My Humble Shave Den... :-D
This is my slightly 'less' humble Shave Den
Above the wood shelf is a bar towel I got from the Royal Wessex Pub on a trip to Somerset, England years ago (and fell in love with Badger First Gold Ale), that I thought would look nice because it states “Established 1777, BADGER, Dorset Ales with Real Character”.
On the wood shelf (from left to right) is my Em’s Place Inc. Blade Bank, alcohol in a spray bottle (for razor sterilization), a pipe glass jar (inside is a wine cork [for ‘corking’ blades], tweezers, Shark Super Chrome Blades, VDH Deluxe Shave Soap and Clubman Dab-on Nick Relief), Acrylic 2 razor (Merkur 23C & 38C), - 2 Brush (restored Ever-Ready’s 200T Finest Badger [right] and F40 Horsehair [left], brushes), razor & brush stand (made by Shane Silcox; owner of ‘Cutting Edge Razors’), in 'clear' color with engraving ("CBJ” and “A Great Lather is Half the Shave"), and finally my small (4oz), vintage Pinaud ‘glass' bottle filled with Clubman Citrus Musk.
NOTE: Under the shelf and attached (drill holes into handles, screw in flat end of toilet screws into handles, then screw handles into shelf), are 3 old brushes just for decoration.
Below the shelf is my Razor Blade Wrapper Frame (got the idea from member 'jk3campbell'), and extra wrappers from members 'delisle' and 'Red Ketchup' (thanx guys... ).
In the below image, on the sink to the left is my Robert Becker Scuttle (medium size with Lid and Wine Cork Stopper), 'Cactus Sand' Scuttle, Muehle® Chrome Travel Brush & Razor Holder, Sears & Roebuck Ceramic Shaving mug and my 'own' Sterling Silver Baby Cup (that I use a traveling shaving mug), my Mother finally gave me (as my family Keepsake), many...many 'moons' ago, that is engraved with my full name & birth date plus these quotes;
"To Smoke is Human...To Smoke Cigars is Divine" & "A Great Lather is Half the Shave"
