    I bought mine for the razor, to play with. Maybe the cream will work well for my feet.

    That is why I jumped on it. Disappointed that it is a brushless cream.

    I am thinking it will lather even though. Most brushless creams will.

    We shall see. That is why I don't like Cremo. It does not lather.

    Mine came in - no photos yet. Left it in its box. Does not appear to be as grungy of a cap as others.

    Mine's weirdly discolored but cleans up ok. Had a nice shave with the included mystery blade.[​IMG]

    As an aside, the blade in the box seems to be a Gillette Super Stainless dating from 1969-76. Good blade.

    I haven't tried it yet, but it looked good. I may wait till I get my plastic Gillette for a full size handle.

    The discoloration on mine came right off with some dish soap and a green scrubby. The early pictures and my own first impression made me think it was corrosion. In retrospect, I think it is the remains of either a protective or anti-reflective coating and that the heads are probably WWII military surplus.

    FWIW, I had a very nice shave this morning with mine. Detailed report is over in the March Focus thread.

    So what color is your top cap after cleaning? Kind of a bronze (as is mine) or is that a coating you removed?

    Got mine today and it is the same as the OP's. Nice little razor.

    Now that is interesting. How did it shave?

    Just great. Just a single pass head shave but I think better than with the Simplex cap. I'm getting very close shaves with this guy.
