Hi everyone -


Some more interesting items up for sale today. These prices include CONUS shipping; everything but the 830 and the DRH Lavender I will send via USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. I will ship the 830 and DRH Lavender via First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation. For international buyers we can negotiate shipping price (I usually try to meet halfway).

(1) Barbasol Floating Head razor. This razor's reputation is incredible, and my gut is that this is what the Muhle R41 "toothcomb" was trying to be. Its aggressive without drawing blood and a nice hefty weight.

I bought this in user-grade condition from the BST here and had it replated in black rhodium. Its a gorgeous looking razor, with a shiny black exterior...But there is a big issue. The plating on the underside of the head has been flaking away. Its currently stable but I cannot guarantee that it won't flake more. It looks worse in the picture than in person. I am pricing it accordingly. I purchased it for $60 and had it replated for $60. If the plating comes off more, I would assume its pretty much user-grade underneath or of course you could just get the head replated. I am going to take a bath on this, but I am listing it for $60. SOLD! Thanks P Funk and The Shave Nook!

(2) Vintage Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet. This is the vintage tallow-based soaps that Bullgoose unearthed for awhile about a month ago. I have the vintage English Fern and like it alot. I am just not going to get to this anytime soon. I bought it for $55 and I haven't even unwrapped it at all, so I'd like to get back what I paid: $55. SOLD! Thanks jfmii and The Shave Nook!

(3) D.R. Harris Arlington and Lavender soaps. These of course have a great reputation. However, like the Penhaligon's above, I am just not going to get to these anytime soon. I bought these from Teiste here in early June and I haven't used them at all. He stated that the Arlington was used only twice and that the Lavender has 85% left. That looks about right to me. I am selling the Arlington for $25 and the Lavender for $22. Both SOLD! Thanks Shave Nook!

(4) Semogue 830 banded boar brush. 23mm knot/55mm loft. Big, glorious boar brush with all the Semogue hallmarks. I bought this on Badger & Blade, but haven't used it; its just too big for me. This has a beautiful acrylic handle with a vibrant red. I bought this for $20 (with a tub of RazoRock). I was thinking $17 would be a good price. SOLD! Thanks The Shave Nook!

As always, feel free to comment about my prices and descriptions in this thread. Any other comments or questions, feel free to PM me.

Thanks for looking,
Josh

If y'all are on the fence about getting a Barbasol Floating Head, I would err on the side of getting it. These razors are easily one of my favorites, they don't come up for sale that often and shave like they mean business. As has been pointed out above, you can always get the head replated if the current plating deteriorates.

Update - the Barbasol is sold! Thanks P Funk and The Shave Nook!

Oscar is right - regardless of the issue with this particular Barbasol or whether you find a user-grade one, the Barbasol is a great razor. Lengthy and hefty, with an aggressive head, but not overly aggressive.
