Arise you shavers from your slumbers, arise you prisoners of carts
Hardware is my Merkur HD 34c
Software has to be my AOS Sandalwood cream. I love that stuff!
I think for me it would be an old navy set in the blue case, just because I am a former Navy sailor. I would also put a Toggle as the only other razor I want, but do not have.

My holy grail item would be a brush made from amber with a mosquito inside, I can get one in resin but not the same as true amber.
The one holy grail item related to wet shaving that I can't seem to find is the willpower not to order more stuff.
My own holy grail in the shaving world would be to find my "shaving nirvana" with that perfect brush, soap or cream, razor, and aftershave. That I can easily get for the rest of my life and being completely happy. So far I have found that aftershave in OS P&G would like to try the Indian version but I can easily enjoy this one and if I couldnt use Aqua Velva anymore, I dont think I would cry over it. And I have found a near "nirvana" razor in the Wilkinson Bonded but the blades even though I have a stockpile wont last a lifetime so I'm still searching for the rest. Pretty much the only reason I have AD for I'm in the search really for the one setup for me.

Rooney 1/1 best that does not shed+ a razor with good sweet spot (89s?).
I'd have to say using high performance cream. I look for creams that provide the best cushion, glide, moisturizing properties, etc. Right now my rotation is Nancy Boy Signature, Castle Forbes Lime & Lavender, and GFT Coconut. I'd like to try some QCS and AccaKappa 1869 next.
Rooney Finest 1/3
"Loric=Ernest Shackleton of SBAD" - Krona Kruiser
Gillette Double Ring '04 Razor.
DE - EJ Open Comb and or Slant, Vision 2000 (Looks like something I need to try)
Brush - EJ Silver-tip
DE Blades - Two of each so that I can say I have tried them all at least once
SR - Forget all others and make it a Tim Zowanda 5/8 Clauss Style w/ Lacewood scales, because that is just a work of art!
My holy grail shave item is..............bleah.......... I cant choose!
Proraso mixed with MWF, and my 39c.
Agree with the stainless steel r41!
