    Stopped in Big Lots tonight before we went to Golden Corral. There are noticeably fewer of those buck-fifty razors than before.

    I swear, every time I see a picture of a humble late '40s Super Speed, I think "You just can't beat 'em."

    I think I have 4 laying around to use as PIF razors but I've never used one. I went from a SS Flare to a 40s Arsitocrat and fell in love!

    More than anything though I was excited to find both glass items for relatively cheap. Everytime I've seen the Barbacide glass in my area its 35 bucks give or take and I've also seen the Barbasol bar for around 30 near me.

    Same here... last time I was in the Dollar Tree I saw one left inside a bin of disposable cartridges so I grabbed it. I wonder if they're going to re-stock? I didn't ask.

    I used that Pacific blade one time, and I didn't like it.... had a lot of tugging, but in fairness, I only tried the one blade. @EnglishChannel used the same blade several times and had more luck with it.

    My stirling package was waiting for me today...that 2 band synthie is UNREAL, I didnt think there would be a big difference between that and my pilsoft's, but I was soft and luxurious.

    The Christmas eve soap is a great scent..It is EXACTLY as it is named and I find it to not just be something you would pull out around Christmas, but a good fall/winter scent...If you are like me and do enjoying having soaps/scents for times of the year, then you will love this one... The vanilla bean espresso isnt my kind of scent, but it was one I wanted my wife to try out and she seems to like the scent so all is well.

    Pre-MonoBilt Cooper's were designed to use Cooper's proprietary blade. These are far more common than the later Cooper's, which were designed to use both Cooper and Gillette blades.

    The older Cooper's can be ground down to accept Gillette blades.

    That's all I know about them.

    Edit: and I still have and often use my Cooper MonoBilt.

    I've also heard that using the right size paper punch to enlarge the center hole of a modern DE blade will also work.

    I did. Reminds me of a Dorco, though I know it isn't. Shaved acceptably well.

    2nd or maybe 3rd shave with this Chinese blade, in the President. 3 days growth. Shave was a bit rough, time to pitch it, but BBS and feeling fine after witch hazel. They're not great blades but they are serviceable and do shave okay.

    While you’re wiping off the factory grease from the razor, I’m wiping off the drool from my chin.

    That is one fantastic find!
