EDIT: The price was dropped on the Grosvenor (thanks incucrush for the heads up). I based my price on a single visit to a site selling them for $49 but I found a couple of others selling them for $27 - 30. That's a great brush for only $25. The tube cream lot is still available, as is the "starter lot." Everything else is either pending or sold. Thanks B&B members for helping me clean out some space in the shave cabinet!
Prices include paypal fees and shipping anywhere in the ConUS. I have no problem shipping anywhere else, just please send me a PM and I'll give you a fair price.
From left to right:Tube cream lot: Spieck, Erasmic, Lavanda, & Musgo Real - $20 shipped ** SOLD **
I'm not much of a soap guy but these creams just didn't work for me, unfortunately. They have all been used a bit but they are are all more than 50% full still.
Soap and Cream Tubs:
The Shave Library Tom & Huck - $15 ** SOLD **
This is a great performing cream - or croap, rather - but it's not quite the tobacco scented cream I was looking for.
Acca Kappa 1869 - $15 ** SOLD **
I used to think this was the best Italian cream on the market and have always loved it's performance and scent, but these days I prefer P160.
La Toja Manantiales in wooden bowl - $40 ** SOLD **
I used a razor to slice off a thin margin from the bottom because I was afraid to ruin the bowl by lathering in it (see pics), but the cellophane on the top is still there, I never pulled it off. I love the performance of this soap, it's amazing, but I'm a cream guy and never reach for it.
Tabula Rasa Vetiver & Tangerine - $20 ** PENDING **
I love TR creams but I prefer the Dark Lavender and always bypass this one in reaching for the DL. This is a little more than 50% full despite the picture (these are shipped by weight and not size, often arriving looking half used already).
Vulfix Grosvenor 404 mixed badger/boar brush - $25 ** SOLD **
Honestly, I love this brush, but it's seldom in the front of the herd. I've always thought the handle was one of the better of my collection and loved the backbone and softness of the combo, but honestly this is better suited for soaps, in my opinion, as I've said, I'm not a soap guy. I prefer my badgers, actually, and even the horsehair I just tried last night. So, in an effort to thin the den, this one should go despite how much I want to keep it. It has been used a couple dozen times and lost maybe a couple of hairs in that time.
Two Gillette Old Type Pocket Editions - "Good" one is SOLD! "Yucky" one is still available...
These are both relisted items if I'm not mistaken, so I'm going to lowball them. One is a completely functional and good razor but the case is not in the best of shape (it's the one on the left, obviously) but the other one is in great condition, looks fantastic.
$10 for the yucky one (remember that includes shipping etc.) and $20 for the other.
** SOLD ** Finally, I don't know what to call this, I guess it's a starter kit. I'm pricing this for what I paid for the brush only and throwing in the rest. $35 for all four: an Edwin Jagger badger brush with travel tube, a couple of aftershave balms (balms just make me break out, I need a splash), and another old type with a few bent corner teeth. I've been considering taking it to the office for the occasional emergency shave or post stressful meeting therapeutic shave but I've decided on another razor for that task. It's $35 shipped for all four, folks.I'll add additional photos on follow up posts.
