It's time to clean out the Den a bit...so I'm offering up some of the razors and products that I've acquired that I can't justify keeping for myself.
Apollo No. 111G: $49 shipped SOLD! THANKS B&B!
This is a beautiful vintage three-piece DE razor from Apollo in excellent to near-mint condition, with an ivory-colored fluted handle. This razor looks like a mild shaver, but it's actually quite aggressive. This is the only reason that I'm parting with it: it's just too aggressive for me. The head is very shiny and in great shape. The only flaws I can find with it are some scuffs to the chrome(?) finish on the end of the handle, and what looks like a slight casting flaw in the ivory plastic fluting at the end. I bought it advertised as NOS and have only used it twice. It comes with three vintage blades and the original shipper (which has some shop wear).
Wizamet W-11 Adjustable:
$28 shippedREDUCED: $25 SHIPPED
Looking like some amalgam of a Super Adjustable, a Knack, and a Sticky, this aggressive vintage Polish-made adjustable DE razor is not often seen state-side. The brass casting is rough and the overall mechanical quality isn't up there with its Western contemporaries, but it is arguably a unique piece of shaving history. The ribbed ring just below the adjustment ring opens the butterfly doors. Even on the lowest setting, it's much too aggressive for my tastes, so I'm offering it up for sale here, hoping it finds an appreciative new home.
Vie-Long 13061 Horse-hair brush. $18 shipped SOLD! THANKS B&B!
This is a lovely brush, but with a loft of about 55mm it's just a bit too floppy for my taste. I prefer my brushes shorter and with lots of backbone. I bought it in February on the BST, and have used it only about 2-3 times since. The top of the brush seems a bit asymmetrical, and though I don't think it affects performance, I thought I should make note of it and adjust the price accordingly.
Tom's of Maine Calendula cream: $7 shipped per tube or $13 for both SOLD! THANKS B&B!
I am offering two tubes of Tom's of Maine Calendula cream for sale. This is a now-discontinued but great-performing cream with a subtle, clean scent. I stocked up when I saw some for sale on the BST over a year ago, but I don't think I will ever get through the tubes I'm keeping. The boxes are still sealed/unopened.
Prices include first-class USPS shipping to CONUS and Paypal fees. Add $1.80 for insurance.
Please PM me with any questions. I'll ship within three business days of payment, sooner if possible. International shipping can be worked out for additional cost. Please be advised that I can only ship internationally on Saturdays.
Note: if you feel that my prices are too high for these items, or the pictures or text not descriptive enough, please let me know. I tried to price them reasonably according to other offerings I saw. Thanks!
Thanks for looking!
