    First shave with a slant, but not just any slant! This is THE prototype created by one of our more 'illustrious' members back in 2007 by mating the long, heavy handle from a 138C to a slant head using parts directly from Mercur. Seems the idea was so popular, production of the beast was begun from the factory. Great, comfy shave!
    Look at the Movember auctions in the BST!
    Buy and/or sell for a good cause!

I would like to be able to pass this tradition on to my son or son-in-law. He passed away 43 years ago at the age of 51.
    A week later I was in Marine Corps boot camp wondering what I'd got myself into, lol. Have a good one.
    Your Dad deserves remembrance on this day ... and to have the remembrance passed along to future generations.

    Thanks for posting his story.

    Thanks Frank. It is greenish/purpleish. It is a great face lather brush. Not sure what the material is but I know Pixel uses is on occasion.
