<<< SOTD - “SINGLE EDGE RAZOR THEME WEEK” - October 3rd, 2022 to October 9th, 2022 >>>

Not open for further replies.
Hello B&Bers! I hope everyone is enjoying the Fall season (or Spring for those of you on the other side of the globe).

This SOTD Weekly Theme is all about Single Edged razors. We had SEptember (Single Edge) on B&B last month and are currently running ACtober (Artist Club), so let’s pull it all together this week!

Straight razors, GEMs, Razorock Hawks, Supply Co., Wolfman WR3s, Injectors, Kamisori style, anything using Artist Club blades, etc.! Anything that only uses a single blade edge. Even a disposable BIC Metal qualifies.

We want to see you showcase your favourite SE razors - modern or vintage. Let’s see what you have!

Nothing SE themed? Please still post a pic of your usual shaving setups. Or post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us all about it. Let’s see lots of SE images this week!

As always, the weekly themes are just a suggestion, but being creative and having fun IS mandatory. We encourage you to post or shoot photos of your Shave Gear of the Day regardless of the theme as sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory but encouraged.

Let’s see your Single Edged themed shaving setups!

First spin with the Junior was a pleasure. Very similar to the Ever-Ready, maybe a little tamer feeling on the face, but just as close and just as much fun. Have a nice week everyone!

A beautifully scented soap with excellent lather qualities whip up by the wonderfully stout brush.
A very easy enjoyable shave with this razor paired with my most liked AC blade. Silky smooth and efficient. I only have 2 of these blades courtesy of a forum member and as such, this blade is precious and used very sparingly. 3passes for a dfs+ result

I am using my Wolfman loaded with a Personna Med Prep blade for the second day in a row. This combo of razor and blade works wonders. Using a steeper angle than I usually do and with a light touch, the result is a BBS shave with zero irritation. The brush today is one of my favorites: a Paladin El Dorado. The brush loads soap easily and makes some great lather. Plus, with its size, I have enough lather for a four-pass face and two-pass head shave. A nice, close shave. Have a good one, folks.
