    Thumbs up Sun July 31th - Sat August 06th

    Location: 36° 0'5"N - 115° 15' 21"W
    Razor: Fontana
    Brush: C2 - 2 band
    Soap: B&B - QED
    Astringent: Thayers Witch Hazel
    ASB: Sandalwood AOS
    EDC: B&B
    Summary: Today my shave was total bliss. The main ingredients being sandalwood and spruce. The sweetness of spruce mixed with the earthy woodsy fragrance of sandalwood. Pure heaven. The fontana razor got a nice refresh on my Karasu and gave me a very smooth shave. The 2 band badger brush from C2 is truly a great performer. It whipped up tons of lather in no time. The shave was a perfect ending of this gorgeous Saturday which I spend all day with the wife having fun.
    August is around the corner so gents, lets enjoy every day this summer has to offer and let's bring on those awesome SOTD's.

    Thankyou for all your support yesterday, it helped a lot. I dont think I could have got through last year without the SOTD Brotherhood. I spent most of this afternoon just hanging out with Jacky Boy doing guy stuff.
    It was really nice, therapeutic and fun. Just what I needed.
    Location: Coffs Harbour Australia
    Brush: Comoy Badger
    Soap: Mitchell's Wool Fat
    Razor: Wade & Butcher "For Barber's Only"
    Astringent: Thayer's Original Witch Hazel
    Balm: C.O. Bigelow Mentha
    A/S: Old Spice
    This was a fantastic combination for cleaning away 4 days of growth.
    An effortless shave, 3 relaxing passes to BBS. Such a great way to relax on a Sunday night.
