    The title kind of says it all! If it's your birthday, post your SOTD here instead of the weekly thread.

    Now, don't just post any old SOTD. You know and I know, and they all know, that your birthday is a special day, and you will (not "might" ... WILL) treat yourself to something special. (If SWMBO allows you to have something that expensive! :w00t:)

    And by all means, if Aqua Velva and Williams Mug is what floats your boar-brush boat, then fly at 'er ... but I'm kind of hoping for some serious razor porn, soap and cream porn, aftershave porn ... well, you get the idea.

    So ... who's birthday is it, anyhow? :biggrin:

  6. I usually don't come in this forum very often, but I'm glad I did today. My birthday is this Friday, but an early birthday present showed up in my mailbox today. A shiny new Merkur 39C Barber Pole Slant Bar from Lee's Safety Razors. I was amazed, I just ordered it this past Friday morning hoping to get it in time to use for my birthday and it arrived today. I can't wait to shave with it!
     
  7. My Birthday was Yesterday and I didn't shave, but I am this evening before going out for dinner to a local and fantastic Italian place.

    French green clay mask
    45 minutes in the tub with a good book
    Full kyles Prep
    SCS New Spice shower gel
    Aristocrat w/crystal
    Simpson CH1 Best
    TGQ Lavender Soap
    SCS Lavender ASM
    Penhaligon's LP#9

    No picture I'm afraid camera batteries are dead but I will tyr and remember to stick one up when they come out of the charger.
     
  8. I had my birthday shave this morning. I got my barberpole slant a couple of days ago and thought I had a good feel for it. Yesterday I got cocky and put a corked Feather in there, and the Feather did what it always does, whether in a Futur, HD, or now a slant. It tore me up, I got all the exact same nicks and weepers and irritation in all the exact same spots the I always get with a Feather, regardless of razor. So todays shave had to be scaled back to single pass with minor touch up to try and allow my skin to heal some. No razor porn today unfortunately.

    My setup for today
    Merkur Futur chrome razor and matching silvertip brush
    Crystal blade
    Nancy Boy replenishing shave cream
    Nancy Boy replenishing after shave balm

    Even with only a single pass with the grain I got a decent presentable shave.

    I gave my #4 ... http://badgerandblade.com/vb/showthread.php?t=34006&highlight=zowada ... it's innagural shave. (Mine had the scales replaced with lacewood, like in the stock photo from Classicshaving, bleow.) I've been saving it for just this occasion. TOBS St James, Vulfix 377, the usual suspects rounded up. (Turns out the Zowada will need a bit of work on the hones, but hey, what a great razor!)

  15. My birthday was 8/23. I was going to go with something fancy, but it was a hot day, and it was steamy, so I made a last minute switch to Proraso. Super slick, and the menthol felt great.

    C&E Super Badger Brush
    Proraso Cream
    '69 Fatboy with a fresh Feather
    Nivea Energy ASB
