    For a while, I've been wanting to put together a case for my Gold Black Beauty as originally they came in blister packs. On @mr-razor's site, I noticed one was only available for these razors sold in Japan. Then when I saw someone selling this wood box, which was close to the dimensions I needed, I had to get it. After using my leftover Ebay Bucks, I only had to spend about $2.00 for it shipped..........

    This is from @mr-razor's site showing the Gold Black Beauty case from Japan..........

    I sanded the finish so I could use Red Mahogany stain to darken the wood. I need more clear coats, but I ran out and will finish it later. I had this material lying around, slightly lighter than the original, but good enough. I used dense foam and some cardboard to form the interior and top inside of the cover. Then lined it all. This pic showing the outside after staining and adding the rear hinges and front latch..........

    And the case completed with my razor, and a blade dispenser. I doubt I'll ever find the correct dispenser, made in Japan, but I'll have to look around and find the correct one for the year of my razor, O3. I think it's a silver one and black letters that came with this razor originally. And now my razor has a new home..........
