    New Improved Tuckaway/Derby Premium/TOBS Sandalwood . Used one bottom shim to increase rigididty a bit, a very tame but decently effective shave. Derby might not be the best match here, a bit too tame for my taste. [​IMG]

    I did a shave-off between my favorite, a 2 piece RFB & the challenger, a Timeless SS .95. I prefer my RFB.

    MdC Fougere

    It was close, but for this shaver, it was the RFB that emerged victorious.

    Alright you Vintage Gillette Historians - I've got a question. A Super Speed with date code Z-1, but not a Flare Tip. The '40's style. Is that a TV Special only if it comes in the particular box?
