Gentlemen,

I have two items for sale: Blackland's Sabre GEM razor, and the Thater 4425/4 in the 29mm knot two-band silvertip. The prices include U.S. shipping. Paypal is fine; no trades, please.

1.  The Sabre is a fine shaver, somewhere in the upper wrung of mild shavers, I would say. It is in perfect shape. My BBS-1 and Timeless razors have supplanted my other razors. New, the Sabre lists for $185. Your price of $165 includes about 145 GEM blades.  PENDING

2.  The Thater is a two-band brush with medium backbone, medium density, and a wee bit of scritch in the tips. It lathers beautifully. Interestingly enough, the 29mm knot set to, I believe, a 57mm loft is ideal for both face and bowl lathering. It is also far from overwhelming, if you're accustomed to small brushes. It's a lovely brush, but my skin cannot tolerate even the smallest bit of "scritch." New, the brush lists at $154. Your price is $115  $95.  $75

I have gone through the entire Simpson super badger series — don't like the best badger knot. Scores of Thater finest silvertip brushes, and silvertip and silvertip two-band shavemac, many silvertip Vulfix, and so on. I have reduced my lineup to a simple: Vulfix 377 silvertip; Thater 25mm two-band finest silvertip; Thater 26mm two-band finest silvertip; Semogue 22mm silvertip; and Wiborg 26mm two-band white badger. All have silky soft tips. My prize is the Wiborg.
