Below are some pictures of a vintage travel kit I that I'd like to trade or sell. As per the instructions that are still in the box the kit contains: razor (date code W-4 tells me it's a 1951 Tech), shaving brush, soap stick, after-shave lotion, after-shave powder, toothbrush, tooth paste, comb, nail file,& 2 razor blades. Instructions detail that it is intended for weekend or short trip use.

The box says Grimes - New York / London (David Grimes MFG CO, NY)

Here you can see the kit along with a replacement tooth paste & soap stick.

A better look at the razor. I doubt it's ever been used.

Yes, good luck with the sale.

Brian, just out of curiousity, what does that synthetic brush feel like?

I believe that it's nylon. Very soft & very floppy when wet IIRC from when I cleaned it. I've not used anything in this kit.
