[Image: XSbuYza.jpg]  I think I'm finally set.  Maybe a few more of the less expensive razors coming, but I've got my soap and blade selections down pat.  My brushes, I believe, are finished as well.  The ten brushes in the panel-shaped holder are all Simpson's.  I also have a few more in a closet, as well as five Shavemacs, three Rooneys [two of which are of the two-band variety], a MF blonde, a Wiborg white, a New Forest Tubby 2 and a Tipsoft "Manchurian" ( Babeando ). 

I hope you gents get half as much pleasure assembling the "stuff" as I did.

Below is close-up of soaps in a made-to-order lucite display case.

I also put some soaps in two, adjustable displays that I got at Container Store.                [Image: MddeVQD.jpg]

The brushes are all on vintage rubber stamp holders.  That includes the big rectangular one holding my Simpsons, and the two carousel-type holders on either side.

Last, and hopefully least, are my currently rotated razors in some nifty wooden test tube racks - eBay or Amazon - not pricey.  The front row are all Ikons, which I am giving a comparison round of shaves with using Rapira Platinum Lux blades.  I am finding this blade to be excellent with the Ikons, even the somewhat nippy OCs.

Thanks for dropping by.

Close-ups w/in 36 hours.  I had to take a far away, wide angle shot because the space is so small I was really on top of it.


To all others, thanks for your comments.

Great set up. Please do not let any shaving addicts near your store, they'll shop lift your stuff and run you out of business. Smile
