Evening all,

Found a couple new things I'd like to add to my collection so I figured what the heck, I'll try to sell some things off.

First and foremost, prices include shipping via USPS First Class Mail in the Continental US. Outside of that, shipping beyond what I cover is on you.

I'm in no major rush to sell, as the Merkur and Simpson are parts of my collections that I love. I'm open to offers if you don't insult me.

***SOLD*** Item 1: New old stock, Unused Merkur slant. Complete with shipping box, bakelite case, blade, etc... This is a beautiful part of my collection. Picked it up and just saved it. Never wanted to use it since I have a few Vintage Hoffritz Slants. It's BEAUTIFUL and frankly, I don't really know what it's worth. I'm going to throw a price out there, and feel free to make an offer. If it's fair, don't ream me too hard!

The only negative to this item is, as seen in the pictures, a small crack has begun to form. It's is NOT a split, it's stable, you can do whatever you'd like with this razor. Display it or use it. It's 100% stable and rock solid. Outside of that, the item and case are perfect.

Asking price: $105 shipped. ***SOLD***

***SOLD*** Item 2: Simpson Keyhole 2 in 2-band super. This brush is special to me, but now that I've found a few other short brushes being used more, figured I'd give someone else a chance at it. The knot comes in at approximately 20.6mm in size by about 49mm in loft. It's an awesome face lathering brush that I've also managed to bowl lather VERY successfully with.

This brush has been used only a handful of times and could still use a bit of breaking in, BUT even with it's nice bulb shape, is a reasonably soft 2 band. The real beauty is the handle. The keyholes are definitely a ymmv and are not often seen with super knots, let alone 2-band. It's sort of an oddity but in my opinion is beautiful. I think this brush will make someone very happy. Simpson box IS included.

Asking Price: $125 ***SOLD***

***SOLD*** Item 3: A Simpson Emperor 3 in 3-band Super. Luxuriously soft and a beautiful brush. A must in everyones collection. I'll be replacing it with a 2 band version. Wink

This brush has been used 4 times. Includes the box. With MAP going on and what not, prices are going up. My asking price is lower than even what you could source them at prior to the pricing change. I believe a good value for such little use.

Asking Price: $125 ***SOLD***

Item 4: Semogue 1305. This was my first boar brush, but I'm addicted to 2-band brushes now. This has been used maybe 5-6 times, most of that just test lathering. It's just starting to get broken in with some nice soft split tips. It should make someone very happy!

Asking price: $17

Payment via paypal preferred for all you see. No trades at this time.

If you're interested in multiple items I will see if I can work a little price break.

Thanks in advance for taking the time to check these items out!

Lee speaks the truth! Everything is still available. Might list a little more too if I can bring myself to do it.

Keyhole is sold pending funds.

Other items are still available. I've adjusted some of the prices as I'd like to clear them out. If I can't sell them in a few days, I'll throw them up on Ebay and just roll the dice!

Thanks to all who have sent PM's with interest in th items!

Will the Merkur Slant take modern handles (i.e. a bulldog)?

Hi Wing,

I apologize for not replying sooner. Didn't see the message.

The Slant does not have a threaded head. I believe what you're after is the Hoffritz Slant in travel form, as it's got a threaded 2 piece handle.

BTW the remaining items still have not sold. They'll be going up on ebay at some point today if nobody is interested in making offers! I'd much rather sell them on here to members of the community so prices have been dropped a bit more.

No, sir. Unfortunately it has been sold. Sad

But be on the look out. Some time today or tomorrow I think I'll be thinning my brush herd a bit and listing a bunch of high quality brushes. (Simpson, M&F, Thater, etc..)
