Got some vintage razors to add in.

New listing: Vintage Gillette Safety Razor (England, Twist-To-Open, Circa 1953)

Above average condition. The TTO mechanism squeaks a bit, but the doors close flush and the blade reveal is straight.


Rocket #58, those are good looking and nice shavers :)

Looking good Mo. Preferences will vary, but I always wanted to get my grubby little fingers on the Mr. Taylor….. But whatever scent you choose, you will get a very nice shaving cream. :D

I concur.
Polsilver rocks!

When there was a rumour of them stopping production I bought enough blades to keep my grandchildren shaving into their retirements ;-)

Classic take on the scuttle RVT, very nice. For those who have not experienced a scuttle I highly recommend this for warm luxurious lather. My favourite is a Tabac scuttle lather :thumbup:
