave: none
    Soap: Poraso
    Cream: Poraso
    Nick repair: styptic pencil
    Astringent: alum block
    Balm: Nivea without alcohol
    Aftershave: Bay Rum
    Incidental:
