I've collected razors and shaving stuff on and off for many years, but mostly for the past 3 years.
The first things that caught my eye were Gillette British Aristocrats. Still love them.
I have every year fatboy in its proper case. And the toggle version.
Lately I've enjoyed bell tube handle...
I've had very good luck shipping and receiving items from around the world. I was wondering if anyone knows if international shipping has been delayed or stopped. I just purchased 2 razors from Australia and was wondering what to expect. I'm located in Phoenix, Arizona in the USA
I have several Gillette super speeds along with their respective plastic cases. Recently I was looking at the "Mr Razor" site and noticed that the Milord looks like the super speeds, except that the Milord had a proper, fancier case.
Is this an example of the same razor being used for different...
I have a rockwell 6S which I love. The finish is sort of a matt grey or silver-ish. And the box that it came in is fairly large.
I saw a 6S for sale which looks to be a stainless steel finish and in a much smaller box.
Does the 6S come in different finishes?
I purchased this Rex ambassador about a week ago from a respected member of B&B. I decided that its too agressive for me, so I decided to sell it. I paid $195 for it and that is what I'm asking. It comes with the original box and is in new condition. I will pay for shipping to the CONUS
I've accumulated about a dozen badger brushes. Mostly finest badger. They are mostly about 24mm x 50mm or so in size.
Recently I've purchesed a 28mm and 30mm badger brushes. At first I was concerned that they looked so much bigger than my other brushes, but I'm finding that I like that big hunk...
I've been trying different razors to find the ones that work for me and the ones that don't.
I really like my old gillettes (and collect them), like the flair tip and flair tip with a red knob, the aristocrats, fat boy and slim adj
I recently bought a Rockwell 6S and love it. Right now its my...
I'm selling my blackland blackbird in excellent condition along with its box and blades. $160 shipped to CONUS
Also selling my Gillette old type along with its case. The spring on the box door does not keep the case closed completely. $50 shipped to CONUS
I was looking at a DE razor that has been replated with platinum. Does anyone know if one vendor is better than any others when it comes to replating? The work was done by Backroads Gold.
I saw that Razor Emporium says that their plating is thicker than their competitors, but what do I know?
I have a few older badger brushes that develope beautiful creamy peaks during lathering and I love that, except they don't have much, or any backbone. Two that I recently used are a Simpson super badger and a Simpsons manchurian
Recently I've developed an urge to try something with more...
I'm a big fan of Gillette adjustables. My main razor is a slim adjustable. But I like the fatboy, the red tip super speeds. I also have gotten interestes in older Gillettes, the double ring, single ring and the bell tube.
I like sharper blades, Pol silvers, gillette Nacet, 7 o'clocks, A...
Gillette Executive, approx 1949. This is what the folks ar Razor Emporium said in a video is the most beautiful American Gillette. The razor looks like the English Aristocrats with its spiral design handle and platinum finish.
The case is covered in ostrich leather. 1 corner had damage to the...
I bought a 501 special on ebay recently because it looked to be in mint condition, especially the case. The Gillette diamond in gold looks brand new.
Now I'm wondering if it is too good. It may be replated. But I've never seen a case replated. And how did the 'diamond' come to look so fresh and...
I have a gold plated slim adjustable that was marketed as an Aristocrat with a dark plastic case. It was probably a christmas thing.
I was considering buying a gold adjustable that had no case if it was easy to find the proper case, probably clear plastic.
I was wondering if anyone knows what...
I will be in New York for a week and was wondering if there are any places that sell shaving items like soaps, etc ?
I say manhattan because I find it the easiest to navigate. But I will actually be staying in brooklyn
I recently bought a pre shave gel. The brand is the grooming dept pre shave. I had never used a preshave before.
I rubbed some onto my beard as directed. I disliked the sticky feel of the product. However, I went on with my shave vowing to never use the pre shave again
Later I noticed that my...
I guess that I'm not a newbie since I had razors as a hobby 8 years ago but I lost interest and put my things in a box. During that time I became interested in fountain pens. I still like pens but a few months ago I took out that box of razors, brushes and soaps and renewed my interest in...
