I had a box show up in the mail the other day,
It was from a shaving friend no less. A little back story is in order. I have a friend, lets just call him DLB, that I have met in my shaving adventures in a forum. Since our first meeting we have stayed in touch and kept tabs on each others shaving adventures. One day he emailed me saying he had a couple spare razors, aftershave and shave oil. He wanted to know if I would like to have them, I think I nearly broke my fingers trying to type so fast, YES! I was so excited, my first person, a friend thru shaving no less, to send me some gear to try out. With much gratitude I emailed back saying I would love to try out what every he had to send my way.
A couple of days ago the packaged had arrived. He had told me before what he was sending me, I was still surprised to what was in the box. He shoved a lot in there for being so small a parcel. It was like the never-ending trick you see on tv, it just kept coming out of the box. After unpacking it all I was even more grateful. So much to try out, and smelled good as well. The bottles leaked out a tiny bit.
With out further delay, this is what was included. Two bakelite Gillette razors, some Preferred Stock Cologne and after shave, and two bottles of King of Shaves Shaving oil. I havent used any of it yet, but am excited to do so. The razors look awesome in particular. DLB told me that they were from 1951 and 1938-1945. One of the two was a military issue razor no less. So cool to take part not only in a great shave, but history as well. Thanks again DLB, it is much appreciated.
Here is the pictures of what he sent me:
First the razors the copper one is the one from 1951, the silver one is the one from 1938-1945 and is a military issue one.
Here is the oil and cologne.
I cant wait to put it all to good use. Cheers!
