Here is my newest BST purchased, restored to nice and shiny condition. I figure with cycling season coming up, I needed a good leg shaving razor.....Kidding I was a little worried when it showed up as it was dirty and grungy, but under all that was a nice looking razor with no watermarks, rust, tarnish, scratches or gouges. TTO works fine, star paint is 100% in tact and no damage to any of the blue knurled handle. Some scrubbing bubbles, alcohol, Maas and time/effort and out came a very nice razor.
I actually figured I'd try to get my wife hooked on it, so we can stop buying her expensive cartridges and allow me to buy more product (soap, brushes etc) without feeling guilty.
I thought I'd start her off with a Blue Star Lady Gillette (date code P1) and add a nice brush and cream and give her a little DE Care Package.
Here are the before (1 pic) /after pics of the razor.
