- A Soap Stand
- A shave bowl (with lid)
- A bucket or cup or razors (etc.)
For your viewing pleasure!

Miyazaki Shaving Set
Partially inspired by the work of Hayao Miyazaki, the Ghost, his companion bucket & soap cake stand are a modern shaving set designed in 2010 by David Kim. The soap stand can be held like a wine glass making it easier to prepare your lather as well as showing off your lovely soap when not in use; the Ghost is the mixing bowl - his mouth provides a lip to remove the top as an additional lather dish; & the bucket container is large enough to hold all your razors, toothbrushes & other bathroom supplies. All the pieces are made of molded plastic & the mixing bowl as well as the bucket have form fitted recessed bottoms to fit comfortably in your hand.
Straight razor shaving is an amazingly designed closed system - it provides the closest shave while making you acutely aware of a daily ritual / process all while being incredibly fun. Oh, it's completely sustainable as well - you can use one razor for the rest of your life.
The other products shown are Mitchell's Wool Fat shaving soap, a Rooney Super Badger brush & a 1/4 Hollow Theirs Issard Le Grelot.
