So I'm not 100% on the membership experience but here's what I have, after being into this hobby I've got a little stash of items intended for someone new or thinking of getting into wetshaving. It's everything but aftershave. Right now it's CONUS as I'm planning on just shoving it all into a flat rate box. If someone international wants in that's cool but I will ask you be willing to send a few dollars my way if shipping is substantially more than the US priority rates, (and it won't be priority type in that event).

Anyway on with the show. If there's no interest Ill post this on another board after the draw date of the 15th. Just say 'I'm in', all I ask is the normal PIF rules of you intend to use or re-pif it at some point.

[Image: Lk4bdGRl.jpg?1]

Included are:
A 40's style X4 superspeed
An ugly brush I had used too much epoxy 'restoring'. Heavy handle, pure badger knot
A 60%+ old formulation Proraso shave soap cream
A mashed up arko stick in a bag
10 Permasharp blades
5 Gillette Silver Blue blades
At least 5 Feather blades. Maybe more? Not sure how many are in there.

List so far:
1.Jabberwock
2.wrfd306
3.ElliotR
4.jmsodpc

Thanks Mike! I wasn't sure on if there were many newer folks on this board but wanted to try! No hard feelings if there aren't any takers to draw from for it!

I ran a similar PIF in January and there weren't as many entries then as I thought either. I'd say leave it up until the posted end time. This is a great setup for a newbie and I'm sure some of them will take advantage of it.

*I'm not in BTW Wink

It doesn't get much better than a '40's style Super Speed. One of my favorite razors in my nook is a '53 Super Speed. A 60 year old razor that works as good as it did when it was fresh out of the package. It just can't be beat.

Great PIF.

I'm NOT in, but thanks for putting this up.

A whole starter set, wow. Much nicer than the stuff I started with, too. I agree it should go to someone that is just starting to assemble a nook of their own, so please don't enter me. Nice gear, though!

I'm in. I am working on getting my brother some gear. He doesn't have the money to get his own gear and he's had a difficult year, this would go a long way toward getting him a good complete set up.

Just wanted to say thanks again. Got the set yesterday and tried it out this morning. Love the Proraso! It was my first menthol shave.
