    Up for your consideration is a 1956 Flare Tip. While it cleaned up well, it is user-grade...there is plate loss, tarnish, and even a little rust. So caveat emptor (substituting whatever the Latin word for "gambler" is). This PIF is open to anyone (including non-CONUS) who doesn't already own a Flare Tip. Just say "I'm in." If '56 is your birth year, you get a second slot. I'll choose the winner next Monday, April 2, using a random number generator. Good luck!

    This is what it looked like before its spa treatment.

    Not in, I've got a couple of them. Great PIF!

    There's a reason many modern manufactures have produced copies of this razor - it works! For anyone who stated with a Weishi or Micro Touch One (as seen on TV) this is the Original. Solid brass construction that has stood the test of time. Most of the nickel plating survives, too!

    Great PIF! @rmcintyre84 May I put myself in for my son? He borrowed mine over the weekend and thought it was amazing.

    Not in, I have one of these as well. Great shaver, great PIF.

    Speaking of birth year razors, I guess I should look for a Gillette Super Adjustable Black Beauty from 1982. Probably my best option?? All my razors are much older
