FS Big Den Clearing: 18 Razors, 22 Brushes, 21 Sets, 36 Soaps/Creams, Aftershaves, and more

Not open for further replies.
Hello, Gents! I spent the last year buying and trying and have winnowed down a lot of products. It’s now time to move these out of my shave den. These weren’t for me, but might be for you!

For CONUS and APO/FPO/DPO: Orders $50 and above ship free. Orders to $24.99 ship for $6 and orders $25 to $49.99 ship for $9 (exception: if you're buying one item only it will still be $6; sets count as two items). Military addresses, your zip will be checked against the APO/FPO/DPO restrictions list so neither of us gets in trouble with the USPS.

International shipping, please send me a PM, and we can discuss the options. I’m willing to give it a go as long as you pay for the actual cost of shipping and insurance and any other fees.

For payment: PayPal Goods & Services only, please.

I’m mainly downsizing, but would consider a trade for a set of Henri et Victoria Cognac and Cuban Cigars, Southern Witchcrafts Pomona, Noble Otter Orbit, K Shave Worx Frosen, Soap Commander Love, or Phoenix & Beau Spitfire. Also would consider a soap trade for a Mike’s Honeysuckle, Bergamot Orange Ylang-Ylang, or Peppermint & Rosemary.

Note that all measurements are approximate.

Free items are one per $25 spent (or any fraction thereof) and first come, first served.

I plan to post separately within this thread for each category to make it–hopefully–easier to read, Because it appears there’s a limit of ten pictures per post, some categories will spill over into new posts so I can get all the pictures uploaded. Categories will be posted in the following order: Razors, Brushes, Sets, Soaps/Creams, Preshaves/Aftershaves/Balms, Samples, Miscellaneous, and Free. Based on a test run last night/early this morning: with the amount of pictures I have, this is going to take a while, so please be patient if you happen on this thread while I’m in the process of posting everything.

Any questions, feel free to PM me and thanks for looking!

Razors first. All have been cleaned with Scrubbing Bubbles first and then Dawn to finish.

FaTip Lo StortoA bit of "FaTipery" on this one in that the corner on one side of the cap doesn't quite make contact with the baseplate.$10.00
Fine Superlite Slant
Gem Micromatic Open CombUser grade, some plate wear as shown.$8.00
Gillette 1940s Super SpeedUser grade$10.00
Gillette 1947 Aristocrat Jr.User grade$10.00
Gillette Ball-end TechUsed, but very nice condition.$15.00
iKon X3 on iKon bulldog handleHandle alone was $20.$28.00
Karve brass Christopher Bradley, with B, C, and D SB platesDeveloping a nice patina. I wasn't quite able to get the soap scum out of a couple of the corners.$80.00
Maggard Slant on MR5 bamboo handle
Maggard V2 headA clone of the EJ DE89$3.00
Mühle R41 rose gold2013 version of the head; a beautiful razor.$32.00
Mühle R89 GrandeA gorgeous razor, but the DE89/R89 and variations thereof absolutely do not work for me.$20.00
Parker 24C
RazoRock Mamba 70 on titanium handleI ended up preferring (and keeping) the milder OG Mamba, but I still love the titanium handle on this one!$45.00
Schick Injector type E3User grade, some plate wear. Bakelite handle clean with no cracks.$12.00
Standard Razors Deep BlackAn aluminum take on the EJ DE89. One small scratch on the handle, as pictured.$18.00
Wilkinson Sword TTONot a fan, but it's a nicely put together razor with a longer handle.$12.00
Yaqi MellonDouble open comb; used 10x.$13.00

First ten pics of the razors:

Brushes. Reminder: measurements are approximate.

ItemSize in mm: (Knot x Loft x Handle Height x Overall Height)CommentsPrice
AP Shave Co. with Shave Forge boar knot28 x 59 x 48 x 106A big ol' boar!$10.00
AP Shave Co. with Viking Soap synthetic knot26 x 53 x 45 x 95This one is in two pieces because I was orginally going to try resetting the handle with a different knot. I never got around to doing that. Note that the white part of the handle had to be reglued to the red part (it came apart trying to get knot out) and I just ever so slightly misaligned it when setting the glue. You'd have to be really looking for it to notice.$5.00
Century Pure Badger (called pure, but probably best grade)23 x 55 x 55 x 110An interesting brush, US made. One mark on the handle. More info here: https://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/threads/nos-century-7090-us-made-brush.584695/$15.00
Certifyd #2 boar23 x 60 x 71 x 131A cool vintage brush, but the handle is very light and it’ll tip over easily.$12.00
Edwin Jagger Best Badger23 x 54 x 46 x 101A stone-cold classic and my first brush. Used to be the go-to recommendation at B&B.$25.00
Edwin Jagger Super Badger22 x 58 x 50 x 108This one is interesting--the knot size does not indicate how huge this one feels in use.$35.00
Epsilon Limited Edition horse28 x 49 x 48 x 97Want a Chubby in horse? Here's your brush. I really like this one, but, as with the Chubby, it's just too big for my preferences.$18.00
Ever-Ready F40 boar20 x 54 x 53 x 107Just a cool vintage brush. Badger-cased boar. I.e., a thin ring of badger around the boar knot. In use? It's a boar.$15.00
La Maison du Barbier synthetic23 x 55 x 48 x 103Apparently made by Plisson for the French market, with the same Plissoft fibers. A great, comfortable handle, but I prefer natural fibers.$20.00
Omega 81025 boar25 x 57 x 54 x 111A really soft, almost floppy boar. Too much so for my tastes, though I love the handle.$9.00
Parker Pure Badger Travel Brush20 x 53 x 105 x 158Slick design on this one and perfect for home or road$15.00
RazoRock Chrome Silvertip Plissoft24 x 57 x 63 x 120Heavy. Really heavy. And shiny.$10.00
Semogue Owners Club Mistura mixed badger/boar24 x 53 x 59 x 113Butterscotch Taj resin handle$40.00
Semogue Owners Club two-band badger23 x 53 x 59 x 113The SOC handles are really well designed and comfortable to hold.$30.00
Simpson 57 in Best Badger22.4 x 54 x 53 x 105I really like this brush and if I were collecting, I'd absolutely keep it. One small mark on the handle, which I tried to capture in the close-up shot.$67.00
Simpson Berkeley 46 in Best Badger21 x 46.5 x 45 x 91A great, classic Simpson. Perfect for travel.$27.00
Simpson Chubby 2 in Best Badger29 x 53 x 44 x 97The famous "wall of badger" is a great brush, but just too big for me. Note that the original owner didn’t have the Chubby box, so although this will come with a Simpson box, it will be for a Simpson Commodore X2.$80.00
Simpson Duke 3 in Best Badger23 x 52 x 47 x 97This one sheds--big time--and shows no sign of stopping. This is really for someone who (a) wants to get a feel for Simpson on the cheap or (b) wants the handle for a project brush. I used it for the first purpose and it was great for that. Even with the constant shedding this one will be a good, usable brush for a long time.$25.00
Vulfix Grosvenor mixed badger/boar24 x 50 x 53 x 103Another one I like that I'd keep if I were collecting. A really nice example of a mixed bristle brush.$12.00
Yaqi Moka synthetic24 x 52 x 54 x 107
Yaqi Mountain Lake two-band badger24 x 53 x 75 x 128A really nice feeling brush, the knot is too big for my tastes. Love that handle, though.$20.00
Zenith B07/B16 boar23 x 60 x 55 x 115Used only a few times, just wasn't a fan of the handle.$15.00

Captain's Choice Lime
Chatillon Lux ColbeckNo longer made, I believe.$8.00
Chatillon Lux Pre-shave ButterNo longer made. Add a bit of water and rub to warm it up and it soaks right in to your skin. A little goes a long, long way. Very moisturizing, which is not something I need.$10.00
L'Occitane afterhsave balmUsed 5-6 times by me; not sure before. I'm not a fan of balms.$2.00
Proraso White pre-shave balmHeavily used, but plenty left.$2.00
RazoRock King Louis aftershave lotion

RazoRock King Louis aftershave wax
Suavecito aftershave creamA pleasant, clean scent on this one. Similar to a balm.$4.00

Undoubtedly I've got a typo or a missing photo and I'll correct any I see...

Mods, you can tell by the date in the photos that I intended to have this posted yesterday, but it took way longer to get everything together than I anticipated. If I need a new handwritten sign with today's date, please let me know and I'll take a giant group photo.

Thanks for looking, everybody!
