Another week, another shaving #drama. This time it's centered around a soap-only release from Barrister and Mann called Passiflora - the rub being that it was to be offered exclusively to the Shaving Shop Club membership. In principle, it sounds as though it should've gone as planned. But of course you know that's never a given... Little did we know what would go down as another infamous implosion.
A horrible story being reported today; "A year's worth of artist couple's work stolen from trailer in Vancouver." Apparently the trailer containing some $40,000 worth of product made by the Albertan couple Hugh MacPherson and Deb Rowland of Avalanche Artisans was broken into last weekend. While the goods were insured, it's not known if the whole loss will be covered, and the #drama basically ended their holiday market season plans. Thankfully, the items (mostly #razor and #brush) are fairly unique and can be easily spotted should they surface. Keep your eyes out and report sightings!
Today I'd like to post about the "top artisans" of this year, 2016. Not only those that have brought remarkable performance to shaving software, from soaps to aftershaves, not to mention incredible scents... But those that have refined the state of the art[isan] in the market with packaging and presentation, collaboration with other artisans or have worked extremely hard to bring us our simple joys every morning...
