Hello there, Klenzo!

The Klenzo comes equipped with a familiar head. This is the Conrad or Barbasol Non-Floating variety. There may be others, but this is one of the few of this head in a gold tone that I’ve seen.

As beautiful a Super Speed as there have ever been!Today I am unpacking a gifter razor for my son’s 16th birthday as he decided to get into DE shaving. Or at least I thought I was when I noticed the package contained TWO razors. Or gifter decided to throw in a birth year razor for dad as well!!
This will definitely see its debut this weekend for Gillette Weekend:

It’s in a pristine condition as far as I’m concerned. Wow!!
@mgweatherly - you are an amazing soul. You reached out to a young boy for a vintage razor to get into this hobby of ours and then went beyond by slipping in this little surprise for me. I have no other words or thoughts than AMAZING!
Thank you so much. My boy’s birthday is next week and when he has his first shave I will include his experience in my shaving journal.
Thanks @lasta - Mitch is a hero. The Gillette Slim Adjustable he got for my son is as beautiful as this one. I sincerely hope I can convey that special character to my boy so he will truly appreciate the generous gift he’s gotten.As beautiful a Super Speed as there have ever been!
Congrats on getting one from the @mgweatherly collection, probably the last bastion of shiny Superspeeds around.

Thanks, it smells nice so I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Might have to try the cream as well, how does it compare to TOBS or T&H? Merry Christmas!I have this one in the shaving cream version,wonderful stuff,hope you enjoy,have a wonderful Christmas bro
If being honest,i actually like it better than TOBS,been a while since ive used my T&H,but if i remember correctly i preferred it to the T&H tooThanks, it smells nice so I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Might have to try the cream as well, how does it compare to TOBS or T&H? Merry Christmas!
Wow! That looks fantastic!Some LA Shave Co Fougere, and some Bay Rum goodness from Sterling and Ogallala.
I also picked up a new handle. I bought a flat bottom tech head in the BST from @kingfisher and decided I needed (I totally don’t) a handle to pair with it. Well I saw this on Back Roads Gold’s Etsy page and decided to splurge. Even though it’s more than I have paid or would ever pay for a cased Slim I thought it was neat and was feeling spendy. Looks good with the tech head I think.
