Single Edge Sunday - What Will You Use?

We have Merkur Monday and Tech Tuesday so why not a day of the week for single edge razors.

Single Edge Sunday - for those of us who use these wonderful oft misunderstood razors.

I'll start it off, lets see what others are using on the day set aside for SE razor users

Razor/blade: Ever-Ready Streamline / GEM stainless steel PTFE coated blade
Brush/Cream: Kent BK8 / Gentleman's refinery cream - bowl lathering
AS/EDC: Clubman Musk / Caswell-Massey Jockey club

 
I used the Hydromagic Injector again, but then I was up late reading Cherryh's recent novel, and haven't been awake long (been up, but still in a zombie state, need more coffee), I cannot remember yesterday real well, just yet! I won't shave again until this evening, or if I need to go somewhere special I am not currently expecting to suddenly appear among my appointments.

P. S. Imagine that the sword handles in his back scabbards are shaped more like Streamline handles:

I can see the fun of a group of men all using similar razors on certain days. My deal is I'm usually spontaneous with my every other day razor choice (I don't shave daily). And I'm forgetful as all get-out, so I never remember Tech Tuesday and now SE Sunday.

For those that participate, have fun!
 
I'm a day late but I used a Schick G model with Schick Blade (2).Had a really great face and headshave with it too,smoother than my Schick E2 and Paul Revere models.
 
SE Sunday was accomplished with a GEM G bar, 2 passes with a carbon steel blade (5) which was usurped by a SS blade (5) because it died mid shave. Accompanied by my finest Razorock Classic lather yet, SOC brush.
