SOTD “Obscure Shaving Gear/Den Diving/Archaeology Week” NOVEMBER 29th - DECEMBER 5th, 2021

Yes! It is time yet again for another SOTD Theme Week!

Let’s Celebrate the uncommon, rare and hopefully downright weird shaving gear in your collection! Let’s see your Obscure and rarely used gear. Dig deep and show us items that we don’t see every day.

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. The weirder or rarer the better!

Have fun!
Mon 29 SOTD
Soap Catie's Bubbles Le Piment De La Vie
Brush Yaqi 24mm Arctic Sky Deep Blue
Razor Edwin Jagger DE89L
Blade KAI Stainless Steel 1st Use
Aftershaves Stirling Witchhazel MitA + Aqua Velva Ice Blue
A nice soap with a uniquely pleasant scent. The lather is very good too, creamy and slick!
This shave with my 1st DE razor paired with the blade was very good. Crisply sharp yet very smooth and comfortable. Managed 3passes for a mostly bbs result. In comparison to my last shave using the Feather, it has a slight edge over the KAI for better efficiency, ymmv. Aftershaves were good.

My Monday shave goes back to the Ethos Unscented soap but with my UK Aristocrat razor loaded with a Personna Lab blade for the second shave. The razor–blade combo works great. The brush made plenty of lather and felt great on the face. A nice BBS shave. Have a good day, folks.
