Up for sale are some items that are not seeing much use lately.

First, some straights.

They're all in pretty nice shape, but not perfect, as they're all vintage blades. I have used most of them (except the Wostenholm) and they shave really well.

1) Les Croix full hollow - 9/16" - $37 shipped CONUS

This is a really nice straight, and was in my regular rotation until I pulled it for this sale. I have others like it, and I really have to cut down on the den, so this is for sale.

It has nice scales with an inlay, and the blade is in nice shape for the most part. There is a bit of oxidation damage at the spine hear the tang, as can be seen in the pics.

It is tight in the scales and closes properly, but the scales are a bit warped. They do not touch the blade at any point, so it's more a cosmetic thing.

2) Wostenholm Pipe razor (Just over 3/8" wide - slightly hollow) - $25

This is a nice pipe razor, but it does have a bit of wear at the spine. The front scale is cracked at the wedge end, but it's stable and will not be an issue.

Wostenholm made some of the best blades in Sheffield, and this is a pretty good one. Needs to be touched up.

3) Moler 11/16" full-hollow - $47

This is a really good straight, that took an excellent edge and is a pleasure to shave with. It was also in my regular rotation.

It is a Moler - which was made for a Barber School (Moler, as you can see from the tang stamps). It has a nice blade, and lovely scales - transparent celluloid, with an inlay.

It looks nice and shaves brilliantly.

The brushes:

1) Semogue 2011 LE boar #2 - $77

This is an excellent brush that just didn't do it for me. I like it as a brush, but not enough to keep it, so it's up for sale.

The pics tell the tale. It has no cosmetic or shedding issues or anything.

2) Vie-Long BSG2012 Horse/badger mix - $42

This is a really lovely brush, with an absolutely excellent handle. No issues whatsoever, but it isn't seeing much time in the rotation.

These sell for $50 + shipping from Bullgoose. Take it for $42 shipped.

3) FOR TRADE: Deckelman Bros handle with a 28mm TGN Finest knot

This is an excellent restoration (not done by me). The Deckelman Bros handle is in lovely shape. It was weighted before the reknot, making it a very balanced brush. The knot is lovely and works great.

It's just larger than I like.

I'd like to trade it for a reknotted vintage brush with a smaller knot. Please send me pics and details of what you have, and we can work from there.

Jeff -

I use knots up to 24 mm usually. About 20 mm would fit my requirements best.

All sold except the Wosty and the BGS2012.

Sale is ended, as I'm going to try and raise the knot of the BGS (I find the loft too short). If that doesn't work out, the handle is destined for a TGN finest knot. Smile

Thanks everyone.
