    As part of my 'lending library' I'm offering a British Made Ever-Ready 1912 SE razor.

    I'll include GEM blades and some ready made shims. I'll also include some grub screws, so you can try the head on a different, modern handle.

    The grub screws have two ends, one has a hexagonal opening (see the grub screw on the right), the other end doesn't. I strongly advise you to insert the end with the hexagonal hole into the head, not the handle. You might not be able to remove the grub screw from the handle otherwise. Just saying. Don't blame me.
    Normal pass around rules apply: The razor is your responsibility from the moment you receive it until the next person receives it. You break it, you buy it. Make sure it is thoroughly clean and shave ready when you pass it on or return it to me. Use at least ‘signed for’ delivery. Enjoy the shave and let us know what you think.
    Postage: TBC - probably £3.95
    If you're interested, post in this thread or send a PM to @sɐǝɹpu∀.

    Won't ask to be included in this as I've already got two 1912s at home, but a lovely gesture and for those of you that haven't tried it... Give it a go! It may just change your life...

    Yes please @sɐǝɹpu∀.

    Predicatable, aren't I? BTW, that handle is gorgeous? Where'd you get that?

    Predictable? With that user name? Hardly.
    Just PM me your address and I'll get the razor to you shortly.
    The handle came with the razor (from an antiques market).. yeah.. it's quite nice. Makes a change from the chainlink one I see most, although that's a nice handle as well. Personally I use a 96mm stainless steel handle (with grub screw). Vaguely similar...

    The handle that you show attached to the 1912,is the chrome plated one , that is fitted to Ever Ready Streamline/ Jewel razors.
