    Bath Soap - Substituting in Pre de Provence Sandalwood (quad-milled)
    Razor - Ralph Lauren Safari Collection
    Blade - Personna Twin II Plus (with lubrication strip) *Fresh Cartridge (EDIT)
    Shave Brush - Ralph Lauren Safari Collection fitted with Synthetic Knot manufactured by Frank Shaving (replaced by jimjo1031)
    Hair Brush - Ralph Lauren Safari Collection
    Shave Soap - Ralph Lauren Safari
    Shave Mug - Ralph Lauren Safari Collection
    Aftershave - Ralph Lauren Safari
    Post Shave Balm - Ralph Lauren Safari

    I'm doing the vintage set, but will substitute in the Pre de Provence Sandalwood bath soap.

    ***EDIT - 2 passes + targeted clean up. BBS. No nicks. No irritation. Really great shave. Haven't used a cartridge in a while and apparently using the techniques I use with the DE's works great with the cartridges razors too. I love the Safari scent. Great stuff.
