Not open for further replies.
Hi again 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 with the opportunity to show off the excellent gear that you have accumulated!

This Week’s SOTD Theme Week is all about Captain’s Choice. The Captain (Scott) @Captain Pre-Capsize and team make fantastic shaving soaps and creams, aftershave/balm, leather goods, shaving bowls/scuttles (these are gorgeous!) and brushes that are very popular with the B&B community and wetshavers across the globe. The Captain is a very active member of our B&B community as well.

Let’s see your Captain’s Choice products if you have them. If you don’t have anything from the Captain, check out their website @ https://www.captainschoicestore.com/all or B&B store @ https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/forums/captains-choice.208/ and show some love for this outstanding B&B supporting vendor.

If you don’t have anything from the Captain, 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 the Captain!

Wow!! What a fantastic scent from this soap (enhanced by the splash). The strength is just perfect. The lather is richly creamy and slick...really wow!
The shave with this excellent razor paired with the 3rd used blade was even better. Somehow it was smoother and crispier. 3passes for a bbs finish without any issues. The matching aftershave is just terrifically great!!

Captain’s Choice Copper
Henson Ti22 - Medium
Personna Lab
Thayers WH & Proraso
GFT Sandalwood
Another good shave with the Ti22. Third shave with the Personna Lab blade and 53rd use of the Ethos soap. Usually, I prefer heavier razors but I think I like the Al 13 razor over the Ti. It seems a bit smoother to me. The TI still does a nice job, however. Have a great day and week, B&Bers.
Captains Choice Obsidian
Blackland Tradere OC
Sterling Island Man
Omega Badger

Captains Choice Obsidian bowl gets used daily- love it!

The Tradere OC is rapidly becoming one of my favorites- very smooth but really efficient - gives fabulous comfortable shaves driven steeply.
