Sorry I have not been into the forum in a while and the great info on the Rolls razor.

I had been using a VDH TTO razor as my daily shave until I found a pre-WW2 Gillette Tech. Then a friend lent me a Feather razor and I had to have one as my daily shave. But I will wanted to master shaving with a straight and the Rolls. I have cleaned the leather strop with mink oil, I have worked on blade angle while shaving and for the past month the Rolls is my daily shave. It is far easier to maneuver than any of my straights (4/8, 5/8 and 6/8) and does a great job shaving with 2 pass plus touch up. Getting the soap wet enough makes the most difference.

Now I troll eBay looking for spare blades and undervalued Rolls razors.

So for those wondering about these, they are great and not as intimidating as a straight when migrating from a safety to a blade.

Mickey, I hope you're doing well and getting teh wind back in your sails!
