It has arrived. Just received a sweet 56 Red Tip from off of E-Bay. It looks like it is in great shape. The only brassing is on the inside bottom plate and it has a few nicks in the red paint which seems to be the norm. The rest of the razor is nice and shiny. For what I paid compared to what they have been going for I got a great deal. It cleaned up nicely and is on deck for tonight. The reason I bought one is I already have a 54 Flair Tip that is a nice razor in excellent condition, only the shaves I get are not as close as I'd like. With my other razors it seems the shave lasts longer before I start getting stubble. I really like the 54. It's a beautiful razor that came cased. Just not totally satisfied with the end results. So there she sits. My Red Tip should have more teeth. I am excited to give it a try. Tell me Oh Swami's of the Wet Shave World, can I expect a big difference between the 2?

Gave that baby a ride. What a great little razor. Loaded her with a Red Personna and away we went. Shaves like a dream. In the last week I've acquired 2 great razors. I have to say I've been doing my homework and listening to you more experienced wet shavers. It's through your guidance that I now know what I want from my equipment. And once I have that equipment how to get the results that we all strive for.... Thanks my Shave Nook brethren!!!
