Congratulations! You’ve landed on the most informative, interesting and fastest thread on TSD and every known forum in the western world. Contained within these hallowed posts, is found vast knowledge---spanning thousands of years of wet-shaving experience. This is the thread, where new shavers meet experienced shavers and interchange ideas; ask shaving (and non-shaving) questions; gaze with awe at the sometimes elaborate and sometimes austere shave gear; gorgeous photography, (excluding a certain opera singer’s) and one-of-kind; never-seen-before vintage, antique or just-arrived from the manufacturer piece of shave gear. For the uninitiated, the 30DC (as we like to call it) has really only one “official” purpose: Help anyone and everyone have a more enjoyable shave. How does that work, you may be asking? This is how… Take one brush, one soap, one razor, one brand of blades and use them daily for the entire month. Is there a particular soap that you just can’t get to lather? Post a question. Is that new razor irritating your neck? Ask a fellow-shaver. What’s up with the stench emanating from that new boar brush? The answer is in this thread. You just can’t decide if that razor blade is really bad, or if your technique needs improvement? This is the place to sort that out. Indeed, a great shave is more about a well-honed technique, than a well-honed razor. Often-times, this thread has a monthly theme. I have been thinking about what July’s theme could be. July is named after the famous emperor Julius Caesar. In ancient roman times, having a beard was considered…well barbaric. We dedicated wet-shavers are, of course, anything but barbaric; indeed we consider a daily shave to be a sign of refinement and cleanliness. Therefore, I have come to the conclusion, that this month, July 2020, shall be named…drumroll, please… Shave like an Emperor month! For the hard-core followers of the monthly theme, the (un)official rules are hereby declared: Shave with your most noble gear! Smell like an Emperor or Empress. Post your shaves with authority! Let no random stubble escape! Or…simply shave with whatever you want and just be part of our community. Some thread disclaimers: 1) All are welcome, newbies and veterans 2) Respect each other at all times 3) Adhere to the rules of this forum Invite your friends to join us and let’s make July our biggest and best month ever. Now…go have a great shave!
