WTB: Unusual Rooney Finests

I would like to buy a couple more Rooney Finest brushes to complete my rotation. I have the regular styles and sizes, so I am looking for the really unusual ones, such as an Alibaba, Victorian, Highlander, or a custom brush. Please PM me if you have one of these rare Finests you'd be willing to sell...

Re: SOLD: Vintage NOS Wilkinson 'Light Brigade' DE Razor Blades

The real problem for me in the past was that sometimes the stuck together blades were also really corroded, some so badly that I had to pitch them out.

I had a lot of fun separating some other English Wilkinsons stuck together with very old oil in a metal "push" dispenser.
Ah, yes. I had that joy a couple times, too, with Personna 74s. I ended up tossing some into the recycling.

I wonder what the difference is between these blades and the other Wilkinsons made in England in the same era. Did they grind them slightly differently? Different coating?
Someone here may know, but I don't. But they certainly are different.

SOLD: Vintage NOS Wilkinson 'Light Brigade' DE Razor Blades

I dislike the term 'unobtainium,' but if anything fits the definition it is these Wilkinson 'Light Brigade' blades, extremely rare and difficult to find and thought by many to be the very finest blades ever produced. For most men they will last 20+ shaves without dulling, and they will provide extra...

WTB: Gillette Swedes

I'd like to buy some of the true Gillette Swedes (Stockholm/Oslo/Dublin/London, etc.). Please PM if you have any to sell. I'm also willing to trade Wilkinson Light Brigades 4:5 for the Swedes.
Thanks.
