Hi B&B folks!

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 Col. Ichabod Conk’s World Famous Glycerine Shave Soaps and Fine Grooming Products! @Colonel Conk and team make excellent shaving soaps, aftershaves, razors and brushes and also offer Merkur and Dovo razors! They offer some great shaving sets as well. If you are trying to convert someone to wetshaving, look no further!

Let’s see your Colonel Conk products if you have them. If you don’t have anything from them, check out their website @ https://www.colconkproducts.com Or their B&Bstore @ https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/forums/colonel-conk-products.291/ and show your some love for this outstanding B&B supporting vendor.

If you don’t have anything from the Colonel, 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 Colonel Conk love!

Great relaxing evening shave, still haven’t found a soap that comes close to Wicked Rooster Farm. The Lavender and Honey easily whips up into a copious amount slick luxurious lather. This was my third shave with this Silver Star razor blade and another BBS shave.

I knew I was going to go for the BBS as soon as I decided I was going with Wicked Rooster Farm soap. The COL. CONK Rio Grande Lavender, Bold Lavender Blend, Aftershave Lotion was a natural choice for
soothing/relaxing finish to my shave!

Nice enough soap with a very light scent and an acceptable lather...
The razor for today's shave was very good. The edge was smooth, comfortable yet crisp...

Fourth day in a row with the Mergress and Personna Med combo and another great shave. This has become my favorite adjustable razor. The only complaint I have with it is that its smoothness on the handle requires me to dry my hands before using it. 60th use of the Ethos unscented soap. Looks as if I have another month’s use of the soap. Four passes on my face and neck and two on my head and the result was a perfect shave. Have a great day and week, folks.
