If I were to chose . . .
I would choose the Filarmonica 13 Doble Temple square point . . .
Straight Razor Design's 3-in. English Bridal Strop . . .
Heinrich L. Thater's 24 mm. silver tip brush . . .
Geo F. Trumper's rose shave cream . . .
John Allen's Slick Water pre-shave . . .
Straight Razor Design's mother earth lather bowl . . .
Sitting atop the classic-style pewter shave mug filled with hot water . . .
A healthy sweep of alum block . . .
A refreshing splash of cold water . . .
Spiked with the brush of an ice cube . . .
Followed by a modest touch of Trumper's Coral Skin Food . . .
And a gentle slap of Trumper's Spanish Leather aftershave . . .
Ah, but it's only 3 a.m., with 3:45 hours to go . . .
