Well, I am very fast approaching my 5,000th non BST / non-parlor games post. I am working on a gift PIF to give away to the lucky recipient who guesses closest to when I actually hit the post.

Rules:
  1. Open to everyone, including mods (this breaks a normal "mods can't enter PIFs" rule, but I am a rule breaker)
  2. You must enter a date and time (I will be going off my local time (CDT (GMT -5))
  3. Entries must be made before 5pm (my time) tomorrow (Wednesday) to be valid (that gives you one day to figure out an exact time).
  4. Times must be guessed in 15 minute increments, and you can't pick a date / time combo which has been chosen. i.e. 2:15 pm. Not a random 15 minute interval.
  5. USA members only. Due to weight and the AfterShaves, this will be too costly to ship Internationally, and the alcohol in the AS will make International shipments near impossible.
The package is still being put together, but assume some soaps, perhaps a brush, perhaps a razor, some AS ........

It will be a nice selection and will have to go in a flat rate box so I'm going to be out some decent shipping charges too .....

FINAL ITEMS going in the box:
NEW - Parker DE Razor (It's still incoming to me...)
NEW - Straight Razor Design Vetiver shave soap
NEW - Coates Tea Tree Shave Cream
85% of the large bottle of LaToja Aftershave. I just have too many Aftershaves and I keep ordering more
90% bottle of the lovely Eaton College
Lightly used Omega 1005 brush
Custom RV handle waiting for a knot. This came to me as a very light unfinished handle, and I have over time added perhaps 20+ coats of semi-gloss tung oil to it to protect it from water. It's become a very rich color over this time and it's quite lovely IMO.
Hammered copper shave mug from bestshave.net One of the coolest cheap purchases I have made in my life, but I need to free up room

Something very unique will go into the box which may be of interest to even the most experienced user. I guarantee you that item is going to generate a lot of comments and interest.

Now that the PIF is over, here's what the unique item is (just a copy paste from a post of mine below)

Now, about that "unique item" I hinted at as a means to entice entries. I have no recollection where I picked this up at. Some antique store, or monthly flea market at a fairgrounds or what ....

But I have a complete POK-KIT travel shave kit. This particular kit is in a form fitting bakelite case (no chips or cracks) labeled "Hatcher Motors, Inc. Fort Wayne, Indiana" I looked up the company and only found very old news clippings, it appears the dealer went out of business in the early 50s. Inside the case is a gold plated Gillette Ball Tech (some minor plating wear from where the top of the razor site against the case), a mostly unused tube of Williams Glider Shave Cream, a box of Gillette Blue Blades containing one still unwrapped blade and a still sealed travel toothbrush. I don't recall what I paid, I don't have a clue what it's worth, I obviously must have thought I found something interesting, but I've never done anything with it and after a few years just sitting in a storage box, it deserves a chance at a new home.


Gentlemen (and Ladies) start your guessing .........
