Junk shop score today. What did I pay for them both? In US dollars: $7.45. Yep, that's right. For both.

The clean and polish picture.

They look clean. Is that how you found them or is that picture after cleaning?

Hi, yes, as the post says: "The clean and polish picture". Smile Elbow grease, cleaning products, and a bit of metal polish. I have my clean and polishing system worked out after a few years now. Different grades of plating requires different modes of polishing. The Fatboy and Slim, for example, I find to have poor plating quality. The flare tip passable. The #58, much better, and you can polish a little more deeply without going down to brass.

Curious where you found the date info for the FT rocket II? I've got the same one and haven't been able to date it...

Try Mr Razor

Many examples of dated razors including flare tip. A good resource
