Feather blades. I had been using Shark Saloon half blades (I'm only recently getting into DE's, and I still prefer shavettes), and I thought that was the best it could get. Then I won a tuck of Feathers in a PIF. Holy smokes, they cut through my beard like a laser beam through warm butter. Now my go-to blades. Just ordered a lot of 50 on Amazon.
My first Simpson - a Somerset Chubby 3 Super two-band. When I bought it, I didn't even know what 2-band hair was (I had only ever seen three-band), but when it showed up, I said, "Oh...now this is something special." It's a beast of a brush that I barely use any more, but I'll never unload it. It's too special to me. Ironically, I later acquired a CH3 Manchurian (also Somerset) that I didn't like nearly as well, and later sold.

I had a short wait for my DE89, but I had my Tweezerman badger brush and Proraso green soap. Used all my traditional wetshaving products with a Mach 3 and had my best shave ever up to that point. From that point I knew that I was going to be happy with shaving.
