SOTD "FAVORITE ARTISANS THEME WEEK" January 22nd - January 28th, 2018

A new week has begun at SOTD, Gentlemen!!!

And this week is a Favorite Artisans Theme Week!

Who are your favorite brush, soap/cream, and fragrance makers in the shave world? Now is the time to highlight them in SOTDs that feature them solely or in combination.

It's time to be creative, Gents.

As with any of the theme weeks, this theme is only a suggestion. Please feel free to post any photo, with whatever gear and in any style you chose, or contribute by telling us what you used in your shave, with comments on the shave if you desire.

Color, B&W, sepia or a photograph with any type of artistic touch you wish is always welcome.


Be Adventuresome!

I don't know if it's any good, but that's a helluva packaging job. Where do you get Tell Tale Heart products?

The packaging is truly in a league of its own. It’s unique and very beautiful. The products are on par with the presentation.

It was a limited edition from The Holy Black back in October 2017. I’d suspect they are quite hard to come by now. Sign up to The Holy Black mailing list and I’m sure there will be another LE coming soon.
