Looking for a LASS BBS1.

Happy with head only, but will take the handle if need be.

I have items listed for sale on the BST that I'm willing to trade (currently ATT S1, ATT S2 and Kent BLK12) or funds available in PayPal.

Thank-you.

Hector, do you have a preference?
Does the BBS1 hold the blade differently to the Wolfman?

Not really. They both perform differently.  I feel the BBS-1 is a bit more aggressive than a regular Wolfman.  I definitely handle it with a bit more respect.  

I think the way the top cap is designed on the BBS-1 frames the blade better, if that makes sense.   Shave wise?  They both do the job IMO.

Ben, the BBS1 has four small posts on the top cap that hold the blade at the corners (I think you can see it if you look at the pics here). The Wolfman (as you know) has posts that extend through the middle of the blade to hold it in place.

I like them both, but find the BBS1 to be more elegant.

I also have both and can only agree: they are both stellar razors. Up until last week, I thought I prefer the (normal gap) Wolfman - but now I am getting some of the best shaves ever with the BBS-1...duel of the Titans Biggrin

That's funny. I initially had similar thoughts. I preferred the Wolfman over the BBS-1 but that's because I hadn't mastered it yet at the time. The Wolfman is a bit easier to use and figure the angle out... Once you get it, it's much smoother. I believe it has to do with how the blade is seated. Efficiency I want to say they are the same. I have to say the major difference really is smoothness. Both get the job extremely well done but BBS-1 is easier on the face
