I truly enjoy my slants but for some reason the Hoffritz just seems less aggressive but the efficiancy maybe better or mayby my minds playing tricks on me. Either way its always a tough choice in the mornings.

Good looking razors, all of them. I especially like how different they look from each other, each with its own character.

Ever since those Bakelite's appeared on the bay earlier this year, I've been regretting not acquiring one. Can you tell me what I'm missing? Does it's lighter weight equate to a more moderate shave or is it every bit as effective as it's metal counterparts?

I thought that looked like his talent on display. I'm enjoying the pleasure of finishing a custom brush with him at the moment. I agree that he's a superior vendor here on the Nook. We truly are fortunate to have such skilled artisans at our disposal. I'm sure you'll keep enjoying your Elite Razor for years to come. Oh yeah, those others aren't to shabby either. Winky

Great collection! Is that light colored one a Fasan - or is that a Hoffritz as well?

I'm betting that it's the no name made in Germany bakelite slant that showed up on ebay a couple months ago and that IB sells now (unless they're sold out already).
