If you look on a derby brand blade it has the numbers 1,2,3 and 4 on the four sides of the blades for rotation.

Well here it is gentlemen my purchase arrived today and tonight I will take my first plunge into this scary moment. Fingers crossed up here is what I got.

Nice! I ordered from menessentials too. Let me know how you like that soap.

I ended up buying some stuff last night from Fendrihan out of Oakville as there were a few things that ME didn't have that I wanted to put in my kit - namely an alum block and styptic pencils, but I picked up a few soaps as well.

To op who asked about blade rotation. I throw em away after a week. Can it be flipped over and another few shaves. Yes. But they're cheap enough that I just grab another one.

I don't mess with blade rotation either. When I start to feel a little tugging or pulling. I toss it for a new blade.

A new razor for the humble collection
Another one? Someone has been bitten hard by the bug!
Yeah the wife's going to get angry... There's no humidor to hide them in lol
Take a drawer in your bathroom and fill it with porn. She will get mad once when she sees it but then will never open the drawer again. You can now keep lots of shaving gear in there and she will never notice.

The bonus? If she does look in your drawer o'porn and sees a razor, she will be significantly creeped out that she probably will just slam the door shut and wonde what the hell you're up to.

Thank you for this. I laughed my ass off. The wife thought it was hilarious too.

On my list to acquire are

iKon OSS Bulldog
Weber Bulldog

I really like the Dreadnaught/Bluebeards Revenge, but it's basically a re-branded DE8* at twice the cost :(
