Old Type

I've been bidding on these for awhile. I won an auction tonight for this 1918 Khaki Old Type.

I'm hoping its a good shaver.

CLAIMED: Pecksniff's Oriental Woody EDT 100ml Spray

Used once. ( Scott, I edited this post as per our guidelines a price must be named....we do not permit 'auctions' )

It smells like crème brûlée with the torch held on it for 20 minutes instead of 20 seconds.

Scott

P.S. The item has been claimed. Thanks and sorry to break the rules.

If you want to go big though, try and win some Personna 74 tungsten injector blades off of eBay. They will probably cost you $2.00 to $8.00 a blade but they last 15 to 20 shaves a piece. Recently I've gotten together a lifetime supply of vintage NOS SPP, GPP and P74 DE blades and also quite a few S...

Schick Injector Blades made in Germany?

I bought a supply of injector blades for my 1970 L1 Heavyhead about 5 years ago. Mine say: "Made in Germany for Energizer Holdings, Inc. St. Louis, MO 66144" They're in 7-blade dispensers. Does anyone else own these? How do they compare to the blades made in China that are currently available? I hav...

Re: Feather SS 1-year abuse report

I picked up a Feather SS last August, almost a year ago, I've used it exclusively since then, ~5-6 shaves per week. I have hard water and always have problems with soap scum, so much so that I've given up the fight, I just let my razors get dirty and use them, guess I get used to it. I hadn't clean...
