I got a razor today and I can't figure out what I got. I know... I should just post a picture, but I don't have my camera handy.

I did a search, and could not find any info. It seems that "old" and "new" are words that are too common to search.

So my razor has a ball end, no ridge, teeth, but the end teeth are wider. I was thinking that meant "new improved" but the handle is knurled, not fancy.

So if someone has better searching skills then me, I'd love to figure out what I got. Thanks!

It sounds a bit like an Old Type. Is this it: http://wiki.badgerandblade.com/index.php/Image:Old_Type_Ball_End.jpg .

That's it Brian! Except mine looks really old. I'm a user, not a collector, so it's really looks cool to me. (sorry for the big ugly picture... I'll make it smaller).

It doesn't have a serial number or code that I can see. Do you know when it was made?

With no serial numbers on the head, might it not be a New Improved???

If there is no SN inside the head, he was made from 1921-1928

Thanks!

BTW, it shaves great. I'm really impressed with it. :)
