Let's see your watch and fountain pen photos



Recommended Posts

Love the One Blade.

 

They are coy about it, but does this also take standard double edge blades?

 

Nah you're limited to either the Feather SE blade it is designed for (which I personally rather like) - or you can de-spine the regular GEM SE blades and use those as well (I haven't personally tried that).

 

If you're looking for a new all stainless steel razor you might want to take a look at Rocnel :)

Rocnel is a solid stainless steel razor that takes DE blades snapped in half (super easy to do btw).

The cost? $25 :)

 

Some photos of mine:

And..to make it pen-relevant..here's me trying to draw it with a fountain pen:

Thanks for the info Darkbulb!

 

 

Like everything else I collect, razors are one of the vices. I have a lot of Merkurs, a Pil, Cobra, Feather and others. I also have a Kickstarter razor coming my way.

I will check into this ..

 

BTW, GREAT photos.

(I looked at the site, and they are out of stock-also funny that this model is $25 when their other model is $295).

Yeah this razor was made in an extremely cost efficient way.

I've spoken to Murat, the owner there, about it and the head (which often represents the vast majority of the cost) is all one piece so it became a two-piece razor which ended up being rather simply to machine. Their DE is a much more upscale offering.

 

Yeah they sold out on their site at the pre-order price of $25 BUT...in 2-3 weeks it will start selling from a third party store in Turkey (online as well of course). The price will be bumped to $35 which still, I think, is a rather awesome value.

 

I made a review of it over here if you want to read some more:

OP: Sorry for the de-railing.

Now, back to watches and pens! :)

I'm joining to strengthen the female line...

My old beloved and "battle" damaged Fossil ES2980, the strap changed to a purple Hirsh Princesse Catwalk, because I like purple better and not mentioned its not sensitive as the white strap.

And a bit newer one, also a Fossil:
