Participation PIF - A Tale Of Two Bridges

Morning is just breaking in two cities on separate ends of two continents. The fog is just beginning to lift. Off in the distance, raising from the morning mist it's London Bridge...BUT...is it England's vintage London Bridge or is it China's newer London Bridge? As you wipe the sleep from your eyes, you realize that it's BOTH!! A tinge of thrill courses thru your razor!! Which one to try first?!? Which is better?!?


A Great Big Thank You to @AnimalCatcher, who bravely crossed the time continuum, to bring us 110 vintage Made-In-England, sealed in authentic cellophane plastic, London Bridge Super Stainless Blades, along with 100 Made-In-China-By-Gillette-Shanghai London Bridge Super Stainless Blades to pit old-against-new in your choice of Bridges To Cross!! As your brain begins clear, you realize what great fortune has befallen you, yet you cannot decide. You call for help!! Cutting through the morning dew, a thunderous chorus of hooves come to your rescue, as @AnimalCatcher has also included Wilkinson "The Sword" Light Brigade Chromium Blades!!

Participants can choose 2 or 3 each of the London Bridge Super Stainless Blades and, 1 or 2 of the Wilkinson "The Sword" Chromium Blades.

Thinking of Ricardo Montalban
Just a FYI, gents. Wilkinson Sword 'Light Brigades' are considered by many blade aficionados to be the finest double edge razor blades ever made. They certainly are 'my' top blade, even beating out another favorite of mine, the legendary Personna 74s. :a23:

Rumor has it, the UK made London Bridge blades in this PIF are actually Light Brigades. I'm not going to render an opinion on the matter.... I'll leave that up to you good people to decide whether or not this longstanding rumor has any validity.

I hope you gentlemen have a blast! I'm going to kick back and watch the fun!:popc:
