SOTD Tabula Gratulatoria - March 2012

Not open for further replies.
Normally I'd like to kick off this thread with a selection of my favorites. Unfortunately, mahogony row at work has decided to put in a web filter. Long story short, I can't see the wonderful SOTD shots from work. So I am a few days late getting this one together. A few of the many which caught my eye follow.

During this themed week we would like to see, in your always stunning shots, all the wet shaving novelties you own and enjoy using. With novelties we intend brand new items (brushes, razors, soaps/creams, aftershaves, colognes, etc.) that have been recently introduced on the market and, also, traditional stuff that has been lately reformulated. Please proceed! :wink2:

GFT Limes SC - Semogue 830 - Clements Extra Quality - Blue Stratos


I got the Clements back today from a knife sharpener who is looking to get into straight razors and honing them. He did a pretty good job too, at what I think is only his second razor.


Wacker // H.LThäter // Shave Cream San James Of London // Thayers // Aqua Velva

Pre-Shave: Hot shower
Brush: Semogue 750
Razor: 5/8 Puma
Strop: 40/60 Neil Miller Linen/English Bridle
Soap/Cream: RazoRock XXX
After shave: Str8fencer's Rhòmme
Results: Honed this this one for a newbie having some problems, it took a quite nice edge, just lacking a little bit on the comfort side to my liking so I'll give it a little more work to tune that in, but nice and sharp, gave me my first cut in months :tongue_sm a nice little slice on the chin.

  • Shaving Soap: Martin De Candre
  • Shaving Brush: Thäter SRP 2011
  • Razor: 13/16 Globusmen

A bit narcissistic today.... :smile:

That poor Globusmen have seen a lot of water and hones the last 10 days, it's due for a little Autosol cleanup. :smile:

Good Morning Everyone!

Semogue 2011 LE FBadger 1 (#79) | Merkur HD w/ RedIP | KOS Alpha Oil | AOS SS : Lemon | Nivea Replenishing ASB

I really do hope you all had a great shave just as I did!


Just wanted to mention I've owned the Semogue 11 LE FBadger 1 for about 3 months and I have to say its one of the brushes I can't live without now. At first it was bit scritchy but it has vastly improved since then. It's like my shavemac D-01 Three Band but with a much denser knot with some scritch. It is fully broken in and is soft enough to enjoy a lot more shaves. Anyways my fellow B&B Friends I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Happy shaving to you all as I had a great shave this morning! In this picture I opened the blinds and there was a rainbow as you can see in this pic. I did not have the heart to ruin this pic with a border b/c I wanted it to be natural although I adjusted the contrast a little. Have a great day my friends

Limited time tonight as I am going away for a week after work tomorrow. Things to do! Will have my laptop with me so I will still be viewing and commenting when I get the chance. Another day of supreme shots by all, gentlemen. Congratulations everybody!!!!:thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:
Prep: |Hot Shower / Very Hot Water Soak /Shave Gel left on during shower / Extra Virgin Olive Oil Rub
Razor: |5/8 Boker 'King Cutter', the first real straight razor I ever bought, ruined learning how to strop
Hones: |Full re-hone from bevel to finished edge, 1k,4/8k, 12k, Diamond, CrOx, Clean felt, leather
Brush: |24mm Silvertip in American Ash
Uber: |Tabac
AS: |Alum Block + Gillette Sensitive Skin
Edc: |English Leather
Result: |I haven't used this razor in almost a year. I had pretty much ruined the edge learning to strop properly. The last time I used it prior to this, it was absolutely horrible. I decided last night to learn to do a rolling X, as this razor has a slight bow to it which had always kept me from attempting to rescue it myself. I bought it from SRD and had a cert. for a free re-hone if I wanted it, but I always had it in the back of my mind to learn to hone it properly. Today was the best shave I have had off it since I got it fresh from Lynn's hones. DFS in 2 passes
