Well I was lucky enough to pick this Barbasol "Floating Head" razor up from a really nice fellow from here on The Nook.....
I have been looking for one on Ebay and several vintage shops for awhile and just never had any luck finding one that was in the condition and price that
I was looking for until now......Thanks to Bryan being a kind fellow allowing me to pick up this fine razor from him, so I figured I would share it with the
community.....

Was it re-plated? It looks fantastic.

They are great shavers. Mine is out on loan right now, but am looking forward to it returning home.

I'm pretty sure you'll hate how it shaves..and if you come to that conclusion just send me a PM and I might just take it off your hands. Better than you just throwing it away Biggrin

You done good! Bryan did you a favor! Very assertive, use no pressure and a stiff blade!! A thin blade may wiggle and bend with that much exposure. Go easy with it until you know the razor and your face! Try a few blades before getting too frustrated.
Think Fat Boy set to stun or Gem 1914 on steroids!
