EDIT//: This case is now available for purchase!

For one of my oldest friends’ 30th birthday – a true milestone – his fiance bought him a restored straight razor from 1903, along with a badger brush and stand. She asked me to make a toiletry bag that would suit the new set since he’s a musician who’s always on the road (wearing our guitar strap!).

Drawing on my experience coming up with the wet-shaving kit last year, I knew that it would need to have a place to hold the soap, brush, and razor in one place so that they don’t get knocked about, also allowing the brush to dry. Since he already was using a ‘military wet pack’-style toiletry bag, I wanted to re-create the same style, but focusing on fixing the design flaws he found in his existing case. What resulted is this hybrid – it’s an amalgamation of all the best parts of the vintage shaving cases from the 50’s, a military wet pack, and a traditional DOPP kit. → Read more
