    RazoRock‌ ‌Pre‌ ‌Barba‌ ‌Pre‌ ‌Shave‌ ‌Gel‌
    ATT Calypso Blue H2 plate / Astra‌ ‌SP
    Yaqi Moka Express 26mm 2-Band Badger
    B&M Reserve Spice Shaving Soap
    B&M Reserve Spice Aftershave Splash
    My first shave with the H2 (OC) plate was barely distinguishable from yesterday’s shave with the H1 (SB) plate -- maybe a little more efficient
    without being too aggressive. Again BBS in 2 passes, WTG & ATG.
