    I had wondered about that!
    Look at the Movember auctions in the BST!
    Buy and/or sell for a good cause!

    While you can't control what happened to the razor before you get it, you can take preventative measures once you own one. You can get some tuf-glide or similar under the rubber and/or totally seal the rubber to the tang (if you have faith that it's dry and stable under already).

    MrSell63,

    I did exactly what Holli has suggested with my Berg Lowe. I gave the area a good rub with the Marine Tuf Cloth, let it dry and slid the rubber back.

    It has been fine for the last two (2) years, though I do check it after every shave to make sure no water has sneaked under there !

    Have fun !

    Best regards

    Russ

    That "condom" is a nightmare just lurking & ready to pounce...even on Puma's. I trashed mine & have never looked back...
