Hi Shave Nook,

Several months ago I hosted the Cobra Classic Tour in the Safety Razor Forum. The tour came to an end, and for the last couple months the razor has been sitting idle in a drawer and I thought I would see if there was interest in starting another round. Note that this is not a giveaway for the razor, I am simply interested in sharing my backup with members that would like to try one.

The Rules:

1. Must have been a TSN member for 2 months or more AND be an active member of the forum.

2. Please limit your time with the gear to 10 days. This should be enough time for some quality shaves and impressions. Sure, there will be exceptions and if you know ahead of time your schedule will be limited (vacation, job constraints, travel...), let me know so we can adjust the order and keep the momentum going.

3. The package will contain a Cobra Classic, Feather Professional and Kai Mild blades. Each member is invited to use one of each type of blade.

4. I will ship the razor clean and sterilized. Please do the same before handing it off to the next member. Soapy hot water, Barbicide and Scrubby Bubbles are good. Boiling water baths are bad.

5. Wrap carefully and ship the package as your means allow. It will be shipping in a small Priority Mail flat rate box. The razor and blades are valued at approximately $190, so please consider insuring the package.

6. Communicate. Please post in the ORIGINAL tour thread when you receive the razor and when it ships. Please PM me as needed or if you have questions. It is never fun to track you down if you are in possession of some expensive toys.

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

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

Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to participate. Thumbsup

A generous offer indeed!
I encourage those who are curious to try something different to partake.
The Cobra is wonderfully different from all my DE razors.

You can search around as I'm sure there are a few threads on it. For convenience though, here is my thread...

Is it possible to join in on this wonderful opportunity?

I spent a few hours yesterday researching the Cobra as well as reading about it's travels on the other forum. I am contemplating buying one as a 50th birthday present for myself (well, from my wife to me) and would love to test it first.

PM on it's way!!

Ben, weren't you the one who tried the Cobra on its last go-round and bought one after day one? Are you still using it?
