We are into week two of Sharpologist’s 30 Days To A More Enjoyable Shave challenge! Last week we started the challenge with a look at shave preparation. This week, perhaps the most enjoyable yet possibly inscrutable part of wet shaving: lather.

Traditional Shaving Company’s 100 series badger brush is a solid, middle-of-the-road brush that is another “no drama” product for me: a solid performer that uses good quality parts. I admit that I can be kind of rough on brushes but this brush has been holding up quite nicely. It’s dropped maybe one or two hairs, pleasantly stiff without being too “scritchy,” and I haven’t had to deal with a funky smell.

Leisureguy recently wrote a post titled “5 Shaving Creams That Shaving Soap Guys Should Try.” I thought I would turn that around and suggest 5 shaving soaps that shaving cream aficionados should try. I based these suggestions on how easy they are to lather (even in hard water), performance, and I tried to cross scent and price ranges so there’s something for everyone. These aren’t the only choices of course but they should give you great results.

This morning my wife (an Occupational Therapist by trade) suggested an idea for a shaving video that I thought was really good: how to shave someone else. Specifically, how to shave a family member who might be too old or disabled to shave themselves. Sharpologist has had a similar post about this but it was more about the family connection. This would be a video more about the “mechanics” of such a shave.
