Thanks to SteelTown generosity here, I'm in a position where I can offer a couple of "Starter Kits".

Depending on shipping cost I may be able to send 1 kit outside of CONUS (no guarantee until I establish what it would cost me to do so).

If you would like one of these kits please post your interest within this thread; personally I would rather these PIF's go to people new or just starting out in wetshaving.

Sunday week (22nd April) I will then choose 2 random people to receive these kits...

PIF "Starter Kit 1"

[Image: hvTfB.jpg]
  • Neutrogena facial cleansing bar "fragrance free" (pre-shave soap)
  • Omega #10051 (Boar) shaving brush
  • 5 random DE blades
  • VITOS (red label) shaving soap "sample"
  • Truefitt & Hill 1805 shave cream "sample"
  • Truefitt & Hill 1805 aftershave balm "sample"
  • The Real Shaving Co "Soothing Balm"

PIF "Starter Kit 2"

[Image: KzHFe.jpg]
  • Neutrogena facial cleansing bar "fragrance free" (pre-shave soap)
  • Omega #50068 (Boar) shaving brush
  • 5 random DE blades
  • VITOS (red label) shaving soap "sample"
  • Truefitt & Hill Grafton shave cream "sample"
  • Truefitt & Hill Grafton aftershave balm "sample"
  • The Real Shaving Co "Soothing Balm"

This PIF is now closed, and by the looks of things I don't have to choose 2 random people, seeing as only 2 people entered...

Striky (lives in Norway I believe), via PM please let me know which "Starter Kit" of the 2 on offer you prefer (seeing as you were first to enter) and your shipping address -- As long as shipping cost to Norway isn't ridiculously expensive I will get the "Starter Kit" of your choosing to you.

deoxy4 (assuming you live somewhere within CONUS or shipping cost elsewhere isn't going to get me in further trouble with SWMBO) I will send you the other "Starter Kit", via PM please send me your shipping address.

Striky (sorry no tracking number as USPS wanted an additional 90% to the cost of shipping for that privilege) and deoxy4 (I'll send your tracking number via PM) your "Starter Kit's" went in the post yesterday evening.

I added 3 random DE blades to each kit, making a total of 8 random DE blades in each. Also to each kit I added a yellow sample pot containing Taylor Of Old Bond Street "Avocado" shaving cream.

Edit: Fixed grammar.

Got my starter kit today! It was excellent.

Is the Vito's Red Label shaving soap the same as Vitos Extra Super Shave Cream?

Hi Øystein

Good to hear it got to you so quickly Smile

Yes, it's a sample of this, "VITOS (Red Label) Sapone per Barba Extra Super Shave Soap".

Take care, Mike
