Hello again B&Bers!

It is time for another fun SOTD Theme Week!

Let’s talk about Food and Drink this week.

We want to see your food and/or drink related shaving items this week... fruity or boozy soaps, soft drink or dessert inspired colognes and aftershaves, etc. OR include food or drink in your SOTD image.… a SOTD pic including a steak or a glass of milk? Weird, but we’ll take it!

Let’s see some fun images this week!

P.S… Being creative and having fun IS of course mandatory as usual. Sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory. Feel free to post any SOTD photo or just tell us about your shave.

I think this fits, Gents

It's Arko! August and High Efficiency Summer 2023​

Razor: Gillette Red Tip A4
Blade: Dorco Titan(3)
Brush: Omega 10290
Soap: Arko!
ASL: Skin Bracer
Balm: Nivea Sensitive

Another fine mid-morning shave. Two passes as either my Red Tip is not as efficient as my Aristocrat, or the edge of the Titan is sinking.

My Omega 10290 is a standout when it comes to boars, never failing to whip up a decent lather no matter the soap. Today I looked like the ARKO! Man.


The Witch hazel felt slick, the Skin Bracer invigorating, and the Nivea balm a nice sendoff for what it supposed to be a real sizzler today in the IE(Inland Empire).

Have a Cool One

MMMonday, August 28th, 2023. Micromatic Monday Thread, use any ASR razor that uses a Gem blade any day of the week, all welcomed!

Razor : Ever-Ready 1924(AKA= shovel head), Mfg 1924-1933, nice tame to mid range. It was built before Gem changed its blade design to what we use today with the thinner aluminum spline. I like to use a RIGS shim underneath the newer Gem blade and smooths out the shave nicely. This was a popular razor because of it's years of production which always indicates a successful model.
Had a close comfortable shave this morning with no issues.
Blade : Gem Personna SS PTFE (3) very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely, predictable + safest blade to handle.
Soap : Gillette Pure cream, very nice clean scent with excellent lather qualities. Excellent for making ubber lather(bowl soap remnants.).
Brush : Yaqi"Atlantis" 24mm G4 synthetic, excellent lather generator, pillow like soft tips, some back bone for nice splay scrubber + excellent lather painter. This knot is very similar to a 3 or 2 band badger IMO + handle is unique and feels excellent in hand.
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 : Witch hazel + a dollop of CeraVe moisturizing lotion(scentless).
Results : 1-10 dial - Copy (2)2 template 10.1.jpg or CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers=:a17: Excellent close comfortable shave this morning with a coated Gem blade.
