Lather: Col Conks Bay Rum shaving soap
Brush: Prosaro boar brush

Quite excited about todays shave, since it was the first test with the Feather Popular and the Col Conk soap. Got a goad lather going after a little work, still can’t quite place the scent though; it reminds me of something I can’t put my finger on. The razor is very lightweight and seems plenty mild – good shave, even the spot under my right ear. Looking forward to using the Popular again, maybe paired with my slant bar.
