Hello!

I discovered this forum while trying to identify the razor my father shaved with 'til the day he died. Turn out it's a Gillette Flare Tip Super Speed made in the year/quarter of my birth (I-4)! Needless to say it holds great sentimental value, it's the razor he let me "shave" with when I was a boy. I can remember scrapping the lather from my face like it was yesterday.

I also discovered, thanks to you fine fellows, that I don't have to have my face assaulted every morning by multi-blade nightmares and to that end (and after reading many posts here) am awaiting delivery of my new Polished head/Bulldog handle Weber. I also just placed an order for the Simpson Phyl8 LE -- so I think I'm off to a good start!

Thanks,
Leon
