Hi All,

I recently purchased a second OneBlade with the intention of sharing with family, friends AND the TSN community if there is interest.  Is there anyone out there that would like to give one a spin?

General requirements for participation
Active Shave Nook members in "good standing" are welcome to send me a PM regarding participating in the tour. I would suggest active and good standing infers you have been around TSN for at least a few months and are participating in the community. If you are active on other shaving forums and are new to TSN I will take that into consideration. And if you do not qualify today but have interest, you may become eligible as the tour unfolds...so please feel free to send me a message and I can add you to the "reserve" list. 

Following are the rules that I have used for each of the tours I have hosted, which are simply intended to keep the tour fair, fun and safe. 

1. Please limit your time with the gear to 7 days. This should be enough time for some quality shaves and impressions. There will be exceptions, and if you know ahead of time your schedule will be limited (e.g., vacation, job constraints, travel) please let me know so we can adjust the order and keep the momentum going.

2. The package will contain a OneBlade razor, OneBlade leather travel case, 40 Feather FHS blades and 100 Gem PTFE blades.  Each member is invited to use up to two of each blade, so the package I am sending should allow 20 members to try the razor.  If we have more than 20 interested members I will send additional blades onto the road when we reach that point.  

3. I am shipping the razor clean and sterilized. Please do the same before handing it off to the next member. Simple Green (preferred), soapy hot water, Barbicide and Scrubby Bubbles are fine.  Please do NOT use boiling water or bleach on the razor as it will cause irreversible damage that will not be covered under the warranty. 

4. Carefully wrap and ship the package as your means allow (e.g, USPS, UPS, FedEx). It will be shipping in a small Priority Mail flat rate box. If Priority Mail is a hardship, please switch to a clean, generic box and pack securely. The razor, case and blades in the package at valued at nearly $400, and there is an expectation that each participant agrees to insure the package for a minimum of $300 in order to replace the razor should something go awry.  Total costs for Priority Mail and insurance was approximately $11, which you might consider the "cost of admission" for the tour (though I am not collecting that $11).      

5. Communicate. Please post in this tour thread when you receive the razor and when it ships.  Upon receipt, please contact the next person on the list in order to have their shipping information on-hand when your time with the razor is over.  Please PM me as needed or if you have questions. It is never fun to track you down if you are in possession of the razor and have gone off the grid.  

6. Post reviews! Please share your impressions, good or bad, with your fellow TSN members.  

7. Have fun and...go Shave Nook!

Thanks TSN!

Michael, you are a very generous man indeed! 

If I resided in the US I'd definitely want the opportunity.

I'm of the opinion that once a razor commands a certain investment, it's these kinds of pass arounds that really keeps the product alive. If it weren't for Michael's Cobra pass around, it's unlikely I'd ever had tried one.

At the rather high investment of $299 I've resisted trying the OneBlade, I'm sure there are many others like me, well this is your chance!

Given the response I am committed to making this happen. I will be unable to get the tour going before the weekend, but will do so ASAP.

P.S. As Ben and Red Rider noted, at least to start, this will be a U.S. only tour due to the hassles of customs. However, I am willing to send it abroad after round 1 is over.
