What's new

I joined the big leagues with a holy grail razor

Being the joyful, generous, helpful, and imaginative man you are put you in “The Big Leagues,” @Guido75

Exactly my thought.

Congrats @Guido75! And @Butch Waxx just secured a spot in Valhalla, unless he already had one!

TL;DR = I received a new razor which was at the top of my most wanted list.

Imagine. An office and office desk. Behind that office desk is me working on a survey report. I get my lunch pack out and take a peek on B&B to see if there is anything new. I see that I have received a message from one of the brothers and one with whom I have regular contact. He asks me for my mailing address.

My response in hindsight was kind of funny, because I thought he was referring to mail email address and jokingly I make a remark about not doing anything funny or something like that. His response however blew my mind away :eek2::ohmy:.

He suggested to send me a razor, that wasn't getting enough mileage in his den and asked if I was interested. And if I wasn't than that would be totally fine as well. In the past few months, I have had the privilege of receiving a couple of razors from very generous B&B brothers, and so at first I had the same initial reaction of slightly feeling uncomfortable :blushing:. But I have learned to accept PIF for what it is. However, he also send along a picture of said razor and after that I could only gasp for air. I wasn't even capable of forming sentences - everything was back to stuttering and single syllables.

Because what he offered me was nothing short of the number one razor on my most wanted list :drool:! After I caught my breath again, I told him I was literally over the moon and in total shock about his super generous offer and kindness. We exchanged details and with the help of two fine B&B brothers (a huge thank you to @Rosseforp and @Curly Straight for their postal advise! :thumbup:) a small package set out on a course from the US to the Netherlands.

I think I must have hit the refresh button on the tracking page about every other hour to see if there was any progress when last week things started moving again with the message that the package has made it to the Netherlands and needed to clear customs - which took another week and then today was delivery day!!!

So without further ado - please take a look at this:

I GOT A TIMELESS TITANIUM 95 !!!!! with a scalloped baseplate and Crown Handle WHAAAAAA!!!! :001_wub::001_wub::001_wub::001_wub::001_wub: And not only that, I also received the matching stand!!

I am gob smacked and truly, truly grateful for what has happened to me and the huge gift I received today. As you can imagine I think the world of this fine gentleman.

So, dear, dear, dear @Butch Waxx - what you have done is beyond words to me and beyond anything I could have ever hoped or prayed for. It is such an act of random kindness and a superb example of why this community, this little virtual village called B&B touches my soul. I joined just a couple of months ago thinking I would thank someone for a shaving technique, maybe pick up a few other techniques and suggestions and then that would be it. But the camaraderie, the gentlemanly communications, the kindness, the caring and supporting each other is truly remarkable. And this PIF thing is one aspect I have not gotten used to yet (well giving is easy, but the receiving part I find harder...).

Every shave with this magnificent razor will be in your honor and I truly believe you are a blessed human being and an example to others. If there were more people like you and other brothers the world would definitely be a better place.

@Butch Waxx - thank you from the bottom of my heart :ouch1:. I gave her an extra buffing and she is radiant. I think we will both have a great time during tomorrow's shave.

And the story actually doesn't end there - but that is for another day! :cuppa::001_rolle

Hello @Guido75 :cuppa:

Soooooo, I was looking at the Safety razor posts oh yay, and on this very fine sunny day, hooray! Not knowing what razor you got, your title of "Holy Grail" razor caught my eye, so I knew I had to take a look. I read your words of member appreciation, as I was drinking my coffee. And then once I saw the first picture of what you got, I kid you not, I spit my coffee out! :001_tt1:

That is the exact same razor, as well as configuration that I have, minus the engraving. That is at least a 340 dollar value right there. You just secured your holy grail razor is right, titanium perfection. Titanium hype lets go!!!!!!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!!!! :clap: Titanium is nice, so I'll say it twice, whiskers come off with every slice.

Excitement overload :thumbup: !!!WOOHOO!!! :thumbup:

Here's my holy grail razor!!!

Timeless Titanium TI95!


Smooth Top Cap
Scalloped Base Plate
Crown Handle
Stand Included

@Butch Waxx is a really nice guy. I've seen all versions of his Timeless razors that he owns, he has them in just about every configuration. And its IMHO, he gifted you his very best one. Holy cow! This is just truly amazing, I just can't get over it. Wait, checks eyes, nope, no floaters blocking my view, he most certainly gifted you a Timeless TI95 razor. 😍

Again congrats Guido! Welcome to the titanium club, its an experience like no other. And when you shave with one, you will most certainly realize that. I recommend Wizamet blades in the Timeless TI95 razor, or anything equally equivalent to it, which I am told that Polesilvers and Silver Blues would be, but I haven't tested those in mine yet.
