    Just as the title state's. If you could acquire an unattainable shaving item. Be it a razor, soap, cream or whatever?

    What would it be?

    Old Spice should really bring back the mug & soap for a Christmas special gift set.

    I would love to stumble over a toggle or bottom dial for $10 at a flea market.

    I’d say for me, I’d like to get a hold of a Gillette Double Ring razor just to see how it shaves. However the price they go for is beyond my budget.

    I have 2 Wilkinson Sticky razors. I might be able to part with one of them with you, but just so you know the one I’d let go has some plate loss and the plastic on the baseplate is cracked. If you’d like it message me.

    Would like to know how close the Shulton O.S. round stick deo was to the aftershave but no one has come across one that wasn't dried to a rock. The new red "Original" isn't bad but it only hints at the original scent.

    More Mvltiplex razors, and some very weird prehistoric slants, including one whose patent describes adjustability by moving parts of the handle against each other.

    1930's Abercrombie & Fitch open comb slant.

    I'm currently waiting for an almost as rare Valencia fat handle slant to arrive in the post.

    The two razors look identical, so that raises some questions. It's generally known that the A&F razor was made by Merkur for A&F. The Valencia razors (all slants) were made by Leresche for Valencia.

    Neither razor was ever sold under the Merkur or Laresche brand names.
