    Finally acquired my 1st Darwin Deluxe -- what a beautiful & hefty razor. The case is a little funky but the razor cleaned up great. Wonder why they stopped making these deco designed razors. But glad they made some so we can own, display, shave with them. Great shavers they are too.

    What a classy design for this razor.

    And just to show the Deluxe is pretty much a standard size DE razor -- as opposed to the several other smaller versions of the Darwin -- I compare it to the British made Rocket HD.

  8. Man that is absolutely gorgeous.
     
  9. Agreed always on the look for a deal on a darwin, yeah right few hundred bucks would be a deal... I was wondering the same thing how does its shave? Any reference?

  10. That looks sweet! It looks heavy, should just float through a shave.

    Thanks Gents. Will try a few more shaves before offering comparisons, but initially it seems to be in a class all its own.
     
  12. That is not only gorgeous, but the head design makes me think that it could be the grandfather of the R41. Love it!!!

    Jake, is that class mild, aggressive, or lil of both?
     
  14. Jake, that is simply unbelievable! Great photos too.

    I shouldn't have one of these. I can see me turning into an emaciated, creepy figure saying over and over "my precious, my precious..."
     
  15. R41 inspired by Darwin?
    Gorgeous razors.
     
  16. x2. looks very unique

    Not too aggressive & not very mild. No chance for nicks & very effective. I'll have some comparisons later.
     
  18. I want one :crying::crying::crying:

    But you've got a great collection even without a Darwin. And so many rare birds among them.
     
  20. Very nice Jake!
