    So part of the den trim-down means I get to help out any gents who are just getting started in wetshaving. So I've put together a package full of some good stuff, so anyone looking to try out a little bit of everything can take advantage! (I used a lot of the word "so" in these first couple of sentences... but meh.)

    Price: FREE to CONUS addresses. Because of the weight, I'm going to have to ask whomever might be interested *OUTSIDE* the CONUS to help out on shipping... your part wouldn't be more than $10 - promise!

    All you gotta do is post your interest in this thread, any kind of Reply will work. I'll leave this up until Wednesday June 16 and that evening I'll let pick the winning number. Your entry number will be the post number of your Reply. For example, the first person who posts below this one will have entry #2, the next person to post in this thread will have entry #3, and so on. (There will not be an entry #1, because that's MY post! ;))

    Here's the breakdown:

    Semogue 2000 boar brush
    Savile Row 3124 Silvertip badger brush (hardest decision I've ever had to make (from a wetshaving perspective) to let this one go)
    Gillette Long Handled Adjustable from 1971 (date code R3)
    Gillette Flair Tip from 1954 (date code Z3) - not pictured
    QTY 5 Swedish Gillette blades
    QTY 5 Derby blades
    QTY 5 Astra Superior Platinum blades
    QTY 10 Feather blades
    QTY 5 Lord DE blades
    QTY 5 Astra Keramik blades
    My Time Bath & Body Green Irish Tweed type soap - 75%
    Taylor of Old Bond Street Sandalwood soap - New, unused (in Ziploc tub)
    Proraso cream tube - New, unused (no box)
    Crabtree & Evelyn Sandalwood cream tub - 90%
    Proraso soap - 90%
    Arko shave stick - New, unused
    Erasmic shave stick - New, unused (original TALLOW version)
    Palmolive shave stick - New, unused (TALLOW version)



    So there ya have it. A boar brush, a badger brush, a couple of razors, a mixture of blades... some soaps... some creams... some sticks!!

    Just post a reply to enter this contest. Note that this is a TSD *EXCLUSIVE* and will *NOT* be posted on any other forum!

    Remember -- winner will be drawn Wednesday night June 16!

    I have plenty o' stuff, so don't count me in, but a huge THANK YOU for your generosity and making this a TSD exclusive!

    Thanks to all for the responses! And I won't count this particular post (and any other posts in this thread that explicitly request *NOT* being counted) as the winning one if it comes up. I'll just re-draw out of the potential post numbers that actually are eligible.

    In short, what I'm saying is if you want to post in this thread, but do *not* want to win the prize -- post away!! I'm smart enough to figure out who wants in and who doesn't. ;)

    Good Luck to All!!!!

    I'd love to be counted! Unlike the menfolk in my family I am new to the wetshaving ritual; just started in May!

    (Also of note if I did win I'd do a PIF soon too. Karmic balance.)

    Man! You are just awesome with your generosity Jason. I would love to throw my hat in the ring just because it is so nice, but I must refrain. I got my own stuff and think I'm not new enough to be included.


    To the winner: If you aren't familiar with the stuff listed above, know that this is one sweet a$$ kit. You need to remember the generosity and reciprocate sometime in the future if/when you have the opportunity.
    My words above, NOT Jason's!

    Best of luck to all who enter :happy023

    Since believe it was my PM to Jason that caused his post above, I'll restate here:

    This is amazingly generous. Several products could be sold easily. Whoever wins this will have a superb shave kit.
    :happy096 Jason!
    I'm obviously not a Noobie and do not wish to be included.

    do NOT include, I just wanted to say WOW!
  15. Billr

    Billr Mix Master Mighty White!

    WOW that is one awesome kit! I have plenty of stuff and wish not to be included even thought there is a good amount of stuff that I would like to try. I just wanted to post to thank Jason for his generosity because he could sell that kit easily, and also to thank him for some inspiration as I am trying to put together a PIF of my own.

    I wonder if I count as a newbie? If so count me in, And if I get picked a brush and arko stick would do me and someone else could try the rest and with the left overs if allowed I would like to add Gem razor + 4 blades and penhaligons sent samples

    Jason, what a wonderful gesture. I hope this stuff goes to someone that will enjoy it (I can't imaging anyone that wouldn't).

    This is the sort of kindness that makes TSD a great place! You rock! :happy096:signs107::git:1respect
