Hi B&Bers!

This week and for the next few months 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 @apshaveco . Andrew and team make fantastic brushes and knots that are very popular with the B&B community. They are proudly made in Canada’s Capital Ottawa, Ontario.

Let’s see your AP brushes and/or knots and even your Penny Shaver razors if you have one. If you don’t have an AP brush or knot… what’s wrong with you? Check out their website @ https://apshaveco.com or B&B store @ https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/forums/ap-shave-co.316/ and show your some love for this outstanding B&B supporting vendor.

If you don’t have anything from AP Shave Co., 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 AP!

Fantastic soap and brush combination! Wonderful scent with a rich creamy and slick lather! The brush is just a joy to use.
New Razor just arrived! I just love old & big ax-type razors...this is with a super soft smooth and gentle edge. Another excellent razor from the genuinely good Ebay seller. 2nd W&B from him. Workday rush 2.5passes for an acceptable ccs/dfs result without any issues at all...wow! What a super nice edge. The aftershaves were very good too.
