    Perfect for me right now, but the wise love of my life also bought a backup! Maybe she sees something I don't

    I could see where a seasoned collector could use one as an overnight dapper transport module.

    Today's mail included a pack of Schick Pro Line P-30 blades. And a Gillette Big Fellow case from @Jrdelgado that needs a little care. Also a couple of cigar and pipe tobacco catalogs.

    Technically, this was a June acquisition, last week I received a Canadian Khaki Set from an auction purchase.

    This is one of those sets that is a bit of an enigma. The case has definitely seen a lot of use and the blade bank is missing. OTOH, this is probably one of the nicest Techs that I have ever seen with no a beautiful finish and virtually no brassing.

    Oddly, the set also came with this random piece:
    I think that's a one-piece Rolls handle, if I'm not mistaken. Of course, I don't own a Rolls, so I'm not sure if I should trade this away or just wait until I get a Rolls. :)

    My wife has a “crash cart” for some of her hair and makeup supplies. I think we got it at Sally Beauty. You often see them in salons.

    Yours is definitely much more masculine.

    Apparently, unlike Gillette in the USA, Gillette in Canada made Khaki sets for WWII. Achim's site shows a couple of styles:
    Which is the one I have, but with a fat handle rather than a two-piece. And this one:
    which is more of an update of the Khaki Pocket Set.

    Love the military sets. And it is super cool you have the mirror! I may have a blade holder somewhere like that. If I find it your welcome to it if you like.

    Yes, you are correct, that is a handle for a Rolls razor. Now you have an excuse to buy a Rolls razor:D

    I was pleasantly surprised to find the mirror. As for the blade holder, I would really appreciate it, if you happen to find it. Thanks!

    At the checkout at Big Lots today were four cans of Axe Urban antiperspirant spray for a nickel per. That's right, five cents each. Clerk had no idea why but since the scent was not horrible, especially at that price, and the girls liked it as not a strictly male frag, they bought em out.

    So good day at Fuzzy's den today. After looking at the one bad picture on a auction for a Auto Strop A2 I decited it was worth the risk for $15 and $8 shipping......yesss it was. For a couple of reasons.
    First one is the A2. It is very dusty but in great shape.


    Second was this blade bank that will go to @John Ruschmeyer if he wants it. The red box is NOS Durham Duplex blades.


    So I popped open the Gillette blade bank and lookie here!!


    These look really nice. Just might get a vintage shave from one.

    Nice score! Generally one bad pic leads to a totally different direction.
