Took my OC plate about 2 and 1\2 weeks.
Has anyone had to pay customs? How do they collect them anyway?
And it's not scheduled to get here until next Thursday. I may not buy an OC plate. I always forget how long International packages take to get delivered.
you need an oc plate sir..
You're English, and live in Canada, you're supposed to be nice and not enable me .
i am being nice sir, me not having a karve is ok at present but i enjoy others enjoying them..when i get one once i have completed my gillette set i will get a b plate sb and oc with a 3" handle..
I've read the OC plates tend to be a step up from the SB plates of the same designation.
Did have to pay customs ..I guess that was included in the price.
Is that how it works?
I guess or it may be below a certain value and no customs fees are due.
i heard it was $100 from there to here back in the day..anything over was taxable..could be wrong..
$100 CAD or $100 USD?
not sure, used to buy groceries from the u.s in the 90s,cross border shopping..

Awesome shave this morning with some solid hitters. Started out with a Voskhod that was used but it was just too tuggy so I switched to an Astra SP. The Astra was a lot smoother. I must have had more mileage on the Voskhod than I realized.
I have not shaved with the Karve in a while so I felt it was time to get it of the box. The more I use the OC the more I like it. No weepers or nicks and the alum was quiet this morning. The last few times I have been using the Karve a little visitor would crawl into the bathroom and quickly crawl out, eluding me to no avail. I can honestly say that I caught the little visitor this morning. That rights guys, I caught the baby!
I finished up with some Nivea post balm and Stirling Noir aftershave.
Take care and have a great day.
awesome shave and pic sir..
I'm going to have to stop reading this forum because now I have a desire to own one of these Karve DE razors. I'm thoroughly satisfied with my Mercur Futur and Ikon X3 razors, but I am really tempted by this razor. I think that I will read a little more and watch the Youtube reviews on it before making a decision.
It looks like once the OC head was released most of this thread on the razor has been about the OC. Tough decision because I have never owned an open comb razor.
Both plates are great. If you don't mind buying used be on the look out. That is how I acquired mine and saved some money. I mean what can go wrong with it? It is solid brass.
