    And while you're looking at Pre-war Gillette, don't leave out British made Gillettes.

    The Stahly cap and base do give a smooth shave. If you happen to buy a working 3000VPM handle they're interesting, but a bit silly. Takes three to six rewinds to get in a three pass shave with a handle big as a 2 - C cell battery flashlight. Back when Gillette was selling their DE razors for a couple bucks, Stahly was asking $50. Now Gillettes can set you back retail $20-$hundreds. Stahly's still sell for around $50.
    Yes, please. :cool:

    If you really want to dive in, the krumholtz book is the best resource for finding razor names and companies.

    Some of my personal favorites, the aforementioned shake sharp and cooper monobilt razors. Also the british made 1936 open comb aristocrat, the #58, and the flat bottomed gillette aristocrat jrs. The american open comb aristocrat, sheraton and senator.

    There's a dozen more i could mention, but those are the gems of my collection that shave extremely well.
