Cheers David - just read the comment re Rolls razors, and am rummaging ebay for one. Got to be worth a punt, given the cost of Fusion blades. I used a Gillette G2 for over 20 years, and then they stopped making the blades. Bought a Mach3.. and ditto, they bought out Mach3 Turbo or something, and binned Mach 3 blades. Now on Fusion... at £11 for 3 blades, bugger that!There is no question so obviously stupid that it prevents one supposedly intelligent human from asking it of another.
Likewise, there is no human problem that cannot be solved by the correct application of the appropriate quantity of high explosive, the suitable quantity being derived by the Formula P, where P = "plenty"
Nobody ever imagined a bunch of Orcs would steal a database table...

I got one in an antique shop and another on (US) eBay. Good luck!
Be sure you read instructions as many come without instructions. There is one way and only one way to get everything back together and close the case and if you do it the wrong way and force the case shut the hone will crack. Also, if you put hone and stop back on the case backwards the razor will go the wrong way on the strop and cut it. In checking eBay make sure the hone and strop are OK. Also be sure the handle is included as I have seen some on eBay with no handle.
Good luck and READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. I would not want to see arrse threads saying "I remember Tiny when he had lips"

I used to use a battery razor for two days then proper shave on the third as I used to get scorching shaving rash not helped by kf shirts, on ex I'd use baby lotion to shave as it saved messing with water, soothed the skin and helped removed the cam cream as well.
if you buy rolls razors off ebay you might need a couple to make a good set up, also people sell blades thinking they are going in the antique cupboard so don't care if they have huge chips in them.
I have a habit now of shaving every couple of weeks but using clippers then brush and soap with cheapo twin blades, tesco works quite well and doesnt cut me to bits.
worst blades - the old white bic singles like slitting your throat with a broken bottle.

a senior Chinese officer has said, “all the great nations in the world own aircraft carriers – they are symbols of a great nation”. That’s why China has just commissioned its first. By the same token, to opt for a “carrier gap” of some years is to abandon your responsibilities.
