Hi All
I have in my possession a Rolls Razor
Which I would like to pass on the problem is I’ve no idea of the value it comes complete with 3 handles and 3 heads it’s in very good condition obviously if there was any interest I would provide photos It does have the original box ( that’s showing it’s age!!) plus all instructions
I must have had it for over 40 years
Anyway if anyone can advise me I would be very grateful
I hope that I’m not breaking any forum rules by this inquiry
Many thanks

Hi there, if everything is perfect , stone, strop pad, blade etc you may be able to get as much as £20.00 but you will need to set you sights lower if anything is less than perfect. On EBay the average price is £10.00 but these sets are never perfect and nine times out of ten the blade will need to be honed on a set of stones to get it into a shave ready condition.
I hope with this infomation you will be able to put a realistic price on it. :) P.

Edit, I sold a Viscount model a short time ago for £25.00 (Delivered) but I have to say it was very good condition indeed with the stone and Pad as it should be and the blade as factory fresh after being honed by @Fergiebilly, who done a top job on getting my blades right.
I have four more sets, all in tip top condition but I'm going to be holding on to these because they are really good razors and hard to find in such good condition. :) P.

Does anyone know if the Rolls razors were popular in their day as they seem quite easily available in charity shops. I bought one the other day and there were two more in the same shop. Just a case of pick the best of the three.

Just curiosity

I'm sure they were very popular judging by the number of models produced and the huge availability of them now although a few of the sets I've got look like they were bought and used a couple of times and then put in a draw because they didn't have EBay back then to offload them! :)

Hi everyone, I had an issue trying to separate a Rolls handle expecting it to come apart in the middle. After a WD40 bath and some gentle persuasion the blade holder moved and revealed a thread, in the top of the handle is a "sprung ball-bearing" which after a bit work has also been freed up.
I now have a working handle however does anyone have any info on this model?
Cheers.

There are three types of handle, one separates in the middle, one is telescopic and you have the other one! I had no idea that the top was threaded though so I have learned someting new today! P.
