    Default rolls razors

    just wondering how many of you use or atleast have used a rolls razor? i personally have a fair few (as i imagine many people do) that i use relatively often and have always found them a quite acceptable shave.

    Got 'em, use 'em, love 'em. I try to encourage their use whenever I can.

    I have one, but only have used it once. I can't seem to get the blade sharp enough for my liking.

    I have three sets and two usable blades. I don't use them nearly as much as they deserve, great razors and great concept.

    I've got a very good condition Rolls that I have yet to shave with. I'd like to have the stone and strop cleaned up and the blade professionally honed before I use it.
