    It's October 12th! My birthday! Let's celebrate and give YOU the chance to win a birthday gift!

    To celebrate, I'm offering up a "shave den in a box" to raise funds for our awesome The Shave Den forum!

    October 12, 12 razors - of several variants!

    All of these razors are in 'Great to Mint' condition including mechanics, except the GEM Micromatic which does have some scratches in the cap but is fully functional, looks great everywhere else and shaves perfectly as intended.

    4 - Double edge razors:
    • 1960 Gillette Fat Boy adjustable, F-1 date code
    • 1973 Gillette Aluminum Tech, T-4 1973 date code (my birth year and quarter!)
    • 2021 Yaqi open-comb Grand Shave King clone head pieces mated with a heavy duty Boss Razors handle
    • 2021 West Coast Shaving closed-comb head pieces also mated with a heavy duty Boss Razors handle

    • 1954-1958 Eversharp Hydro-Magic; Type I2 injector; solid bar guard; short black handle; gold-plated head; Hydro-Magic lever; the first to feature the Hydro-Magic lever for easy blade cleaning​
    • 1961-1963 Lady Eversharp Beauty Razor; Type K1 injector; solid bar guard; white handle with rare gold-plated head and gold-plated handle tip ferrule (the white handle versions were more commonly made with nickel-plated head and ferrule); Hydro-Magic lever​
    • 1961-1963 Lady Eversharp Beauty Razor; Type K1 injector; solid bar guard; turquoise handle; gold-plated head and gold-plated handle tip ferrule; Hydro-Magic lever​
    • 1973 Gillette Trac II Twin INJECTOR, rebranded in 1975 as the Twinjector; injector; solid bar guard; nickel-plated head and portion of top of the handle; black handle for the rest of the handle​

    That's 12 razors for October 12!! BUT there may be more when the winner receives the box! There may be a surprise or two!

    The Accessories also included:

    Blades for all variants of razors...
    • 100 NOS Voskhod double-edge blades - fantastic blades!
    • 1 NOS 1972 magazine/7 blades Schick Plus Platinum injector blades - fantastic blades!
    • 10 New Gem Personna coated single edge blades - fantastic blades!
    • Approximately 80 New half-double-edge-blades, mostly Shark brand but also a Try A Blade multi-brand pack so that you can figure out which one you really like!
    • A magazine of Feather Professional Artist Club-style blades. Hard to determine how many blades are left in the magazine but it looks like it is at least five or six - fantastic blades!
    • An Omega chrome razor and brush stand
    • New tube of Ach Brito Lavanda shaving cream
    • New Yaqi Aqua High Mountain Silvertip badger hair brush (Please note that the one in the pictures is my personal brush. I ordered a brand new one over a month ago for this raffle and tracking shows it is just now clearing customs. It may arrive after this raffle ends and if that becomes the case, I will send it to the winner separately.)

    So how do you win? Simple! First, please note that this raffle is only open to CONUS members only. With the current state of postal systems around the world and the huge increases in shipping prices, unfortunately I must limit this raffle to CONUS members only.

    Second, purchase an entry by making a $10 OR MORE donation to The Shave Den at this link:
    https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/theshaveden
    PLEASE NOTE: Please make sure you send your donation as a 'Friends and Family' payment, NOT as a 'Goods and Services' payment. This will ensure that TSD does not have to pay any PayPal fees on the donations.

    To give everyone a fair chance, only 1 entry per person, regardless of whether you donate the minimum $10 or any amount higher.

    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask, including if you would like more pictures of anything specific.​
