Shave of the Day Thread - 2017

    Another year, another 365ish shaves. Better post details here so we know what is happening!

    There is no set format, although, in case this helps, personally I include:

    Brush:
    Soap/Cream:
    Razor: (setting in parenthesis if adjustable)
    Blade: (shave in brackets)
    Post-shave:
    Cologne: if applicable

    So one of my posts might look like this -

    Brush: Vintage Simpson Butterscotch AS2
    Soap/Cream: Le Pere Lucien
    Razor: Vintage Gillette L1 Slim Adjustable (7)
    Blade: Vintage English Wilkinson Sword (4)
    Post-shave: Le Pere Lucien
    Cologne: Penhaligon's Halfeti


    That was my first last year, browse through the 2016 SOTD thread if you are still looking for inspiration.

    Photos, of any quality, are encouraged but not essential, thoughts and reflections on the shave are most welcome too.

    Happy shaving guys

    Got it. Consider @SpeedyPC and myself on board!

    I think a reiteration or statement as to the proscribed nature of the word 'Gentlemen' is called for however...

    Arggg the thread closed before I could post my last shave of 2016 : /

    - Gillette Slim 1967
    - Polsilver Super Iridium
    - Proraso Sandalwood
    - Gillette Wild Rain (Bottled Manliness. If you find a bottle, keep it for yourself!)

    It was a rushed shave, I went to the gym for an hour, quickly showered and did a Double WTG + ATG before visiting my Grandad. Slim set at 5 for the WTG and 1 for the ATG. Overall, a fast yet pleasing shave.

    Happy New Year fellas! See you on the other side.

    Brush: Vintage butterscotch Simpson '46' reknotted in 'pure'
    Soap/Cream: Santa Maria Novella Firenze Crema Da Barba
    Razor: Darwin Standard Razor
    Blade: Personna 'Lab Blue' (4)
    Post-shave: Santa Maria Novella Firenze Lozione Dopo Barba - Tabacco Toscano

    [​IMG]

    I'm claiming this as my most expensive SOTD every -

    Brush: Vintage butterscotch Simpson '46' reknotted in 'pure' - this was a bargain buy BUT the start of my butterscotch collecting
    Razor: Darwin Standard Razor - well, obvious really
    Soap/Cream: Santa Maria Novella Firenze Crema Da Barba
    Post-shave: Santa Maria Novella Firenze Lozione Dopo Barba - Tabacco Toscano

    Both the SMN products were purchased from their shop in Florence - I'm claiming the cost of the family holiday to get them as part of the purchase price :)

    Lovely way to start the New Year.

    Happy shaving fellas!

    As per normal I'm running late !!
    Phone call from the wife an hour early to meet her plane from Canberra, old habits to the rescue.
    I wanted a straight shave as I had 3-4 days growth. No prep and just a wet brush on the face then load the brush and lather.
    2 passes and beautiful DFS++
    Soap mine
    Razor Japanese 6/8" Rituky
    Finished with Macadamia nut and Lemon myrtle
    with still enough time to get to the airport. I think !!

    Thought I'd start 2017 with the best soap and razor of 2016 for me. Fantastic shave.

    Also, Manuel is releasing Rosa and Dama in tallow.

    @nsavage what's the Clubguy aftershave & Cologne smell like any good? I'm told is very similar scent to Clubman Pinaud Aftershave Lotion IF you can compare them.

    I have not smelt the Clubman Pinaud sorry but have heard the same said by others. All that I can tell you is that it smells fantastic. The soap is a great performer and the after shave is outstanding.

    Brush: Morris & Forndran 28mm Blonde Badger
    Soap: Haslinger Sage
    Razor: Gillette Slim Adjustable (7)
    Blade: Voskhod (2)
    Post-shave: Speick A/S Splash

    Looks like a great start to the new year from everybody here. The M&F brush has a touch of scrub with nice soft tips and great flow through. The Haslinger is an excellent addition to my travel kit. I've been shaving with straights for the last few months so the DE makes a nice change.
