    i have 2 rolls razors that cost me in total 12 gbp both of them give very smooth shaves and i enjoy using them as much as i do my straights.

    there very nice razors and seem to last forever.

    Just got married on saturday and gave all my groomsmen (5) a Rolls Razor. I replaced all the strops with custom cut bridle leather and honed them all on my Coticule. They all looked very confused as I explained all this to them! lol

    They are all over eBay. The last couple I picked up in antique shops. Think i gave 20 for one that looked new in box, had the directions and a sales slip.

    How'd I ever miss this thread. I have two Rolls. One is spares, and the other was a kind gift from a friend and member of this forum, Kalgoorlieboi. I like the shave I get from mine, but I don't use it as often as I should. Might have to correct that oversight.

    I generally pick them up at antique stores for 10-30 depending on model and condition. I also like to swap out the usless strop for bridle leather.

    I got mine yesterday, is in great condition, the stone is good, and only 1 nick in the strop. Does anyone have a good writeup on changing that?

    Also, is there anyone that can re-hone the blade? It's pretty dull but well worth fixing IMHO

    If you can hone a cutthroat razor and have the stones, you can re-hone the Rolls blade. If you're located in Australia, I'll give it a go for you if you like. I hone my own to my own satisfaction.
