How bout a list of the also-rans? (I presume that's reflected in your BST). I need to give the SC a shot, I've tried pretty much everything else.

Actually, the BST thread is shaped as it is because I literally bought anything and everything I could as long as I thought it was in VG to better condition...if anyone said anything positive about it...anywhere.
I still have at least one copy of most of the razors that are being sold.
I really like the NEW razors. I’ve settled on the Pre-war and NDC Tech as my safety bar 3-piece. It’s hard to let go of the Black-Tips and Red-Tips, so I still have a one of those. I liked the Blue-Tip and Flare, and my son has a nice one of each too.
I did decide to pass my black beauty on, but if you look, it was really, really nice. That’s the only one I don’t still have. I decided to withdraw 2 of my Schick razors because I think I might like them after all and I don’t mind having all the colors.
The only New Improved razors I have, I’m keeping. And I like having a few Old Tyles and Single Rings as “Lookers” and 1 nice user for each.
But I believe the NEW has been a legitimate DE RAD killer or inoculation.
On to SE’s I guess. I think I’m withdrawing my Lather Catchers too.

I've found my tastes change as my skills evolve. When I was first exposed to injectors and SEs I scrapped most all my Gillettes as being too inefficient. Looking back some of that was not being adequately skilled in getting the most out of mild razors. Now I can better appreciate mild razors like the Tech, and am more open minded about revisiting some Gillettes I rejected and others I hadn't tried (in addition to a Postwar Tech I have a Single Ring, Old Type, and New Improved).

So I snagged this one for a pretty reasonable cost ($21: shipped). Looking forward to seeing how she works.[Image: 97c04bafc907f6ba2ece9223d9dc2eeb.jpg]
