    Hi Guys

    Just got these the last few days all won on the 'bay. Got 2 Adams razors in original shippers so I'd guess they were NOS. At least they look like it. Also theres a very nice condition Rotbart with case. These might be a little under appreciated, although they're a very good mid range aggressive razor. The travel brush I also won and the cool thing is it's made from bone or antler.
    The last one is a Karl Engel razor that's not quite right. It has the handle and the base plate but not the cap. The seller had it put together with the base & cap from some Gillette clone on top of the Engel base and cap. Frankenrazor indeed. So I got to thinking about what or where I could find a cap that would work with the Engel parts I had. Tried a few I had in the "parts" bin and then had the "lightbulb" moment. Why not use the cap from one of my 2 Adams razors? It fit perfectly but now to test with a shave. It worked great. 2 passes w/touchup and I'm very pleased with my "FrankenEngel" as well as the other 2 razors. Yay....cheers P1010389.JPG P1010390.JPG P1010391.JPG P1010395.JPG P1010398.JPG P1010400.JPG P1010401.JPG P1010402.JPG
