    I'm also curious to try some Personna Blue blades. My face really likes Astra SP blades but it would be great to support a U.S. based manufacturing plant.

    I have a razor to try out.
    during the month I got a new to me, fatip Grande,via a trade. I am going to use it for the first of Aug.
    ( didn't think it was right FOR ME to use it during the no buy month)

    If you haven't used a FaTip before, be forewarned that they have a reputation of 'biting' folks still learning to use them at a rate that surpasses theoretically more aggressive razors. I like my Piccolo just fine, but I know our resident BaconLord, Kevin, found the FaTip to be too prone to nicks and weepers - and he prefers the most aggressive razors available.

    And how many way cool razors do you have even without the Hydromagic? For most of the people here, I suspect the glass is half full rather than half empty. Just bide your time and another great Hydromagic deal will eventually come along. The :( could very well turn out to be a :). Heck, if you are enjoying your shaves with what you have, the :( is really a :D, is it not?
