My girlfriend and I would like to send a thank you out to all of the men and women who have served, or are presently serving, as a member of our Armed Forces.
So - Thank You - each and every one of you.
To express our gratitude - we'd like to post an 'Active Duty' PIF.
1 straight razor
1 leather strop
1 cotton/linen hanger
1 hone and some accoutrements
1 Boar brush
1 Puck of Tallow Soap
All of the kit's contents (except the soap) will be used and fully functional. The soap will be unused but not 'new'.
The Razor will be shave ready to my standards. I just shaved with it two nights ago and I think it's got a pretty good edge.
Photo of what's in the kit, along with some details of each item, will be posted after we get back from dinner tonight.
Must be US Military, active duty, preferably stationed overseas.
The PIF will be shipped to you at your APO address.
Participant should have real interest in Straight Shaving.
Should also have strong interest in maintaining/honing their own edges.
For obvious reasons, we would prefer to send this kit to someone that does not have a straight, hone or strop - but that's not an absolute rule.
If you'd like to toss your hat into the ring, please PM me with some details about your interest in straights, honing, where you're stationed, stuff like that.
I don't want to set a final submission date right now - I've never done a PIF like this, so I'd like to play it by ear so we can see how it goes. If that's against the PIF rules or something, please let me know.
