Hello B&Bers!

This Week’s SOTD Theme Week is all about Fancy shaving gear!

Show us your favourite fancy shaving gear including expensive soaps, rare razors, your most luxurious brushes, rare/discontinued soaps, special occasion fragrances, etc.

If a shaving item looks fancy, we want to see it regardless of cost. If you are a baller and use a Waterford or Baccarat tumbler as a shaving bowl, we want to see it! Have a gold plated or diamond encrusted razor? A 500ml bottle of Creed Aventus? Let’s see them too!

If you don’t have anything you would consider fancy, post a pic of your favourite shaving setups. Or post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us all about it. Fancy non-shaving related items incorporated into your pics works as well. A Patek Philippe watch paired with Arko and a Dollarstore razor is indeed acceptable. Let’s see lots of great images this week!

As always, being creative and having fun IS mandatory but sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory but very strongly encouraged.

Let’s see your most impressive shaving items!

This is the second shave in a row with my Henson AL++ paired with a Personna Medical Prep blade. After my four-pass shave on my face and neck I did not need any touchups. The Williams soap was used for the 95th time. The shave was perfect. On Tuesday I will be off for two weeks of fishing! Have a wonderful day, folks.

Monday Morning Shaving Shindig

Ninth shave on the Empire with a GEM blade and it was a nice smooth affair. This is my prettiest Empire as it has retained a lot of the original Silver plating and shine. Overall an amazing shave.

ASRazor shave, Monday, March 11th 2024

Razor : Ever-Ready streamline 2nd generation- Mfg 1949-53, mid to upper mid range. This razor was designed when the Gem blade spline was thicker, but fast forward to todays modern blade it has a thinner aluminum spline so to mimic the the older spline I add a shim underneath the Modern blade spline(R.I.G.S) to smooth out the shave slightly. Had a close comfortable shave this morning.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (10) very sharp, smooths out nicely, excellent longevity, predictable + safest blade to handle.
Soap : Ach Brito Lavanda cream, nice milder scented lavender with a touch of mint, + excellent lather qualities. This is a wonderful shave cream and it is very easy to reach a very nice lather quickly IMO.
Brush : Yaqi "Mountain lake" 24mm 2band badger. Excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips. nice splay scrubber + great lather painter.
Pre shave : (Dedicated Cashmere synthetic)Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser with a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep : Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
Post shave : Ach Brito Lavender with witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : Dial 9.5.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Had a close comfortable shave this morning with my Ever-Ready streamline razor with a coated Gem blade.
