I just got an order from them and I was able to buy a lot of different Arko varieties I hadn't tried previously. I didn't know about the a/s splashes or I may have tried them. I think their prices on Alum block is really good, too. I bought 4 of them in this last order (first time trying this brand ...

I wonder if he has any Personna 74s.
I've always wanted to try them!

:wink:

Now, I have never seen a blade go for a higher price than a Personna 74!
I've seen those go for $4 a blade.

I thought Iridiums were coming back into production... If so, I think this will pass and someone who buys these will be kicking themselves at that price... or they will be justifying the price and say these are prior to the restart of production and the next generation are post-production. Did I mis...

Someone selling Gillette Twinjector on another forum.

Not sure if it is in good taste or not to mention another site, but I see so many duplicate members, I will attribute it to just trying to help out and won't post the link. Dougr is offering a Gillette Twinjector over at B&B in the Buy/Sell/trade forum. He has some pics up of it in its case similar ...

SS suffers from a flawed structure and expections of it's purpose: but not from deliberate fraud. I will agree with this; however, I also need to wonder if it would be as bad as it is today if it was administered better and it wasn't dipped into for needs by general government funding shortfalls......

Medical Prep Personna and Super Personna

The ones that are known as the Personna Medical Prep blades say For Hospital Use - Made In The USA right on the blade. The Ones that say SUPER also say Made In The USA right on the blade. These both seem to use the same packaging as well... Blue wrapper. I like both of these and they cost a little m...

I tried a Gillette Thin a couple months ago and after a few strokes, I gave up before choppiing anything off my face I may need. LOL.

WOW!

Fantastic collection!

Your photos can be used as a reference for razor identification which I know will be helpful, especially for seeing how incorrectly razors are being described on eBay :)

I just got my first Merkur last week... The Progress. As far as Gillettes, I have a Slim Adjustable, Blue Tip, some Super Speeds, and some Fat Handled Techs. I enjoy the variety as well as the different challenges and benefits from each. I can only imagine our forebearers who may have been only able...

I have a gunmetal Weishi and works pretty good. :) I agree that it is a less aggressive razor, but I will still tend to use it when I find a blade feels too agressive in the Gillette Slim Adjutable, Progress, Flare Tip SS, Blue Tip, or Parker and want to still give it a full try out. Sometimes, a bl...
