Just for fun, here is my flare tip:

Obviously it’s been refinished. It’s done it cerakote or gun kote.
That's pretty slick looking.

Lsj74, That’s an impressive collection. Some interesting razors and old blade packs. Looks like a Simpson brush in there too.

A friend of mine had some trouble for a while when he was starting out and he learned that any soap that contained even small amounts of menthol, like Proraso, caused him irritation. It was a little like razor burn.

Thanks! :)

Delta Echo Razorworks is who did the refinish work. He does some pretty cool stuff if your not a purist.

I don't know what it is. I have used menthol shaving cream without issues in the past. Right now I'm just letting the beard grow. I haven't shaved since February.
MaxwellG is buying a couple of the adjustable razors and I'm thinking about putting the rest on eBay.

Well thanks to lsj74 I purchased two razors from him...thanks again they are nice.
Turns out the one on the left is a Gillette 1958 "Fatboy". The one on the right is a Gillette 1967 "Slim".
I cleaned and sanitized them. They'll be getting packed up for Revamp at Razor Emporium so they'll be nice, clean and shiny to use.

I used the Fatboy (unofficial nickname) Model 195 was the real name of the razor and was reference to it's price of $1.95 when introduced by Gillette.
It provides a beautiful close shave, I've used it 3 times this week.

Glad you're happy with them.
May they provide you with lifetime of baby smooth shaves.

Nice looking razors. It will be nice to see them when they get back from Razor Emporium. Are they going to do any replating/refinishing, or just repair and clean?

They look OK - no re-plating needed, both need a good internal cleaning, polishing and repaint the numbers on the dial...all part of the Razor Emporiums "Tune-up" Service.
