Happy Sunday, B&Bers!

For this SOTD Theme Week, let’s see your Vintage shaving gear! Show us your old Gillette, Schick and Rolls razors, your vintage soaps, blades, aftershaves/colognes, brushes, scuttles or anything else vintage that is shaving related!

This week‘s theme is easy… post pics of your old shaving stuff! If there is an interesting story around the acquisition of said gear, we’d love to hear about it.

If you don’t have anything themed, post pics of your usual SOTD or just tell us about it! Or maybe cheat a little and show a vintage watch or fragrance. Maybe a 1959 Gibson Les Paul? How about a bottle of 1961 Bordeaux or 1970 Vintage Port? Just have some fun with 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 your Vintage SOTD!

The soap's lather and scent are good. The brush is a joy to use.
This razor was put through the HBA around 200 laps with just water. The edge is ok..smooth and keen enough but wanted it to be better. Overall a dfs+ finish after 3passes...

sotd 8-5

Three days worth of stubble dissappeared like snow for the sun. Not a problem at all for the Lupo and this vintage blade on it's 5th shave. Still trying to finish my Tabac, but since I am not shaving every day anymore, this will take a bit longer ;-)

Starting the week off with a new razor and blade combo. Today I am using a slant razor – the Merkur 37C – and a Personna Medical Prep blade. It is funny but for years I liked adjustables razors over any other kind. Then I switched to slant razors and this was the second slant I bought. The razor gives a very close, comfortable shave. Today’s brush is another big one: the Kent BK8 in Badger. Unfortunately, Kent no longer makes badger brushes. I am continuing to use the MdC soap. The MdC is on its 99th use and still is going strong. A nice shave. Have a great day and week.
