I am soooo cloooose to being done with this Simpson's. I've been trying to 3017 this tin and I can't wait to move on. The only question is, what's next? I have Tabac, Cella, Formula T Tobacco and a few others that have been used a bit and I want to go through my opened soaps before I get into a new one. Maybe I'll post a poll...
 
Here is one of my flare tips and I have three questions for you. I would describe as an English Flare Tip Rocket. Is that the correct description? Secondly, is there any way to accurately date this razor? Thirdly, is this more aggressive than the US version as is often the case with English and US razors? I suspect yes to the first question, no to the second, and not sure about the third. Thanks.
