    As you can see, the cases were made for the longer, Uncommon Bar handles, not the Common Bar handles, or even this handle. The other handle has the knurling of a typical Ball End, but a base knob like the above, only plain knurling, not diamond or Art-Deco.

    I don't know of a razor that provides a better shave for me than my RFB. And for an AS splash, my wife prefers TSD Bourbon & Vanilla over all others. Kudos TSD!!!!
