SE SOTD- What was your tool of choice today?

Try it you may like it...
Razor: Blackland Sabre L2 (face) and L1 (neck)
Blade: GEM PTFE (9)
Brush:Rudy Vey Group Buy Finest
Soap: Wickham 1912 Shamrock Tweed
Post: Thayers WH Aloe
Aftershave: Gillette Cool Wave

The Shave: I have two areas (L/R collar line) that swirl and can get irritation, so I have experimented with limiting passes there. Today I tried something different. I did 3 WTG passes with Sabre L1 on the neck for DFS with zero irritation. Sabre L2 everywhere else for its typical amazing shave.

First use of Wickham Soap and it was pretty easy to dial in. Really nice scent and performed well.
Enjoy your day.
