Nice collection, Jack. I especially love the model in the cream case - very art deco.

That's a sweet collection, and nearly all cased as well.

Well done, Jack! Glad to see the Damaskeene made it safe and sound.

Some may argue, but I find that to be progress, indeed! (Gillette to SE)

What are your thoughts on those fine shaving instruments? What's your favorite right now?

Very Nice Jack.

You didn't give up on the Feather Portable did you?

Love it! W00t

You've done an amazing job at acquiring some of the finest SEs around. Do you think you'll give the Cobra Classic a try?

Thanks guys.

In order:

1. My favourite is Streamline but it have problem with spring. Cap is bit loose.
2. I still own DE's Feather Portable, Gillette No.58, Gillette TV Special NOS and Muhle R41 2010 which is on loan to friend in Norway.
3. Cobra Classic is temptation but I cannot justify the price sadly.

My Top 3 Streamline, 1912 and Damaskeene

DE my favourite is Feather Portable.

Thanks again.

I am fan of GEM SS, works great for me. First shave is just ok but 2,3,4 and 5 are great.

I have on way another GEM and I am tracking down some Ever Ready's
Point is I need sabbatical as my wife is upset on my spendingsSmile

I am late to the party. I see you have one of each of the really good shavers. My favorite is the EverReady shovel head "Streamline?" with the hinge at the comb. The GEM Micromatic bullet is a good Gem also, however not quite in the class of your picks!. I am pleased that you also have the boxes! I am not so lucky.
