That better not be the one you're making for me, you prick. No wonder it takes so long! It's been three years and not a word from you. (All untrue, nice work, pal, Denny)


Dennis,
This was yours and it still can be, if your bid is high enough :rolleyes:

You really are a prick!!! Prepayment sent eons ago and I have to repurchase my own gear. Anything for the cause, I guess. I hope your address is around here somewhere in the members section. Later, pal, Denny

Hey guys, I've got my package done up and ready to go, but I don't know where to send it. I'm getting a little anxious because it'll need to cross at least two borders and time will be running short.
If I don't hear today, I'll just fire it off to Ralfy, i guess.

I'm wondering, why all the trouble of sending it ? :confused:
Why not put them for sale up on ebay and let everyone know the object number ?
Then it will only have to be sent once: to the winner.

Yes, I considered that, but there are a few downsides. Firstly, we wouldn't group certain items, e.g. "straight razor shaving kit", with a decent brush, pro-honed razor, and refurbished strop. Secondly, we would not be able to assess the items we sell. Take for instance that gorgeous - what is it 9/8 or 10/8?- razor you came hiding in my letterbox yesterday. It's a unique piece that I expect to fetch a very good price. But I will first hold it against that jewelers lathe for a while. I you can shoot perfectly focused close-up shots of a razor, it will attract much more attention on Ebay. That requires the equipment to make such photos and the tools for cleaning up the blade.
And finally, we can't know up front who will donate something. I was not prepared to use my Ebay account for items that Ray, Ralfson or myself have never seen. What if the buyer complains that the description doesn't confirm with the item he received. These things happen, and we don't want to be second guessing what went on. Please do not read that as a matter of distrust, but we don't want to merely "sell some stuff". Also the buyers must be exceedingly happy with their purchase.

Pictures of the items I have for sale follow soon. With the current lack of daylight, I need to find a lamp somewhere to lighten the scene.

Kind regards,
Bart.

Hi Bart, Ralphy,

I am finishing up these two strops today. It may be quicker to send them to England than Belgium, I don't know. What do you think?

And a shipping address? Thanks!

regards,
Torolf

Let's put them in England. That's as "in the middle" between US and EU we can put them, which promotes a possible sale at both continents. I'm sure Ralfson will drop you a line with his address shortly.

Thanks heaps, Torolf, and everyone else who has donated something thus far.

Bart.

Ok Bart, sounds good.
But I have to run out the door now and will be away for the weekend. I am afraid I will have to post them on Monday:(

Here is a picture of what I'm sending:
Two oil tanned and natural linen strops with vintage handles, 50 mm wide, 60 cm long. They are brown, the color is a little off in the photo. I used red to make them a little flash for the auctions. The leather is 2 mm and supple enough to roll up without damage. The draw is excellent, very like the Old Traditional.




regards,
Torolf

I want one of those strops! :thumbup:
I'll see if I can get something shipped off to Ralfy tomorrow morning. Not sure what yet, but every little helps.
