    come on gentlemen step right up, step right up. A troubling situation has arrived in the razor club and that is the use of thumbnail pictures. I know that some of you old timers still remember when the razor clubs were a thing of beauty! with large glossy pictures of razors and we viewed until our hearts content. but those days are through it would seem. I beseech all the members of the razor clubs to take the poll in the general section and vote to restore large pictures to our beloved razor clubs. It is up to us gent and together we can restore these clubs to there former glory!!!!!!

    I realize that most of the Spanish action has occurred on the Filly thread. I got this Iberia off Ebay and it is on it's way.

    The box says "Fabricado por Bassat", which is a Barcelona based cutlery maker. I fount a mention of it in a 1969 design journal.

    The Spanish Society of Industrial Design, ADI/FAD, has awarded its prizes for 1968. Three products earned the Delta de Oro. A support base for a table produced by Gres and designed by Miguel Mila Sagnier, below; a razor produced by Industrias Bassat SA and designed by Esteban Agullo and Alvaro Martinez-Costa; and the Barcelona ashtray produced by Flamegas SA and designed by Andre Ricard. The Delta de Plata went to two products: the Cola 247 motorbicycle produced by Permanyer Montesa and designed by Leopoldo Mila Sagnier; and the A-722 lamp produced by Maenfra Tramo and designed by Juan Antonio Blanc Armengol.
    It leaves me with the question - Who fabricado'd this for Bassat?

    I think the fact that I don't understand Spanish is causing me problems here.

    I do have this written by a seller on Ebay who has been selling a lot of NOS Filarmonica's:

    History: The industrialist Jose Bassat, very known in the average Spanish industrialists and the world of the businesses by his leaves of shaving Fiqomatic, had been born in Sofia (Bulgaria), and arrived at Spain in 1930, where she created, very shortly after, the company more well-known Bassat S.A. like "Hojas Iberia". The company was created in Barcelona. Later, after achieving an important commercial success, he founded diverse filial and next companies, some of which they had soothes in France, Western Germany, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Canada and Brazil. Jose Bassat died at the age of 72 years the 30 of October of 1984 in the city of Barcelona.

    I have had a chance to use my 5/8 Iberia for a while now. I like the way it shaves. Now, I keep it ready every time I am testing a new razor and switch to it if the new razor doesn't measure up.
