In celebration of both my new shop, and new, amazing shaving soap, I'm going to hold a tiny giveaway.

The three people who come closest to guessing what my symbol for the shop (or at least knives and wet-shaving gear) is, will get a third of a bar of my soap. It will work out to approximately 50g worth of soap, or the standard size for a travel shaving stick.

Let the games begin!

Here's an aside...
Is anyone good at graphic design? I just got a quote for my symbol and it's way higher than I wanted!
Discounts/trades might be available to anyone who can make my idea happen.
However, my mind is made up on what it is, so the contest continues :)

A shiny badger holding a sharp knife?

Lefty
08-16-2012, 01:52 PM
Eamon and Dan are getting very close!

Twistington
08-16-2012, 01:56 PM
Ok, last guess: A shaved badger with a chef hat proudly posing with a razor... it's got to be that.

Cutty Sharp
08-16-2012, 01:56 PM
Sounds like an animal and razor are involved somehow. Plus I immediately thought of the bald thing: 'Sharp & Shiny' ... and isn't a bald head shiny? So, how about a Canadian squirrel shaving some guy's head?

If not, then maybe this http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71yYRlEz1UL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Or this, especially if you live there http://www.thesharpshop.ca/product_images/logo_sharp_shopupdated.png

Ok I'm gonna go with my gut and say a shaving badger. I thought that first, but can't see why a shaving badger would be on a kitchen knife.

Wait, I CAN guess again, right?

Well done! This is nearly perfect, but where's the squirrel?

I'd say a moose, with his face covered in shaving soap, dicing a mirepoix.

Look at the smile on his face. You know where the squirrel is.

Are you talking about Dr. Phil or "The Shat"?

Lefty

Shatner. Sheesh!

Mr.Magnus

So whos the lucky winners?

DeepCSweede
08-17-2012, 11:20 AM
I would say a badger menacing in the air a razor in one hand and a kitchen knife in the other

or

Badger shaving straight blade with a kitchen knife as a mirror ha

SameGuy

Why does it have to be a badger? Brushes will only be a minor component of a well-rounded shop, IMO.

Lefty
08-17-2012, 01:51 PM
Now we're thinkin'!
I'll give one final hint. There's an animal, but it is one that has no real connection to the site, other than I friggin' love the guy!
