Hello 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 West Coast Shaving! WCS does shaving soaps/cremes, razors, brushes and much, much more. They offer the big brands like Simpson brushes, A&E and M&M soaps and they even have their own soap/brush lineup. Excellent selection of all things shaving. WCS was also Ranked as one of the BEST Online Shops of 2021 by Newsweek.

Let’s see your WCS products if you have them. If you don’t have anything from them, go to their website @https://www.westcoastshaving.com or their B&Bstore @ https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/forums/west-coast-shaving.175/ to show some love for this outstanding B&B supporting vendor.

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 West Coast Shaving!

Soap RazoRock XXX
Brush Yaqi 26mm Rainbow
Razor Henkotsu Kamisori
Aftershave RazoRock XXX Splash
Nice enough soap and matching aftershave for the scent and lather qualities...
Today's shave with this Kamisori after putting it through another full-pasted balsa progression was kinda muted. The edge was popping hairs very well but did not feel as efficient during the shave although still feel smooth. Workday rush 2passes for a sas result without any issues...
