Ikon X3 slant head on a razorock handle
Feather Hi Stainless blade (2)
Ariana and Evans Summer Fig soap
Yaqi Rainbow pony knot synth
APR Restoration Serum followed by Summer Fig splash

Been enjoying the slants lately so continuing with the theme with the mild Ikon slant. Works superbly for me with the sharp feather blade. Low irritation on my sensitive skin so I'm pretty happy with that.

Prep: Valobra Glycerlanolina soap, Myrsol Emulsion
Brush: Semogue Owners Club LE 2012 Mixed Badger/Boar
Soap: Murphy & McNeil Crann Bethadh
Razor: Wolfman WR1
Blade: Vintage NOS Personna P74 (8)
Post: Thayers Cucumber Witch Hazel; APR Lavande Violette
Scent: B&M Leviathan EdT

The very fougère-influenced shave. The Crann Bethadh is a very fresh outdoors style fougère, whilst the Lavande Violette splash is a darker and more exotic variant.
Knize Forest is quite unique - pine dominant, but certainly not one dimensional.
The vintage P74 blade is still shaving beautifully on its 8th outing.

Love me some Knize. The Ten is I think an acquired taste. I loved it. But, and this hurts to say mine broke on my bathroom floor. I miss it.

I was about to ask the same question too :smug: I'm in trouble, why, I've got way too many soaps and Murphy & McNeil is really killing me.
G'day @Holiday and @SpeedyPC.

Their soaps are all very good performers for me. I have three - Crann Bethadh, Claddagh, and Cliffs of Moher.

They have been quite experimental with their bases in the short time they have been in production. They have several bases on offer - some are quite soft (think Declaration Grooming Bison tallow or CRSW Glide) and others somewhat firmer (think Cella or Wholly Kaw). I like their scents, which are generally on the fresh/clean side, and they have very good slickness. Their bases are typically Beef Tallow and Duck Fat, along with other active ingredients like Lanolin, Shea Butter, Kokum Butter and Kaolin Clay. They have some exotic bases that they do limited runs with, including (wait for it)..... Bear Tallow!

Their website has an excellent page which contains comprehensive information on both the scent profiles and the various bases of their soap offerings.
