    I've just been doing a bit of reading on Blue Tips they sound like nice Razors. I think I will see if I can track one down.

    As a sad rule of thumb, men tend to leave very little for their sons in the way of heirlooms. Women typically pass down all sorts of jewelry or fancy dress. My father left behind a harmonica, a Fatboy, a Slim, and a Fedora.

    Consider it a gift amongst gifts that you have something that belonged to a grandparent. Cherish it, and think of the history every time you pick it up and put it to your face.

    That Slim Adj. is a great Razor, you really have to search to find an equal in modern day razors.

    In my collection my Parker 98r is the most agressive razor, as for the others there less agressive but gave me good comfortable shave. My 98r is really heavy and had big blade exposure
