De Vergulde Hand ... Recently passed through Schiphol airport (outside Amsterdam) and saw this stuff at the Etos drugstore in the concourse. Was all set up for my trip but the €7.95 brush that came in ITS OWN CARRYING TUBE with ITS OWN DRYING RACK just called to me. Momentary BAD (brush acquisition ...

I'd suggest a 20 minute soak in a weak solution of CLR (1 CLR : 5 water) and then a quick brush around with a used-up toothbrush. Probably same results as Oxi-Clean. Not sure which is gentler or more caustic to the razor ...

Thanks for the attention to detail and care. I'm also glad to wait for quite some time, and get something great, rather than rush it to completion prematurely.

Got a ball-ended Tech recently off the HeebeejeE-bay and I really like it, too. Not as much "oomph" to the handle -- much thinner, less solid-feeling. But the head is equivalently sleek and agile. Love it too. :)

Sampler pack gone. Thanks to all for trading with me. I've settled for now on the Dorco's because they were readily available via several trades. I'd be excited to find more Israeli Super Platinum Crystal "red pack" blades, too. But I'm likely to simply order them in bulk when the time comes. Best w...

Thanks for the EBay research!

The shipping price puts me off ... more than the cost of the razor! But that's the sort of thing I'll be looking for slowly but surely. Maybe I'll post a wanted-to-buy here if I don't get hold of it there.

Yeah that's the ticket. As I understand it, the 3-piece Techs come with a variety of handles, including the ball-end, the one pictured above, and an intermediate that has a type of knurling that's got a visible larger geometric pattern. Plus the little swoopy-slope things at each end similar to a Tr...

I'm looking for a 3-piece Tech (preferably a non-gold one, too) but I'm not exactly familiar with what is meant by "fat handled". Can I get a pic or a description? I had some pics in a thread recently but golly if I can't find 'em ...

Nice of you to "pay forward" that ball-end non-gold Tech. I love my gold Tech and am looking for a non-gold three-piece Tech to use as a more every-day shaver.

Newbie quasi sampler pack

Available, a quasi-sampler-pack for $2.50 via PayPal. This is a handful of unopened, new double-edge razor blades that are slightly fewer in brand and total number, than a common internet sampler pack which many SMF members recommend. The cartouches (boxie-thingies) have been opened and (except the ...

Thanks for the two who have sent a PM to me so far. I'm comparing and combining and then coagulating the offers and hope nobody will compete. If they do, then first-come-first-served; otherwise, I will know what I've got and will be able to be quite definite about what I can and can't do. I think I'...

Trade: Various blades from Sampler Pack

I've recently worked my way through an experimental testing of a variety of blades from a sample pack . I have some to get rid of and some I'd like to get more of. Here's blades which I have for distribution to others. These are all fresh unused blades, though they come from boxlets which have been ...

Fri AM (April 4) I used (my new favorite) the "red pack" Israeli blade in (what I consider) a gentle Gillette "TV" Super-Speed. I'll do that again for a day or two -- the rash is only barely subsided. Front of chin still feels raw. Did fine in the meeting thanks only to some cover-up make-up. Never ...
