    By the time it's up and running, there's going to be plenty of single edge razors to choose from. ;)

    @stingraysrock -I am becoming more and more a minimalist. You said you were a 1 razor 1 brush guy. What brush do you use?

    The brush handle was made by Rudy Vey and the knot is a Shavemac D01 two-band Silvertip Flattop knot. The size/loft is approx 21/42 mm.
    The style of handle is a modified beehive, with larger than normal bumps.

    With the exception of vacation, this brush has been the only brush I have used for three years and it still has yet to lose a hair. When I go on vacation, I take a smaller brush named Chubz 1, given to me by @PanChango many years ago.

    Wow! I understand how that brush can ruin you for any other!:)

    RyX DoH!

    Maybe when I collect an inheritance. That knot will set you back a good buck and a quarter.

    And then you have to either install the knot into your own handle, or hire an artisan to turn one for you. Either way, at 47 years of age, it is probably the last brush I will ever have to buy.

    Glad to hear it still gets some use. I have number 3 here with an Omega knot and use it every so often. Most days I use the same mixed knot Semogue.

    How long are we going to let the box cool down before we send it back in to action?

    Dunno, maybe a week or two? What do you suggest?

    I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with The Box in Round One. If I might request being placed low on the list again? I experienced some anxiety seeing interesting items show up and get snagged before my turn, BUT when it reached me there were some wonderful gems that pleased me. That "one man's trash is another man's treasure" applies well.
    Hot Potato. Why wait? When does Round Three start signing up? ;)

    Sounds good to me!

    I enjoyed being on the lead of the Traveling box ... I was able to see the box fresh out of the gate and had the ability to add quite a bit. :D

    I popped into an antique store today and scored an Old Spice shave mug for ten bucks and a puck of vintage Williams soap (tallow) for six bucks.

    I was afraid the box would come and I'd have to dip into my own stock!

    Yeah! A day early from the predicted ETA, too. Being The Originator the whole Box is yours Jeff! Of course Round Two is imminent, but at the end it's all you again.

    Happy Friday From Florida!

    Okay! So, as promised, here are the take/give pix.

    I posted earlier that we need to be taking more than we give, but I get it; we all are a generous bunch!

    The take:


    The give:



    There are a bunch of injector razors in the box, so I dropped a few injector blades in the box, and some random DE cased blades in the box.

    Nobody wanted the tool roll or the neck duster, so I pulled them out and trashed them.

    I am surprised that all the blades I dropped in from the beginning are gone; has the shavepocolilpse begun?!?

    Now the only thing to do is randomize the list of participants, even though there are only eight...
