    Certainly was, Bob :001_smile To be honest, I couldn't quite believe my luck. That ...... and I snagged it on a Thursday evening, so had to wait until the next day for the seller to dispatch, then the weekend for it to arrive; there's always a bit of paranoia in the back of your mind that some...

    Ebay, what happened here?

    1: Time your listings so that all of Europe, The US and Down Under are all up and about in time to see them ending. 2: Take absolutely s*** hot images of your razors. 3: Make sure your listing is categorised properly (got myself a bottle of vintage Signoricci for £20 delivered the other day...

    Rare sighting . This makes two .

    Aye, lads....... Just for clarity ...... What has me animated is that I've found evidence of a second set with razor intact. As far as I know, a couple of B&B members have an injector and a case between them also........ so sightings of any bits of these sets is a bit exciting..... Now, if we...

    Rare sighting . This makes two .

    Whoever owns the set in the first image knows what they've got ....... If you Google 'Extremely Rare Gillette Techmatic' that's the image that comes back ....... and it's not my set. It seems odd that someone ready to put their razors on Pinterest doesn't pipe up on any of the razor forums. I...

    Rare sighting . This makes two .

    Best guess these could be dated to was 1947? ....... I think that was based purely on patent dates ........ but that's all it was: A best guess. There's absolutely no info out there on these.

    Rare sighting . This makes two .

    So ....... I was mooching about Google images, trying to tweak out an image that might help me ID a handle fitted to an Ever Ready 1912 ......... And this catches my eye, from a Pinterest feed ...... Insofar as I am absolutely aware now .......... That means there are now two almost...

    Anyone know of a Polo green clone?

    You could also try Surrati's 'Jannat ul Firdous' Attar .......... I've just made the mistake of touching the tip of my nose with the roller ball on my bottle; now it's all I can smell :001_smile Very reminiscent of Polo's big, soapy opening ........ Bloody strong, this ........:laugh...
