AusPost finally delivered the 2 DEs from @Bucephalus last week. I was caught by surprise with the state that these 2 razors were in. Both were in such a pristine state that you could mistake them as vintage NOS (y) The mirror finish on the Wilkinson Sticky was amazing...no cracks or scratches on the plastic handle either! Really lucky to get my hands on these 2 gems :)

Great to hear it arrived safe and sound mate. It's a great little brush and the blades are my absolute favourite. Hope they're both to your liking. Haven't forgotten about catching up either mate, just still under the pump at home.

Received the Blacklands SE Sabre today!



The thread on the top plate the handle screws onto is a bit interesting as it's flat, just threaded on two sides, so that it fits the slot in the GEM blade. Can be a little fiddly to fit handle but easy enough and fits firmly. Has a nice feel/balance. I enjoy the vintage GEM razors I have, but they are not easy to clean. The Sabre is just like any three piece DE so will be easy to maintain. Looking forward to giving a run tomorrow.
Blacklands makes cool razors (with cool names, Sabre is even fun to say, preferably with Lego Batman voiceover). Hope it lives up to the reviews as I'm imagining the Sabre and Blackbird being in the line up.
