I have found the Gillette New Deluxe to be my favorite razor. More than any other razor it gives me spectacular, comfortable and blood free shaves with a BBS result. So I was watching an auction on that site by the bay for a razor that the seller may not have known what it was since he did not identify it as a New Deluxe. Anyway, I was perfectly poised to take it but was too impetuous and put in my bid just a couple seconds too soon. I was the winning bidder when submitted but I left the other guy enough time to quickly beat me by $1. Hopefully it went to one of the fine gentlemen here. But know this. I learned a very valuable lesson on that one. Next time I'll be ready.
