    Another Unknown British Aristocrat

    That was my thoughts, someone custom made the lower portion of the case. Still unique and one of a kind I'm sure.

    Rubie Or Not Rubie!

    One last question for you as I assume you've also tried the London Bridge blades. What are your opinion on those, as good, better, less good? compared to the Rubie in terms of smoothness and sharpness. Thanks.

    Rubie Or Not Rubie!

    Could we get some photos? A few of us are interested in them but would like to know what to look for in true genuine Gillette blades vs fakes.

    Gillette Rubie Ultra Stainless

    Well that sucks. We would need a huge bulk order to offset the cost of shipping. For a business like Maggards or Razor Blade club it could work though as they deal in higher volumes.

    Rubie Or Not Rubie!

    They are made in China so it could be possible a batch that never got ground or honed, slipped past quality control. If you had to choose which is better: Rubie or London Bridge? Also do you have photos of the dud blade?

    Winner blades by Gillette India

    I emailed them, lets see if I have any better luck. Not too long ago I even created an account on a site in Indonesia & using google translate to communicate with various sellers hoping one might ship international but they all said no.

I had a fellow member from there who was going to look into cost via the regular post sending a few packs of each in envelopes over a month ago but never got a reply.

    Vintage Osco Double Edge Blades

    I have been using various modern blades from a sample pack for the past month or so with mostly sub-par performance. My joy of shaving had been diminished somewhat so tonight I cracked open a pack of Osco blades that I bought from a member here on the BST a few months back. They are private...
