Hi again B&Bers!

This week and for the next few weeks we are going to show our support and thank our amazing B&B Supporting Vendors (who are instrumental in helping keep the lights on around here), and provide you the opportunity to show off the excellent gear that you have accumulated!

This Week’s SOTD Theme Week is all about Simpsons Shaving Brushes! Simpson is known for their excellent hand crafted shaving brushes, but also offers razors, mugs, stands, etc. Check out their shaving cream as it is excellent and their SiLVERTiP badger knots are a thing of beauty. Simpsons has been in business for over 100 years and is now based at the centre of the British Isles on the beautiful Isle of Man. @A.E. Simpson 1919 (Mark Watterson, Managing Director of Progress Shaving Brush (Vulfix/Simpson)) is also quite active on B&B which is cool as he runs the place.

Let’s see your Brushes and other Simpson/Vulfix products if you have them. If you don’t have anything from them, go to their website @ https://www.simpsonshavingbrushes.com or their B&Bstore @Simpson Shaving Brushes - https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/forums/simpson-shaving-brushes.287/ to show some love for this outstanding B&B supporting vendor. I personally love their brushes and own too many Simpsons to count.

If you don’t have anything from this fine B&B supporting vendor, please still post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us all about it.

As always, being creative and having fun IS mandatory but sticking with the theme is NOT mandatory but very strongly encouraged.

Let’s see some love for Simpson/Vulfix!

Brush Yaqi 24mm Sagrada Familia
Razor GEM Junior
Blade GEM PTFE 11th Use
Aftershaves Stirling Witchhazel Lemon Chill + Reuzel Wood & Spice + Frost Drops
It used to be soft cream but is now harder than most of my soaps so I'm calling it a soap. Fabulous lather from the soap...thickly creamy and very slick...the scent was very nice too...refreshing!
Today's shave with this razor paired with the blade was good and uneventful. 3 smooth passes for a dfs finish without any issues. The aftershaves were good for a hot day ahead...
