    I am hosting a pass-a-round of @twhite 's DE-Vette three-piece razor. Here are the rules. Please read carefully.

    1) CONUS Only.
    2) Each user will thoroughly clean the razor BEFORE shipping to next on the list.
    3) It's a good idea to clean the razor upon receiving it.
    4) To make the shipping fair, everyone should ship Priority Mail.
    5) Before shipping, PM the next on the list for their address and INCLUDE me in the PM.
    6) EDIT: I have been thinking that maybe one week is not enough time to evaluate this razor. Perhaps the shaver shaves every other day, so let's increase the "keep time" to two weeks. Again, if you feel this razor isn't to your liking, move it along right away.
    7) This is a delicate razor, please ship the razor in the metal container in which you will receive it.
    8) Tom's words: "This razor is far more challenging than any other razor I have made. I would really stress that on the rules. It will bite you."
    9) Post pictures and comments here on THIS thread. That's the motivation behind this pass-a-round.
    10) You will receive the three piece razor and the extra, grooved handle Tom recently made.
    11) Participation in this pass-a-round will require that you are a well-established member of this forum. I reserve the right to not include you. BTW, while I am NOT advertising this on any other shave forum, if, perchance, there is someone, whom I know and trust, who wishes to join, I will allow them to participate.

    Today is May 23. I am going to let this sign up process run until the end of the month.
    If this interests you, please respond. I will keep a running update of those wishing to participate.

    I have edited the "keep time" to two weeks. This seems more reasonable to fully evaluate this unique razor.

    OK Tom, enough arm twisting here.

    Primo, I'm in.

    Tom, maybe try the "triple dog dare" over in the 30DC. I'm told it is revered.
    :cool:

    You know that penguins are related to chickens, right?

    (actually, fun fact, the penguin's closest living relative is the albatross.)

    That sounds like a good idea. A week to get the hang of it and another to enjoy it.

    @richgem scared them away with all that talk about chickens and albatrosses.
