New British Ever-ready, gillette, and razor blade hone!

Instead of posting pictures again, I have added these to the collectors corner. I found all of these this weekend at a flea market. One is a British Eveready that looks like the GEMS reffered to as "G model" which looks the same but has a G where the empty circle is on mine. http://www.shavemyface.c...

HEre are some recent ones..

Haven't seen any others of these...I have seen the similar GEM no-name razor sometimes called "The G" razor (by withthegrain I think). But this is not a GEM branded one. It is a British made Everyready. It is also brand new, never opened! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v208/rnconync/british10.jpg...

Patrick, The best that I've used has been from Bronnley, but it's not that easy to get. The Lavender Hand Cream from C&E seemed quite good, I thought. Regards, Gordon I agree with the Lavender hand cream, they also have a rose that works well too. But I think my favorite from C&E was the sample of ...

haha... Be careful trying to get too close too soon. Irritation may not happen on the first or even second shave, but if you keep trying to get too close day after day it will happen unless you're lucky enought to have skin like leather like I do. The biggest mistake people make when they first swit...

So far from me, another vote for Feather Blades!

Well, I just got my packs of feather blades from Pauldog yesterday and gave one a spin last night! I am very pleased with my first try of them! I will have to keep using them for a while and see if the trend continues. If it does, then I will be moving from Derby's to Feathers! So far I have have go...

I've never had much luck at antique stores. While it is fun to browse at first, it soon becomes frustrating because some collector nut was there at 7am scooping up the razors. A while ago a gent contacted me saying he found a Wilkinson sticky at a yard sale in great condition (in the US), as they a...

Check what I wrote in the last part of this thread and read the wiki links and make your own decision. But from what I gather, the suggestion I have heard some other people say would work just the same and is available for most locally.... And that is picking up a crystal deoderant stick...from what...

Cigar Dan: I saw one of the 45's on ebay about a month ago advertised as a coronation razor. I should have made a better play for it. If I had seen this ad first, I would have. I already have the 58 and the 66, but they are not coronation editions. Check out this thread on B&B if you have not seen i...

Well, I decided what the heck and picked up the alum bar! I got it for $1.50 at one of the local antique shops. Here are a few pictures of it...don't know how old it is...but I decided what the heck and washed it off pretty darn good after taking it out of the sealed box. I then gave it a try after ...
