    Default J.A. Henckels Rapide

    I recently picked this set up from a member at B&B, traded for. The girl is in near mint condition, and just amazing!

    Unfortunately... She has been sitting on the cupboard getting lonely because I have not yet acquired an Allegro Model E with which to sharpen the blades up...

    The good news is... I think I may be in luck as I just may have found what I have been looking for

    Here are some pics:

    Congrats on a nice Razor! Nice pics also! Let us know hoe it shaves. CarrieM has a similar one that is posted under the Show and Tell forum under "A Genco day and more" nut we haven't shaved with it yet. Some day soon I hope.

    That my friend, is a beautiful razor. I haven't tried my hand at the SE yet, just straight and DE, but that really really makes me want to try.

    Default Valet Autostrop

    Just won one in A lot of Gillette's in an auction on E-Bay, (Valet) and have no idea what it is.I've seen them but don't have a clue what to do with it.It looked to be in great condition and in a case but thats about the extent of my knowledge on the hardware itself.Can anyone inform me on the particulars of the razor?Thanks in advance.

    I have one I just honed the razors and tried it out,and boy what a cool piece of history.Shaves like a dream.I used a stropping handle from a Kampfe Bros. Star razor to hone and strop the blades.Just won a auction on Ebay for a Gem wedge razor stropping handle.These razors live up to the Henckels rep.I included a couple of pics of when I got it from the antique shop.It has been cleaned up and looks very nice now and shaves excellent.If you have one its a keeper.
