    Anyone have any recent experience with bmvintageshaving.com? I could not find any recent post on this company. The only reason I ask is because they seem to have a supply of NOS Merkur Vision 2000, which I thought were long gone. Any info on them would be appreciated.

    Gillette Sensor compatible cartridges

    I just received a PIF of a Sensor Excel razor. What I had in mind for this razor was to be a finisher razor and travel razor.

    Vikings Blade Emperor Augustus
