Got an Omega stand with it which fits the razor and brush perfectly.
Using Col. Ichabod Conk soap, a glycerin soap, but will buy a puck of Cella Crema Sapone soon.

Edwin Jagger DE89 razor on Feather blades:
I've tried several soaps, all in my rack below:
....but the best so far is this one I recently got:
I still lose out to kotmj in terms of brushes, though. Havent got my silvertip yet.
Stuff was either bought online or (in the case of some of the soaps and one of those brushes) at discount in London.
I tell you...the first person who opens shop here in KL will make money.

The Feather blades come in these plastic cartridges, ten blades to a cartridge, and there is a slot at the back of the cartridge for used blades. That's what I use.

Had the best shave ever this morning. With minimal prep. I tried a new way of shaving this time. With the grain twice or thrice, then with progressive passes you get closer and closer in angle of attack to against the grain without actually going squarely against the grain. I find that going against the grain risks nicks, but crosswise to the grain doesn't result in a close shave. So I compromised and went in between these angles of attack. Beautiful results. No razor burn, no nicks. It does take about 10 minutes though.
