    Cannot wait to shave with it. Super Speeds are my favorite, and I'm just starting a collection of them. This and my Black Handle is the beginning.
    Lovely.

    For whatever reason I cant see the pics?!?!
    Flare Tip Superspeeds are fine shavers and I also like the aesthetic look of them as well. I think you may happen to have the last production year for that razor as well.
    FYI - I have every model super speed and it was quite the accomplishment when I buttoned up that collection in my DE stable. The only thing I do not have in my collection of them is I believe the blue tip had both a steel and aluminum handle depending, I only have the aluminum handle version.

    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost.

    Hopefully the pics come through, now. Thanks for the heads up, guys.
    JimmyWetshaver, that is my goal; to collect every type and model of Super Speed. We shall see.

    It will be fun for you accomplishing that, at least it has been for me.
    BTW I now see the pics and it looks like that one is in great condition! Nice pick up!
