No. 2 Shave Kit – American Made Leather Dopp Kit

Not just for shaving, this toiletry bag will make travel look good no matter what you’re carrying. Our vintage brown polished leather dopp kit is made from American steerhide and complemented by a No. 8 Khaki Cotton Canvas interior which snaps out for cleaning. It’s roomy, convenient, and will upgrade your shaving experience. 

This is not your usual “pop-open” shave kit. The combination of leather and canvas produces a toiletry bag pleasing to the eye and durable enough to withstand the rigors of travel for years. Even when this one is road-tested and battle-scarred, it will still have a look of quality and character.

Handmade in the Col. Littleton Workshop in Lynnville TN, USA with full-grain, double-tanned, polished steerhide. This dopp kit is composed of American leather that’s both vegetable-tanned and hand-tanned to a smooth finish. Over time, this special leather develops its own natural character and patina. 

  • This shaving kit is generously sized at 19″ H x 12.5″ W
  • Adjustable strap closure
  • Convenient strap allows hanging of kit on back of door
  • Removable canvas liner for easier cleaning
  • Solid brass hardware and personalizable front plate
  • Edge-Stitched

  1. This bag is absolutely amazing! The quality is what you’d expect from Colonel Littleton and all of the details are just phenomenal. Once again, a top notch product from THE very best in the business!

  2. I received my shave kit the other day!! I was actually surprised how fast I got it. This piece of true craftsmanship is absolutely amazing!! The leather is perfectly soft and super sturdy! I can see this piece lasting my lifetime. The moon pie was a wonderful surprise as well. It brought back a crazy memory from when I was in the Marine Corps. My unit had been on a crazy ruck march in the mountains of South Korea up along the DMZ. We had been walking for days for what seemed uphill all the way. We were all totally exhausted. We got to the top of this particular mountain in the middle of nowhere and what did we find?!? A little kid on a bike selling moonpies and coke!!! It was a crazy miracle sent by the hand of God himself I was sure of it!! So, thanks for the moonpie and the memories!!! God bless you!!

  3. Even nicer in the flesh! Going to the desert in a couple weeks to see the wildflowers! Borrego. Got it stuffed with stuff! Holds a bunch! Great design!

  4. I can only say the quality is excellent and plenty of space. The pockets are large and hold my shaving bowl perfectly. The canvas and snaps are of the highest quality, I am not disappointed and wished I would have got one sooner.

  5. Bought this kit through a different retailer and it arrived with a minor flaw (hardware does break, no matter how hard anybody tries).
    Reached out to Col. Littleton Customer Service direct to understand a better way to deal with this issue and was truly impressed with the grace and friendliness of their approach — the representative offered me a replacement kit immediately to be sent to my address with a return shipping label for the one that didn’t work out.
    It arrived within days to make it to my next trip.
    And the piece itself is truly beautiful.
    Really appreciate this level of craftsmanship and service — something for all of us to learn from.

  6. I travel a great deal and I have purchased and used many Dopp kits. And I never really liked any of them. When I say the No. 2 Dopp kit I loved the look and the size and decided to take the plunge (it is not cheap). Having used it now for several trips, I can say it is worth every penny. The leather is thick and luxurious and the canvas insert is very solid. The whole item reeks of quality. And the size is great. It is not small, but it is not too big either. After decades of travel I have finally found a Dopp kit I really like to use!


  7. My son was given this Dopp kit by a dear family friend in 2008 when he graduated from UCLA. It has served him well over the course of this last decade because he is a well-traveled women’s volleyball coach. My grandson has just turned 18, and has been accepted to UC Berkeley. His mother and I could think of no better gift than the Colonel Littleton Dopp kit for a high school graduation present. You folks do some high quality work – may all of you enjoy continued success!!

  8. I’ve had my eye on this shave kit for about a year. I finally got it last week. It’s incredible. Obviously extremely high quality and worth every penny. I believe it will last me literally for the rest of my life.


  9. This is one of a growing number of the Colonel’s creations that I own and get to enjoy often. Extremely well made. If you can be content to throw your toiletries in a plastic bag when you travel, this kit may not be for you. If you enjoy well made, classy items that make you smile each time you use them – buy the No.2 shave kit. You won’t regret it!


  10. Have to admit, been checking out the Colonel’s stuff for some time, finally pulled the trigger and got me the No. 2 Shave kit. Was a little concerned that $300 is a lot and granted, it’s not cheap, but where I am, having it is the way to go. Right now, I’m writing this in Paris and knowing that my shaving and general kit is organized and well-managed is a good thing to know! I’ve come to appreciate having a kit that I can hang on the wall or door and take out what I need when I need it (and not take everything in and out constantly!)not to mention roll it up for the next stop – and have it protected and looking good! They may not be for everybody, but once you’ve tried the Colonel’s products, you’ll not go back and find yourself wondering why you didn’t get any sooner! Buy American and take home some of that good old fashioned quality heritage as you travel into the 21st century!

  11. As all the Colonel’s pieces this one is perfect. I use it regularly and have found it is very compact but holds a ton and keeps it separate.

  12. I have owned this amazing Dopp kit for about 13 years now. I use it not only when traveling, but every single day. It’s so ruggedly handsome and organized that it hangs from its own brass hook on my bathroom wall and keeps my toiletries neat and accessible. When I do travel, this thing gets a ton of attention. The high quality construction from bridle leather ensures that it will last for generations and lucky for my son, we share the same initials, so one day this kit will be his….but of course he is going to have to wait on me to kick the bucket first because I’m not giving this up any time soon.


  13. I have been traveling for business for over thirty years and have used about every piece of luggage and gear imaginable but once I found the Colonel’s products there’s no turning back. It’s a little pricey but you get what you pay for and this is the best you will ever find. I own many Colonel products and love them all.

  14. I just received this kit for Christmas, and absolutely love this product. It fits everything I need in a dopp kit, and just checks off every box in quality, style, and details. Like all of Colonel’s products and gear.


  15. 11/1/17: I recently purchased this product for my dear boss who loves to travel and is retiring the SECOND time; I could think of NO vendor more special with the quality of his products that the Colonel.
    I have purchased over products with the SAME quality, can relax when you make a purchase, that it will last and your love for the product will last also.

  16. Just purchased the #2 shave kit. Very well made. Nice leather. Looks great.
    I am extremely happy with this product. Very well designed.
    I purchased it thru Orvis. I had previously purchased products from you and thru the Orvis purchase, I have found you again.
    It is just like all of your other products I have Purchased, Wonderful.
    Love your products.
    When a need arises I will be back.
    A long time very satisfied Customer, Thank you,

  17. My son bought me this shaving kit because of how much I love my no.1 grip bag. I can not fully express how impressed I am with your products. This kit has enough room to fit everything you need and even things you don’t. The canvass storage is easily cleanable and the leather wrap is so thick and durable you would be hard pressed to wear it out. The craftsmen at Colonel Littleton do go above and beyond both in design and construction and I feel quite privileged to own some of their pieces. Keep up the great work and know you have a customer for life!


  18. Bought this a few years ago… it has held up very well and has aged just as well. It is DARN tough!! The only issue I have had with it is the little leather hanging strap fell off but was an easy home fix! LOVE IT!

  19. I bought a branded version of this Dopp kit and I could not be happier with the purchase! The brand happened to be the initial of my last name and the various pockets and storage locations in the kit make it super easy to put everything inside. The zipper has a pull on both sides and seems adequate to me quality wise unless you are using it daily and it will get dirt and other miscellaneous stuff in it. The snaps are a little difficult to snap and unsnap brand new but they will loosen nicely with use so I am unconcerned.

    This is an excellent product.


  20. This is, without doubt, the finest shave kit I’ve ever seen. The leather is very substantial, almost holster weight, with a rich satin russet finish accented with brass of good weight and heft.
    The canvas interior has the look and feel of a century ago, and all that that implies.
    Unless some misfortune occurs, this is the last shave kit I ever hope to own.

    But here’s the kicker. I bought this on the secondary market; that is, I didn’t buy it direct from the Colonel but on an auction site. I called Col. Littleton and asked them to change out the personalized nameplate for one with my initials, and for a nominal fee, they did just that and shipped it back to me.
    Upon receipt, I was very surprised to see that they polished the brass and detailed it very nicely, without my asking them to, and apparently: just because.
    That impressed me a great deal; not too many other outfits I know of would take the time or incur the trouble for a secondary buyer.

    I will be back.



  21. Overdue review, but just wanted to say it is a perfect case. Fits enough for a week on the road for my business trips. I make it a point to always bring it in my carry on now so it never leaves my side!


  22. I’ve had several smaller bags, my Father called them “ditty” bags,their small one compartment what ever you want is always on the bottom. This bag is great. separate compartments and the loop to hang it on the back of the door fantastic idea. love this shave kit

    wilsonclan4 (verified owner)

  23. I purchased this shave kit as I have wanted one for quite a while. I received this in Buffalo after talking to Charlene on the phone and via emails. I have owned many leather Dopp Kitts in the past as well as one from Bass Pro and this is the best Shave Kit on the planet!

    I recommend the Colonel to all my friends that want exceptional quality and personal service. I also purchase items from the Colonel to give as gifts to my close friends each Christmas.

    Thanks Colonel and your 5 Star staff!


  24. I bought this because it reminded me of my dad. Not because he had a shaving kit like this, and as a matter of fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a kit quite like this. One of a kind, if you ask me, right down to the last stitch. Same as my dad. He was always so hard to shop for because when he saw something he liked or needed, he got it, which left us pulling at straws come his birthday or Father’s Day. Something like this is worth every penny, maybe even a couple more. There was no need to wait. I’ll use it for many years, there’s no doubt in my mind. Col Littleton has found himself a new customer and another advocate. Next promotion, I’ve got my eye on that 1943 navigators bag, and I’m sure I’ll find the exact same quality, down to the last stitch. Thank you.


  25. Beautiful
    This piece is just beautiful. I couldn’t be more happy with the look and function of this shave kit. Truly first class in every way. The leather is just beautiful and it is so different than anything else you can find. I would definitely buy it again. So why only 4 stars??? I have to agree with No Nickname above. When you spend a lot of money for something like this, you are looking for a timeless look. Something that doesn’t date the piece. I have to admit, I really (really) don’t like the “.com” tag that is sewn on the inside. It is just a little bit of an eyesore as far as I’m concerned. Like No Nickname said above, we already know where to find the Colonel when we would like to place an order. It is perfect in every way in form and function. It is a small nitpick but something that needs to be considered when purchasing an item such as this.


  26. Finest Dopp Kit on the Market.
    I travel weekly and this kit provides me the opportunity to bring everything needed. The additional brass snap that Col. Littleton added to the product is perfect.


  27. What a gift !
    I received the #2 shave kit from my lovely wife as a retirement gift. The very first trip that I took my carry on was pulled because I had an old school razor in the bag. The TSA agent was an older gentleman and had me pull the bag from my carry on. It was a small airport and not very crowded. I had a fellow passenger follow me and ask where I had found such a cool bag. I was proud to say that it was one of the many items that I had purchased from ‘The Colonel”


  28. Very nice
    This is a beautiful product. However, I almost didn’t buy it do to the reviews mentioning the cheap zipper. I agree that the zipper should be brass or some kind of metal. The nylon type zipper isn’t the same quality as the rest of the bag. I’m afraid that if will not hold up so I sent two e-mails to the customer service department asking about the warranty. I got one response only mentioning the return policy (30 days). I read online and in the product literature about the guarantee, but it doesn’t mention a timeframe and it’s rather vague. But primarily due to the zipper, I held off on an excellent rating.


  29. Finally a shaving kit that is everything I need…
    Just received my No. 2 Shave Kit – Leather today and I had to post a quick review. In just one word, PERFECT!

    I was concerned that it wasn’t going to be big enough for all of my shaving gear, but I shouldn’t have worried. This kit is, well, big. But for a wet shaver like myself, who also wears contacts it holds:

    Straight razor
    Shaving soap
    Shaving brush
    Tooth brush
    Tooth paste
    Contact case
    Contact soultion (a large bottle)
    Nail clippers
    And some other small items

    If you are looking for a small bag that will hold only the bare essentials, you don’t have to get this bag (but you can anyways because it is wonderful). If you have a ton of stuff like I do, you can’t go


  30. Awesome
    Love the quality of the leather, the brass snaps, the canvas pockets, the brass buckles and the straps.

    The zippers should be brass retro military zippers, the kind with a brass handle and teeth. The zipper handles, while brass colored, look mid-quality to me and not the exceptional quality of the rest of the unit.

    The top of the canvas flops in the middle when hung up – needs two extra brass snaps.

    But an exceptional piece, just like the Colonel. 99% there, let’s make it perfect.


  31. In general, a beautiful piece!
    I’ve oiled mine and it darkened up beautifully. Some people may prefer to watch their leather age naturally, but I intend to hand mine down a generation or two and like to know that the leather is protected. Wonderful leather, by the way; it takes oil well and softens remarkably well.

    I removed the hanging loop because I thought the stitching looked out of place when compared to the no-stitching kit–easy. I don’t like the nylon trim, as it won’t “age” like the rest of this kit. I also don’t like the inside tag with the website on it–I removed it, as I see so many “.coms” throughout the day that I don’t want to see more. I know how to find Col Littleton when I’m ready to place an order.

    I don’t like the nylon zipper either, though it is smooth and obviously good quality. This, along with the “.com” tag and nylon edging, “date” this piece in a way that I try to avoid.

    I would also suggest that there should be a “hidden” pocket that is accessed only by unsnapping the cover from the kit itself–it could “fit” within the size of the main, middle pouch, so you wouldn’t be able to see the stitching from the front. I like this idea because when I stay in a motel I am not worried about room service/maintenance folks steeling the shave kit, that would be too obvious, but I do concern myself with where to keep checkbooks and other important paperwork when out of my room…in the event no safe is provided. Putting a hidden pocket in this thing would CERTAINLY be hiding things in plain sight–nobody is going to look through a shave kit for useful personal information.

    In general, however, this is a wonderful kit! I love mine, and will have it for many, many years to come. I use it at least once a month, very happily, and would buy another in a heartbeat if this one suffered an ill fate. Being handy with sewing, I’ve often entertained the idea of re-constructing the canvas portion to omit the things I don’t like (and add the hidden pocket); even if I don’t, this is still a great kit and, in my opinion, well worth the money.

    Oh, last thing: maybe one more button-snap right above the engrave-able brass? Mine sometimes flops open when hung…no big deal.

    Thanks Colonel and friends! I’m pleased to be a loyal customer!

Our Story

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
