Hello B&Bers!

For this SOTD Theme Week, we want to see your favourite shaving items paired with items that are discussed in other B&B Subforums.

This Theme is an EASY one… Choose another B&B subforum and incorporate that theme into your shots. I.E. Whisky, watches, footwear, pipes or cigars, knives, music, etc. pretty much anything! The more different themes you can incorporate, the more more super amazing soon to be non-worthless likes thou shall receive!

And as usual, if you don’t have anything themed… post pics of your shave or just tell us about it!

As also as usual usual, being creative and having fun IS mandatory but sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory but encouraged.

This is the third shave with the ATT S-1 and Polsilver Super Iridium blade. Today starts a week with a new soap: B&M Leviathan. Much to my surprise, this soap has a very mild scent. Some say it has a coffee scent but neither my wife nor I found that. Nevertheless, performance-wise, it provided a decent lather. A perfect shave. Have a good one folks.

SOTD #024/2022

I'm not active in the subforums, however I'll follow up with a wine theme. I won't open all these bottles in course of the week... #don't drink and shave 😉 But it'll be fun though to show you some nice bottles of my favourite white wine grape aka the king of the hill... 😜 Here's on of them...

I start out this week's log with an effortless & easy two pass shave with a lovely smooth razor/blade combo (free of nicks, almost bbs all over.). I chose a steep angle and focused the audible feedback the razor provided. The .95 Lupo really did an amazing job on my skin.

Though I won't open every bottle: this one made its way into the fridge immediately. We'll meet this evening.

23 January 2022


Razor: RR"Lupo" 72
Astra blue

Gel: Elegance Plus "Jupiter"

GBS alum block
Balm: CeraVe "Moisturizing Lotion"
Frag: Lalique "Encre Noire"

Had a week's worth of whiskers
to whack, yet, procrastinator
that I am, had little time to do it.

So I got out my gel (I have a two
liter jug of the stuff) and slathered
it on.

One WTG pass got me down to
where I could manage a
productive ATG pass.

Got a good shave. Not a great one.
Could have spent more time on my
neck, but such is life.

Looking forward to a really great
shave today, though--this time with
a brush and some proper lather.

Stay healthy,
