💈🪒 SOTD - “Size Matters” Theme Week - March 4th to March 10th, 2024 💈🪒

Not open for further replies.
Hello again my B&B Friends!

This week’s SOTD Theme is “Size Matters”.

For this week, let’s see the abnormally large and strangely small shaving items that you own!

Small: We want to see your small soap samples or shaving sticks, travel razors, tiny aftershave and fragrance bottles and wee little brushes. If you use a thimble as a shaving bowl, we need to see it!

Large: Alternatively, do you own a 40mm brush that could hold enough later to shave a yeti or do you shave daily with a kilo slab of Cella? Is your razor handle reminiscent of a broom handle or do you buy your aftershave or cologne by the litre or gallon? Show us!

Nothing themed? Please still post a pic of your usual shaving setups and/or tell us all about it.

As always, the weekly themes are just a suggestion. 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 lots of small and large shaving gear pics this week!

Sticking with the Feather/Feather combination for the 7th shave. With the Feather AS-D2 razor can get more shaves with a Feather blade. In all my other razors I can get three or four shaves with a Feather blade. The Williams soap today is the 88th use. The Rooney brush did a nice job, as usual. This brush is one of my large brushes and performs perfectly. Have a wonderful day and week, folks.

Talk about SIZE - everything smaller than the height of the Hawk V3A.
Had to work hard to get that tiny Made-Rite to load out of a sample puck but I had two good passes and a face wash. Kai blade on it's 10th use and still going strong.

March 4, 2024 Monday shave

Razor: Timeless 68 SSB (2)
Blade: Suneko (2)
Soap: Razorock New York
Brush: Yaqi 30mm Tuxedo
Bowl: Captain's Choice Heavyweight copper
Post shave: Barbero alum block, Thayer's Witch Hazel
Aftershave: Mennen Skin Bracer

The "Size Matters" part of this shave was the enormous (to me) 30mm Yaqi brush.

This was the second shave with the Timeless 68. Before the shave, I decided to go easy and forego "chasing the baby".
So, I did for the first time I can recall, did a two pass shave, WTG and ATG. It surely speeded things up today! On the plus side, no weepers, etc. and no irritation. Very smooth and uneventful. Really easy.


Enjoy your day!
