    This would be my pick:

    Double edge: Merkur HD 34C
    Blades: Gillette
    Brush: Trumpers best badger
    Pre-shave: I just lather and put a hot towel over the top, so I'd just bring a towel to use.
    Soap: Tabac
    Cream: Penhaligons Endymion
    Nick repair: Some sort of styptic, I think mine is a GFT one.
    Astringent: I dont use one
    Balm: Trumpers Sandalwood Skin Food
    Aftershave: Trumpers Spanish Leather
    Incidental: Can I bring another afterhshave? If I can, I'd bring Penhaligons Endymion.

    Nice thread Obie, you've lured me out of hiding.

    Razor: Aristocrat Junior
    Blades: Gillette "Swedes"
    Brush: New Forest 2211
    Soap: one of Nanny's soft soaps, let's say Yushu (juniper berry)
    Cream: Taylor's sandalwood
    Aftershave: Givenchy Gentleman

    Nb. Rather than an aftershave, I might prefer witch hazel and a cologne. I don't suppose that's allowed, but if it were, said cologne would be Acqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta.
