    Yesterday I bought from an Etsy seller an Eclipse Red Ring razor, with the Bakelite case and the razor looks like it’s in pristine condition. Here are some screen shots I took of the sellers pics. I should receive this glorious razor Tuesday in the mail. If you have or had this razor let me know how you liked it. I’ve been on the hunt for this razor for about 2 years now. 3F7FFAD7-F9A6-4BAE-B889-6C7258CB1A48.jpeg 98ABBB66-5C37-441F-947C-1BA9A8C4D94E.jpeg 086B01D9-24D2-4566-B9CB-8DDD7987F633.jpeg 9D5A4DBF-8C6E-402D-ABE5-92367E054ADA.jpeg 017F2B4E-BF3E-403E-96C2-99F833A19907.jpeg F0193304-A517-47DE-A0B0-260D099E6705.jpeg

    I've always heard that they were fairly aggressive. They are also prone to micro cracks in the handle, though I've never heard of that affecting the razor's use.

    If I ever spotted one in the wild for $100, I would snag it. They are good looking razors.

    I’ll let you know when I get it and shave with it. I’ve heard this razor accepts modern DE blades.

    These came in a few iterations. That is an earlier one that has the art deco sun on the cap. The later ones don't have that on the cap. Some also say eclipse on both sides and some with red ring on both sides.

    Shave should be efficient but not overly aggressive. As far as hairline cracks in the handles that is fairly common with these razors just like with the Gillette old type and new razors. They don't affect the shave but if it has one some plumber adhesive works well to stabilize it from spreading any further.
