Hi,

I'm still in search of a nice Darwin Deluxe. Also on my Christmas wish list are a Leresche #77, Apollo Mikron, and a Barbasol floating head.

I know these are all long shots, but it never hurts to ask.

Cheers,

I can't speak to the others...but the Barbasol Floating Head is, in my opinion, one of the finest razors ever built...and I do mean ever.

Good luck!

I kind of agree about the Barbasol. The shave is tremendous, if you like an aggressive razor (I do). But the construction was not so great. The head is die-cast zinc alloy, which is a pretty soft metal that is prone to pitting and bending. So it can be hard to come by one in nice shape. I have one in pretty rough shape that provides a superb shave. I'd like to upgrade it to one in better shape.

I know this is the wrong spot to ask, but what is the easiest way to tell if the barbasol razor has a floating or stationary head? I keep looking for one on eBay myself.
