My Guess... 3017

Hi guys!

I'm new as a member on BnB but not as a wet shaver and *reading Badger and Blade articles before you sleep* guy.

This is just an amazing thread motivated me to start the 3017 journey and to share it here.

My equipment is rather simple and straight forward:
-Brush: Big Bruce (the other 2 got worn off recently)
- DE89 and Merkur 34c
- 4 straight razors: Puma, One Dollar, Dovo Bismark, Wacker Rasiermesser

And now the reason for my journey - may I present you my soaps:
- Tabac (50% left, 1/3/-1/14 and after travel 2/4 - 2/9/2021)
- Cella (ca 50%, now in use, 2/10/ - ???)
- Arko
- Choco Cubano
- Fine Lavender Pour Homme
- Gold Dachs Sandelholz
- Haslinger Honig, Sandelholz
- MFW
- Proraso 2x Green, White, Red
- SV 70th Anniversary
- The Blades Grim - Smolder
- Tcheon Fung Sing, Almond scent
- Williams

and my creams:

- AoS Oud Cream
- Lucky Tiger Mollé
- Proraso Green
- Salt Cellar Spa - Dead Sea Shave Cream
- Rituals - 2x Ritual of Samurai Shaving Cream
- Simpsons unscented
- Tabula Rasa, Tea

Alright, looks like fun! For the moment I'm finishing Cella and after that, if it's not warm, I'll go for Haslinger Honig.

Herewith I declare full commitment on one soap till it faces its end except:

1. Season / weather changes significantly (shaving with MWF into summer is not what I like)
1.1 Once season changes again, the paused soap/cream will continue (MWF-->Proraso-->MWF)

2. Irritation after at least 5 shaves ---> PIF or bin
3. Traveling - I don't want to travel with a MWF porcelain
3.1 After travel, the paused soap will continue


Note: I'm loading heavy - better a hole in one's pocket than a cut in one's face - right!

Cheers!

Wow that’s a serious list sir!
 
Wow! I can't fathom having all those soaps...LOL! While I respect your plan to whittle that down and be a "soap player," somehow I kind of have my doubts about that. I mean they didn't just accidentally appear in your den right? Anyway, enjoy them, they look interesting. I am boring, I have been using Tabac forever and while I do have a tub of Wholly Kaw in a cabinet, it is unopened and it may be a while before I decide to use it

If you’re replying to the OP, he completed his journey and checks in from time to time. If you haven’t done so, read the entire thread. There’s lots of invaluable information recorded here.

Nice work, Sam.
 
I haven't updated in a while but wanted to mention I'm still keeping on with the RR Blue Fougere. It's been slow going since I've been on the road a lot and I didn't have the forsight to put the soap in a travel friendly bowl. The RR is easy to dial in and, while it favors a boar brush, I never get a bad lather. Mentally I'm ready to move on though. I'm horrible at guessing shaves left but I have a while yet.

I stuck out the 3 months of no shaving except for neck and cheek lines. I like the end result, more importantly so does my wife. I am bearded and am now going for the half yeard. Still on my Godrej round which I started 4 maybe 5 months ago. Don’t see it finished anytime soon. All the best gentlemen, It’ll be a while before I post a kill next. Now to go look at beard balms and oil.🙂

I did this roughly a year ago in the middle of Tabac. Skewed my g/shaves horribly. If I come across a soap I never want to end I might become bearded again. My balms and oils are waiting for their time to shine too.
