    A fresh, clean thread for this... Thanks brit!

    Everyone please remember threads in Safety Razors are for discussion and pictures of razors themselves: quality, dislike, rareness, blade exposure, opinions on how they perform, broken, repairing, photography and documentation pertaining to, etc. Drive-by Shave of the Day posts and any other unrelated posts should be done in their appropriate sections throughout the forum.

    Are Franken-Razors permitted? I much prefer 3 piece razors so I can use them on a handle of choice. I use SE more than DE these days, but I still really like my Old Type pictured on a BRW Improved handle. It isn't cased, not particularly rare nor valuable, but I get fantastic shaves using it. If franken-razors aren't permitted, let me know and I will scurry down the lane. :)

    Nice sets. The New Deluxe is another great shaver.

    I got a friend of mine into DE shaving a few years ago using a triangle tech. After a year, I gifted him a Weber Bulldog handle followed up with a red and black set new deluxe. Not the prettiest razor, but after the first head shave with it, he said he is done looking for razors as this one was perfect.

    very cool.after deciding not to replate mine i polished it up and bought the carve handle for it.the original handle was too light imo and not in the greatest shape.i currently have a mint New LC cap on it.i need to use it more often..;):eatdrink047:
