    Gio @ BarbieraItaliana has just updated his Razor page with a beautiful lineup
    of Weishi TTO's in some unusual & very appealing finishs.

    If they shave like the old Gillette TTO's they could prove worthy RAD candidates and a particularly attractive alternative to the HD for Newbies as a good NEW "starter" mower.

    If you click on the pictures they explode out to Big Pic pages that are real nice razor porn. The "travel" cases included look pretty danged nice too.

    Am anxious to start hearing some feedback from the initial purchasers to see if they shave as great as they look. It looks like Weishi has really STEPPED UP design/finish wise from the old days.

    Anyhoo, if u got a few minutes surf over to Gio's & enjoy the pics. I think he
    may have an "exclusive" on these state-side.

    (LOL, I didn't know the ol'guy could take such good pix).

    Had a short email-chat with Gio this afternoon. Nice guy.

    He says that the workmanship and quality was so good that it surprised him....... Better even than the old stock Weishi that he had.......and the finish was better than that of a Merkur. (which is not hard to believe)

    He also mentioned that blade symmetry was spot -on. Something that is very important to me.

    I have a gun-metal Weishi on the way to me. ::

    C'mon guys, ya gotta admit U R INTO Razor Porn & this is Prime Stuff...LOL

    Joe, please post your impressions after you've done a few tours of your mug with the GunMetal beauty. LOL...not as interested in the Brush impressions BUT I BET we get them anyway !!!! Just kidding, actually, do wanna know which Omeg you got, model, knot size 'n stuff. Am kinda thinking about adding
    a brush to the den as l'il bambino is getting awfully lonely.

    Seriously, those are some parade of bee-you-tFul mowers with some very unusual finishes.
    The Gunmetal is fantasmic and that Gold/Chrome job looked pretty razor porny too. Nice knurling work on all the handles also. That you ain't gonna get with your basic '67 Gillette black plastic handle TTO on eBay !!!

    The price seemed quite competitive also.

    If the fit & finish is as good as Gio has observed, Weishi could be arriving as
    some stiff competition to the Euro brands. This line is a huge step up from what they were selling previously. They've obviously made a big investment for a major assault on the DE razor competition.

    Starting with TTO was probably a good idea as it's a grand old design w/o a whole lot of NEW competition. For a Newbie who is thinking about an old
    virus'n'vermin infested G-TTO from ebay, this is a great option to go NEW instead of used.

    Will be interesting to see where Weishi goes next.

    All in all, I was really impressed with the LineUp. Course, haven't shaved with one yet, that's y we're all depending on our good ol'Joe.

    And just when you thought you had yer RAD beat, it's suddenly RAD Symptom Flare-Up time !!!

    My first impression beside 'Que Lindo" was that the gunmetal finish was created for Leisure Guy & Kafeneio so they'd have something special to
    load their Batman/Black Beauty blades into.

    Ya know, a pic of the Gunmetal finish with the "Jaws" open & loaded with a Treet CS would be awful pretty Razor Porn.
