I'm hoping that there's someone out there that is willing to part with some Merkur platinums. I'm interested in whatever quantity you have within reason. I like this blade.
Thanks for looking.
My favorite blade is getting confusing for sure. All of my platinums have been the version seen on the right in my photo with ink. If Gillette definitely laser etched blades then I feel better about it. I usually purchase from blade dealers on this site instead of a large online place like...
Original is pretty good.. i like to mix slightly with water in my palm. Smells like baby wipes to some people, but really is a sporting scent to me.
I'd also go for the BayRum. It's awesome IMO. I cut that too. Smells like atomic fireballs basically.
The whole project is either making your own handle or trying to figure out how to get the old knot out of the vintage(or not) handle without destroying the handle. Really not as interesting as I had hoped. Maybe I need to make a handle.
My lineup will always have the Merkur blade in it for use in my Flare Tip. I love trading for Merkurs.. and I have many high quality blades in my lineup. ... "no nicks and no weepers" says it all... These are from Solingen Germany for crying out loud.
