So I don't know if its possiblesince there's a soap a week club it sounded interesting to myself with a follow up to make a shaving brush one as well. I know most of us wetshavers have many SB's in our rotation. I know I do. Knowing that I have so many, there are some which don't get used often or are appreciated.  It is hard just use one but this way If I limit my self to one, all my brushes will be used hands down. It's just another way of understanding that each brush we own are all not the same unless its a duplicate. Who knows, that one brush you don't use often could ultimately end up being your favorite. What do you guys think? Who would like to join me on this challenge? I'll pick my brush and post a pic of it once i'm home after work!

I'm game. To make it honest a pic of the brush wet in a different location could verify the authenticity of the challenge.....

Well... it would be tough to be Master of my Domain but I'll give it a shot. Soaps are even harder for me and razors the easiest.

It's go time!

It would take me over two years before I would see the same brush again, I can't handle that! 

I do miss the Brush a Week photo thread though...

I think it may be easier to keep the schedule beginning the first day of the week as opposed to the middle of the week.

Sounds good! The only thing is I shave in the evenings and would have to post it after work and my shave.

I think your lovely photos would do quite well even if you participated just using one brush for the week.

So I almost forgot yesterday knowing this challenge. But thankfully I didn't and picked my brush for this week. I decided to opt out the Soap a week in order to show my brush lathered up with a different soap as proof. Yesterday I chose MWF and paired with my lovely Zenith Boar Brush. Its a wonderful brush with an Aluminum handle which provides some wonderful weight to it. Very comfortable in the hand while face lathering. The size of the knot 26mm while the loft is 57mm. You would think it would be impossible to face lather with such a brush but isn't and a joy to use. I'm going to enjoy it this week. Below is my pic from yesterday's shave which was just wonderful. What is your brush for the week?

Balj, to be honest I forgot myself but did kick off with a Simpsons CH2. Did not take pic(s) but will grab a cellphone shot later today.
