"Have a couple of the Newer Tech Heads, and one with the Ball End Handle like you have there.
The older ones with the slots are hard to find in my opinion. If you find them in cases and in like new condition, you'll see them at quite a…"
"Awesome, thanks for the info. I have some other photos of it. That was before I cleaned it some. I didn't want to scrub to hard since some of the finish is coming off. I have shaved with it though. It seems to do a…"

As to my drinks of choice though, I will, more often…"
"My guess is Washington has higher taxes that even out the labor costs. On the Cal/Ore border, it's about equal, too. A bit lower in Cal. Of course, in my neighborhood, gas prices can vary by 20% from corner to corner, so…"
