Gents,

What is the ONE item in your den that you wouldn't be without? Could be razor, brush, soap, etc.

What say you?

Hmm that really is a hard one! I don't think I could be without at least a few of my brushes, namely the Rooney Finest 3/3.

Water is the best answer so far.

Razors, blades, lather and brushes can be replaced and/or improvised. Water is the one constant.

If I didn't have whiskers, I wouldn't need the kit, so...

How the heck can you have just ONE item when shaving requires complementing items? Staying with the question: money would be my one item.

Hmm, I was going to say a razor blade. While totally dangerous and uncomfortable, I could dry shave. Not very closely mind you. But, water is a clever answer.

The question was more what is the one thing you can't be without, like, I love my wolfman razor etc. Not the one thing you need to do a shave.

You can shave with just water, but nobody has put forward the means.
My MITCHELLS WOOL FAT ceramic dish. It was long in coming, a deeply appreciated gift  and embodies my whole BBC UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS- DOWNTON ABBEY-THE ADVENTURES OF SHELOCK HOLMES ( the definitive Jeremy Brett) gentleman's shaving kit and damn all those Steampunks for making it impossible to don some fun, Walter
Mitty collectables: Which I sold to them at exhorbitant markups. You want a pith helmet, California felony to possess sword cane, calabash pipe? Talk to the wallet. Euro

Right now mine would be any glissant b&m soap. They are amazing.

I really do love the bowl I got recently, but I have a hard time saying it's essential when I could face lather or use a cereal bowl... I guess I'd say my Fatboy. It's the razor I gravitate to most frequently.

I could also say my wife's soap, but I'm biased, so I'll stick with my Fatboy.

O.K. no one replied. SHAVING WITH ONLY WATER. I was in arctic survival school up in Alaska. Everyone was eating these gawdawful cornflake survival bars with the consistency of particle board and candy packets in yellow,green,red and orange. I cheated, sewing chocolate bars and beef jerky into my parka before leaving. There was a reserve USAF senior non com sporting a massive handlebar moustache. Apparently he would STUFF the ends in his mouth on active duty and for dress inspections. But that third night around the fire he had it on full display and waxed-- and frozen solid with tiny icecycles. This USAF guy reached over and tapped one bar. It snapped clean off. Not to be outdone in interservice rivalry; a coastie decided he could shave by freezing water on  and slapping his 3 day beard off. He did, and went to hospital with frostbite to his cheeks. I was inside my coffin sized survival trench eating a Hershey bar.
