    Bakelite-handled Barbasol Razor
    Finish on head is very rough (see photos).

    Very classy President! Right birth year, but wrong quarter. Mr Eisenhower says to pass on this one.

    Good luck with your sale!

    Ah nuts, and I just spent my discretionary money too!
    Saving money? No, I said that was my Shaving money. You can never have enough razors... until they overflow your shave den. Then it's time for a bigger den.

    I have that Barbasol. Highly recommend. Great price. It is not the same dimensions head as the metal one but it's a nice shaver. Here's a review I did, and once I confirmed that the identical-looking Conrad and Barbasol shaved the same, I sold the Conrad to someone named Conrad, and kept the Barbasol that I use regularly. You should buy it.
