D and D

It has been a while since I have been in the mood for a straight, but I wanted to try out my first badger brush with a really nice soap my brother sent me from Italy.
This is also the first time I have used this Ontario Cutlery Geneva, it seems to have taken a nice edge and didn't leave much for the GC 84 to finish with.

I must say I am impressed with the Acqua Di Parma, the scent is intoxicating, the performance is excellent, my face is happy.

Love the Single Ring. Hey, this shave was an ‘SR’ double. Maybe a little smoother than my ball end NDC Old Type.
 
Had a great shave today with a new to me Ever-Ready 1914 little lather catcher. Also new to me is the Tabac soap and the Treet blade. I switched the Treet out for a Gem blade but look forward to trying it in other razors. This was all a gift from a friend. I didn't ask if was ok to say where they came from but you know who you are. Thank you so much for the generous gift.
I used the JA Henkels a bit just to try to stay in practice. And to try to keep up with @Tanuki and @Rosseforp.
