Edit: Winner chosen! Thanks for playing.

There comes a time in every new wet shaver's life when he really start to learn what his preferences are. After the beginner phases of learning, experimentation, and of course Acquisition Disorder, he starts to narrow things in his den down to what works best.

I am very grateful to the wet shaving community, through whose generosity I was able to try and experiment with more equipment than I would have been able to on my own. Now though, some of that equipment isn't getting used as much as it deserves so it is time to move it along.

So today I offer up a brush and a soap that have been PIF'ed to me in the past.

First up is the Comoy Super Badger. According to the original owner this is a Vulfix 376S re-branded for the Comoy chain of stores. It has a 24mm knot and 100mm overall height.

Next up is the Local Pig cream originally PIF'ed by user Tonality in this thread: http://shavenook.com/thread-this-local-p...w-home-pif
This cream performs well and is made from a very low number of ingredients, but due to that I have no idea what the shelf life is and it isn't fair to the soap to let it sit on my shelf.

Sorry int'l folks, but I'm limiting this to CONUS. The only other restriction is that entrants must have at least 10 posts here, one of which is an introduction in the Introductions area.

And because I'm neither clever nor creative, posting a simple "I'm in!" will get you entered. I will pick a winner via random number drawing on Thursday May 16th, so the entry cutoff is 11:59 PM EST on the 15th.

I'll try to edit in some pictures later tonight when I get the chance.

Great pif- I'm in! I don't have a badger brush, just the original Omega boar brush I initially bought when I first started wet shaving.

Sure, I'm in! I guess I've never given a Badger a real chance, so let me at it. As for the Local Pig, well the pics in that PIF were priceless - especially SavJoe's!

Reminder, this closes Wednesday night so there's still plenty of time to get in.

For those who are curious about the brush, like other Vulfix this one is on the less dense/floppy side. Still a very good brush, but don't expect it to have backbone like a 2-band badger. It's probably better suited for bowl lathering.

Wooohoooo! Thank you for this generous PIF! I have wanted to try this cream for a while now and I have never owned a badger hair brush before, so I look forward to giving this stuff a go. Thank you!
