Lilith's Domestic Tips #2

Elby recently purchased one of these things.

It is called a Razorpit and it keeps your disposable blades sharp for weeks and weeks. It really works.

That's interesting Lils, especially as foils for Remingtons cost about £25 and are pretty feeble.

Have you or Elbey seen one of
thesethen?

I've still got my dad's and had to get to this site to find out how the handle fitted!

I've only been wondering how the handle fitted for about 15 years...

Scrobs - that's a very neat and desirable piece of hardware, the Rolls Razor. Mind you, the rubber strop for new style blades is excellent - I am nearly a month into the second blade I have used it in, and the previous - the first to be stropped, as it were - lasted 6 weeks. Normally, I would change my blade on a weekly basis - so I'm not far off paying for it from savings already.

Elbers, I can'r get the handle to fix properly!

I'm devastated, because I should be able to work it out, but I can't!

Bugger!

Scrobbers, take it over to ED's place and show her the vid. She'll sort it for you I am sure!

I think I've cracked it Lils, I found some old instructions on t'net, and they showed the handle being fitted by sliding along the edge.

Mind you, I nearly cut off four fingers, and lacerated an elbow doing it...

I also shrieked in surprise at some stage, causing JRT to leap around excitedly, while I peered at my (actually clean and uncut), hand...

Elbers, that really does sound like a fantastic bit of kit!

I've learned more about wet razors in the past few dyas, than I ever did in a whole lifetime of blood, gauze, styptic and sections of lower lip, and I've been using various electric machines for years now...

They used to say that one should own seven cut-throat razors, and leave them stored pointing North/South, otherwise they became blunt...

...or was it East/West...

New Zealand AND Manchester City all in one weekend!

Don't blow the children's allowance on cheap plonk!

Blimey Beast, at 131 notes, it'd take several trips to the bank to buy one of those...

Didn't know about the finger nail test either!

I was relieved Nomad, I can tell you. We had two Irish Coffees apiece to celebrate :-) Imagine if France had won? The frustration and the SHAME. Elby keeps saying "6-1" and "massacre" randomly.

How often do your razors need sharpening then, Lilith ???

Love to you, Elby, Calfy 'n' pups ...

and that lad who plays great guitar too !

Happy Christmas !
