I suggest watching Mantics video on the proper way to make lather. I too used to have problems making lather but watching the video and seeing what proper lather looks like really helped. I can whip up a rich creamy lather in no time now. Mantics videos are on youtube. Search for username: Mantic. H...

Yes, I do believe the parat is the german equivalant of the english made rocket.

Yeah, I'd like to get into SE but I'm having too much fun with DE right now. :D Besides, my girlfriend will kill me if I bought another razor, although she has quite the shoe fetish, but what women hasn't. :D

Thanks everyone for your comments. Yeah, I guess I got hit with RAD pretty bad, but I like variety. I'd have to say my favorite to shave with is the '52 ss. I've only had it about 3 weeks but I've been getting consistent BBS shaves with it.

WTB: ss redtip CASE

Trying to acquire the '55 superspeed collection. So far I've got the bluetip w/case and the standard w/case, both in pristine condition. I also have a pristine redtip but alas, no case. Anyone out there willing to part with their redtip case?? Good to excellent condition prefered.

Thanks,
Anthony
