One brush,razor,soap/cream,after-shave,blade-type.

You wake up and all of your shaving stuff has disappeared. But there is a coupon for a free brush, razor, cream or soap, and a 100 pack of any brand of blades.
That do you choose?
As of now this is what I would choose based off of experience.

Brush: DSCosmetic Brush with a Tuxedo Synthetic Knot
Razor: Merkur 34G
Soap: Cella (the big Brick)
Blade: Gillette Wilkinson Sword (China)
Almost same setup I started with, too many years ago. Water Pre-Shave, Gillette Sim (still use it), Astra SP blades, Rubber Set brush (or E.J. Badger), Vintage Old Spice soap (or replaced by Cella) Old Spice or Lucky Tiger Bay Rum after shave
Brush: Zenith B19
Razor: Rockwell 6S Jet Black
Soap: Williams Mug Shave Soap
Blade: Dorco Prime STP-301
Brush: Parker WNST Silvertip Badger Shave Brush with walnut handle
Razor: Parker Variant
Soap: Proraso Red
Blade: Shark SS or the new Parker Premium Platinum


Razor: Wolfman WR1/WRH2 handle
Blade: Nacet
Brush: Simpson’s Tulip 2 super
Soap: Haslinger’s schafmilch (tallow)

Tough choice! :a14: :a14:
Brush: Medium sized Shavemac badger with good backbone and soft hair
Razor: Fatboy
Soap: MWF
Blade: Nacet

I can think of about three different kits that would make me quite content.
Oooooh I hate when people take my stuff even when they leave coupons, but I'll play!

Razor: Maggard V3A / MR1
Blade: Voskhod
Soap: Palmolive Stick
Brush: Semogue 1250
Brush: Semogue SOC Taj boar
