Pictures to follow...

Purchased a lot of razors on eBay out of which

1 - 1953 President (missing endcaps) otherwise perfect
1 - 1958 Fatboy (excellent)
1 - 1958 TV Super Speed (excellent) w/case (very good)
2 - Red-tip 1956 Super Speeds (one missing end caps)
1 - Brownie handled Tech
1 - Thick handled Tech

and purchased from GB, a bakelite travel-cased "New Gillette" the case says "Made in USA" on the velvet lined top, but the blade-guard says "Made in England". May be a miss-match but it sure looks like they were made for each other.

Jim,
Forticea? Is that a shampoo? It looks like it has some exfoliating beads in it.

Matt it is shampoo, the beads are according to the propaganda EO's I recieved this as a sample and I am very impressed with the performance so I picked a tube up. A tiny pea sized amount is all you use. My bride also likes it.

Can not wait to try the Soap love the Cologne
And was looking for something to trim the sideburns and mustache and maybe a little around the ears between trips to the Barber, tried it today and this Dovo fits the bill perfectly highly recommended for this purpose

Very nice. I passed up a chance recently to get my hands some of that soap as I picked Penhaligon's English Fern over it. Not that the Fern isn't outstanding, but now I'm wishing I'd just picked up one of each.

Happy Bday to me! A family friend heard I collect shaving stuff and presented me with a beautiful Rolls Razor. It's in excellent shape, except for the box, and has all the pieces. I don't think I'll be shaving with it, but it's a cool addition to the collection.
