    As the Parker is returning to its owner @Mark1966 soon I thought it might be nice to keep the pass around going.

    Any of you gents interested in trying the Red Ring?

    It will be the same basic rules,
    I’ll post it out to the first person.
    They can keep it for a week then they pass it on to the next person a their cost.

    I'd be interested in trying that @Ferret619 .
    How do they propose to collect GST on imports @Mark1966 ?

    Would love to give it a try.

    Edit1: A mild shaver that can deal with several days growth and finds its own angle?

    Ticks all the boxes I would say

    Edit 2: why is it that once I hear about an intresting razor, I always find out it’s a rare or expensive purchase. Very thankful to @Ferret619 for the opportunity to try out

    I’ll add you to the list :)

    @lerenau @cactusjack @Pbgoose
    And @Rami


    This is a razor with a lot of sentimental value and is a user through n through.
    I’ll add some other fun stuff to the box for you lot to try

    If it has sentimental value, I think I will opt out.

    Money comes and goes but a family piece or something can’t really be replaced.

    Up to you but really it’s a user that should be experienced- I’m not worried
