Hi everyone -


Up for sale today are a number of items I've accumulated and just don't use much, for various reasons which will be discussed further below. All prices include CONUS shipping. Any item over $20 I will ship via USPS Priority Mail (with tracking), and any item under $20 I will ship via USPS First Class (please add $1 for tracking). For international buyers, we can negotiate shipping.

(1) Merkur Futur in satin. No box. This is a great adjustable razor and, while I am the second owner, its in great condition, with the typical minor scuff marks in the satin finish. I've pretty much transitioned to Feather AC-type straights and, while I have kept a DE razor, this is not the one. And while I like the idea of adjustables, I prefer fixed-head razors. I bought it for $60 about two months ago so I was thinking of selling it for $50. If you want, I will include a sample tube of Art of Shaving unscented cream as a bonus. SOLD! Thanks Dave and SN!

(2) Simpson Colonel X2L. With box. 21mm knot, 47mm loft (but of course Simpson's specs can be all over the place). I love this handle, but after using my Rooney Finest pretty much exclusively, I'm not as in love with its softer face-feel. I actually just acquired it this weekend (thanks again, oasis man) in trade for a NIB Martin de Candre. X2Ls have recently sold for $50 so that's what I'm setting mine at: $50. SOLD!

(3) Taylor Old Bond Street Grapefruit cream. Used twice, so maybe 95% remaining? I love the scent and it goes really well with citrusy aftershaves or EdTs. I just don't reach for it between MdC and other soap pucks I have. I bought it new from Amazon about a month ago for $17 so I was thinking $15 for this one. SOLD!

(4) 90 Feather Hi-Stainless DE blades. Still wrapped. Like I wrote before, I've transitioned to Feather AC type straights so I have no need for this many blades (the only reason there aren't 100 is because I held onto 1 pack). I bought these from Italian Barber, and a 100 pack goes for $48, so I figured $30 would be a good price. SOLD!

(5) GEM Featherweight. Original box. I bought an injector off of eBay recently, and for some reason the seller included this in the package. It was in pretty cruddy condition when I got it (it still had a used blade in it with some rusting), but some Scrubbing Bubbles and a toothbrush, and the head has a mirror finish now. Other than a few tiny flea bites, its in mint condition. The box's paper hinge is broken, but otherwise its in nice shape, with the original instructions, and (I assume) an unused vintage blade. User grade Featherweights seem to be going for $10 so I figured $20 would be a fair price. SOLD! Thanks matloffm and SN!

(6) Williams Mug Soap. New in Box. I still haven't even taken the wrapper off it. I would love to try it but I have so many open soaps that are going to take too much time to finish before I could get at this, and I figure someone else will like this more than I would. My guess is that this was made in either 1975 or 1976 because of the offer for the bicentennial pewter mug. I have no idea what this would sell for, so I thought $10 would be fair. SOLD!

As always, feel free to comment on my prices in this thread. If you have any specific questions or comments, please PM me. I keep everything at my office (hence the background photo and the terrible fake wood-paneling!) so I will either get sold items out the same day or day after.

Thanks for looking,
Josh

Josh, you mention Simpson specs being all over the place: is that brush a 21/47 knot as measured or are those numbers the official specs? Or both?

Great prices and items, and I don't need a new brush, but...

I've seen those specs listed somewhere. I think the "average" is 22mm/48mm but it goes from 21-23 and 47-49. I don't have calipers so I'm guessing, quite honestly.
