So here is what I have managed to put together (in the last month)... Let's see, I started with 2 DE's, 2 STR8s, Tabac/Polmolive/QCS samples, and a brush. Now I've got a wee bit of explaining to do when I get home as to how my stuff has multiplied.. oh, and i didn't take a pic of my naniwa stones, the half dozen practice razors, or the other dozen samples which fell from the sky! i'll apologize in advance for the B&B thing on the photo as that is the only way i could find to get a pic up on this computer.. On a positive note, that is where i found both of my TSN LE Shavemacs, which naturally led me here... Thanks for visiting!

Nice collection already! I think explaining about your shaving gear will be the last thing on your family's mind if they see you return, keep it safe!

Nice 'nook on the go' you've got there ... it likely rivals the 'home nooks' of many folks! Be safe, and happy shaves! Biggrin

Great shave den, particularly for someone who is deployed. I'm particularly impressed by your straight razor gear. It takes effort to use and maintain straights under your circumstances. And the ammo at the bottom of the picture is a nice touch!

Thank you for your service. Be safe and keep us informed.

Thanks everyone for the comments... It's not the family I'll have to explain to... just the wife!! i've already formulated "the plan" for getting my new gear back..
As for the straight razor gear, i started with two razors, a whipped dog strop, and the whipped dog balsa strop which was a loss during transit.. now i've got a star paddle and laptop strop, coticule, a set of naniwas, and a half dozen practice blades in need of some TLC. i figured now would be the best time to learn honing as i seem to have a little extra time on my hands...

Best of luck sharpening those blades; a great skill to acquire and maintain if you are using straights! Biggrin

For where you are that's a fantastic shave nook!

Is there any interest in the wash room when you're doing your thing?

A nice little nook, and much better stocked than mine was while I was on my tour of duty in South Sudan Biggrin

i just need to keep the AD's in order otherwise it'll cost me a small fortune to ship it all back home!!

i did get one guy started out. been letting him borrow my gear over the past few weeks, and he just got his own starter kit yesterday from a generous member on another board... I'll be letting him cycle through my gear as well so he can nail down what works for him and what doesn't. others have shown interest as it is something they haven't seen before, but very few would are willing to try. most of these guys are so used to rushing through the process that they cannot accept change. it all starts in boot camp.. i don't even remember using shaving cream at all back then.. just water.. we were always on the clock..

Your serving your country in the armpit of the world so you owe NO explanations to anyone. I took care of the B&B thing.

Thanks for the picture, but most important, thanks for your service. Stay safe.

They don't ship it home free of charge anymore? I can't remember how much we could ship free or for next to nothing. But that was '73. I know I shipped home 3 foot lockers and it cost me nothing or next to nothing. I only lost 1 chronograph stolen out of the foot lockers since keys needed to be attached to them.

No free shipping... unless it is base to base and stays in the military post system... last yr it cost me about $50+/- to ship my footlocker home so I am expecting the same... these are way better than the old wooden boxes.. heavy abs plastic; made by hardigg.

i try to keep everything covered when not in use. the dust out here is heinous... we call it moon dust because the stuff has a baby-powder like consistency and it gets into everything.. it also does a number on our electronics equipment.. especially the commercial stuff.
