Sorry to burst your bubble but the guy that supposedly bought the company and now lives in Arizona or some such place. He has no email and no company information. I do not think the site has been updated in some time and my emails to site owner have gone unanswered.
Rolls Razors are no longer made and parts are hard to come by.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that the Donofrio/Casswell Massey/Rolls Razor conection has been defunct for about eight years now.
The only way to get a Rolls is through antique stores, ebay and the like.
if anyboy else knows any different (such as just purchased a brand new Rolls Razor) please let me know. I would be interested.

You'll notice that the copywright noted at the bottom is "1999-2001"
I attempted to contact Mr. Donofrio a few years back and all attempts at communication failed. If I remember correctly (and anyone correct me if I'm wrong), Mr. Donofrio no longer offers these services. Unfortunately, I believe he has died, though I can't find any of the threads now to support that scrap of memory.
You may want to search the forums at B&B for more info. There's several guys over there that still use a Rolls and swear that they give a superlative shave.

I use a Rolls and I love it.
I remember reading something the guy died as well and all his stuff went to ebay for his estate sale. That was some years ago.
Rolls razors haven't been made for a long time. Even when Caswell Masey had the company all they did was replacement parts. At least that is my belief.

I love using mine, as other folks on SRP and B&B will tell you, this is the closest shave you could get to a str8 without using a str8.

Don't worry, there are thousands of them around. The company did some really big marketing at Christmas time up till the 1960's.
I think just about every Dad got one at some time.
I've got two, they work really well.
I think with all this talk of ending the throw away society, they will re-appear.
You heard it here first
