A Pictorial Tour Of My Shave Den

These are pictures of the various pieces of gear that I currently own.  A few things have been left out, either because they have been leant out or because I forgot about them until after I took the pictures and did not feel like taking more.  There are many things that I have owned in the past, but no longer have and a few things which either broke or were lost, but this is a pretty accurate representation of what I think of as my good gear.  Enjoy the show.
