    You would be amazed at what a built in hone does for a carbon blade. (If you are curious, it does absolutely nothing for or to a stainless blade, imo).

    I think it is time to send out a few pms first then do a BST listing after reading this thread since I have a few of these razors and hardly use them anyways. :D

    I'd like to find a nice original straight razor made in the 1700's.

    What is it about the 2011 R4q that moves you to seek them out?

    To quote @battle.munky "the R41 is a whisker squeegee"

    The 2011 R41 delivers a 4-pass shave with 2-passes.

    I’d like a Grath Type 1 razor. Saw one at the Shave Collectibles mtg last month.

    I guess that’s not true of the newer model?

    The newer model is safer.

    I mean less aggressive. :p

    IMHO, yes.

    Quite Right. On both accounts.

    At this stage of my game, as it pertains to wet shaving, my list is way too long to put here. Suffice it to say, I see something new and wonderful you guys talk about every day or so. Granted that's a bit of an exaggeration, but the sentiment is valid.

    But this would make me happy!

    A Gillette Toggle. It wouldn't have to be mint, I'm not that way. At least not yet. But to just have one to have on the "shelf" would be a fine moment for me. That concept fascinates me. I understand, folk's hesitations, but it is what it is.

    There would easily be others, but my eye goes to that Toggle.

    EDIT:

    Oh yeah! And a Stahly! Again a fascination with the concept/idea of it.
