    Default Fully complete rolls razor

    Bought this on the bay a few days ago. I've been very interested by the rolls since had first seen one on here, and now I've found one at a very good price. This set is complete, has the original box the pouch all the pieces of the case in great shape, it even had the instructions. I couldn't get home from work fast enough so I could open it up.

    Nice set!
    I've never seen the pouch before.

    I've got nearly a dozen that are for the next generation in my family, and I've never seen that pouch before either.

    The Rolls Razor is a brilliant design.

    Years ago I was working on what I thought was a brilliant design for something to be used like a safety razor but with a blade more like a straight razor. It would make use of the best of both and could be sharpened. I was going to change the world of shaving!

    I was, that is, until I saw my first Rolls Razor.

    A perfect idea for using up the broken blades we all have. [emoji56]

    That is the best-looking Rolls I've ever seen-Congrats! I have one, but not nearly as nice or complete. They are fun to play with and shave on, and you can take the blade out for honing as necessary on your stones if you have them.

    I was really looking at how the mechanics of it work. It's an amazing piece of engineering, how it flips itself and the guard hits first then the blade lightly hits the stone or strop.

    LIGHTLY is the key. I have seen that some people have a tendency to go fast, causing the blade to slap down hard.

    Never seen the pouch before either, looks mint. They are an ingenious piece of kit.
