Good day

Here is a few of my gems in my British collection, Its taken a while to get these gems, I have found over the years majority of all British Razors work very well for me. This collection is almost finished I just need to find the Blue tip rocket and then I will be a happy camper Smile

Very nice collection. Haven't gotten my hands on these flare tips but if I find one in mint condition, or better, NOS, why not? They look so cool.

My favourite shaver out those would be the Redtip either super or rocket. For my favourite British shaver it would have to be the #66 or #16.

Love it Jordy. The British flares are some of my favorites. I'm missing that Rhodium TV special. That's a great piece.

Jordy - I'm curious about your opinion regarding shave quality differences between the British Red Tip vs. the US Red Tip.  Is one more aggressive, smoother, heavier, etc vs the other?

The Brit red tip vs the American one, I don't seem to find much of a difference. I find personally the British razors just shave better for me then the American ones. There are lots of discussions on the forums on which ones shave best or what works for them. My advice try them all lol. Smile

Very Nice. I'm a big Rocket fan and constantly on the look out for a new one.  Here's a few picked up this year.
