WTB: 1940's Super Speed

... doesn't have to be mint, but I would like it to be in good condition. I thought I was pretty much settled on my Tech, but decided I need to give one of these a try.

I have a number of DEs I could offer for trade, or I could pay $$.

I've got to give this razor another try. It didn't work great for me the first time around, but close to 3 years later, I've got to revisit it.

Anyhoo... PM sent

Well... I guess I've answered my own question to the thread topic... After several shaves with the Slant, I just don't care for it much. I got fine shaves, with a few nicks my first shave, and none there-after. But it wasn't as comfortable as my superspeed or Tech. Fine razor, just not something my ...

First shave with the slant (and a fresh Derby)...couple of nicks on my neck... but I see the potential of this razor. I'll use it a little longer to see if I get the hang of it. I kind of shaved at my usual speed, instead of slowing down a bit... I will know better for next time. I did feel a differ...

I have received my mint gold slant, and will give it a try for the first time over the weekend. I will report my experience after a couple of shaves (I kind of feel like I'm cheating on my redtip SS... she ain't been nuthin' but good to me :oops: )

Does anyone NOT like the Slant Bar?

... and if so, why? I am sure it has its naysayers... but I haven't found many. I have been happy with my '57 redtip superspeed, but am intrigued by the slant, which kind of sucks, because I liked having just one razor, and now I'm getting sucked back in I have a pretty thick beard, and a lot of mil...

AOS is great stuff. Their lavender cream is awesome, as is their sandalwood soap. It's a misnomer, because compared to Taylors, just about everything is expensive (save Proraso). AOS is $22 a tub, if memory serves. That's right on par, on a per oz. basis, with most other high quality creams. The pri...

Oh, The Burn!

I really like alcohol based aftershaves, but some certainly have more sting than others. I have less than 10 in my rotation, so hardly the inventory that many have, but here is my ranking based solely on "the burn factor" of the aftershaves I HAVE USED: 10 being the most severe burn, 0 being no burn...

I used the Taylors no. 74 lime aftershave today for the first time, and it smells great. To me, it dries down into a citrusy powdery type scent, after the initial blast of "in your face" lime wears off upon application. Anyone else get this?
