    I made lather in both and it works great, not much more to say about them. I like them better then the Turkish ones because of the weight. Very happy with my acquisition :)

    I am looking the turkish ones on ebay, but it is difficult to decide how thin/lightweight they are!?

    Visconti Opera Master Demonstrator, "F" nib, Platinum 950 metal finish.

    That was the Visconti, the below are the other three:

    - Waterman gold-plated, vintage (pre-owned), ball pen. Refills are discontinued but it takes Cartier ones, so we're sorted (albeit at €10 each).
    - Marlen fountain pen, 925 solid silver cap, "F" nib, pre-owned.
    - Pelikan ball pen, new, contemporary series.

    My new Zenith 507 TS synthetic from Yourshaving.com. A surprise sample of Yourshaving's LE Tabula Rasa cream 'August' was included. Nice touch.

    Received this as-new Sir Kenneth Grange designed Courier electric razor in the mail and it is stunning in design and condition :)

    It came with the rare outer hard-shell as well. Couldn't be happier.

    Even put it to use today and even though it's not capable of giving you a shave as close as you might get when wetshaving with your razor of choice - it was really fun to use and did a really decent job.
