View Full Version : Gillette Travel Razor

I went away for a few days late last week and brought along my Gillette travel razor to use for the first time. It's nothing less than a Tech with a very short ball-end handle. Loaded with a vintage UK Wilkinson it gave me absolutely great shaves. I wouldn't want to use it in the regular rotation because the handle is uncomfortably short, but for temporary use when traveling, or just as an amusing diversion at home, it gives a helluva shave.

I have one and it is to mild for my beard. I load it with a personna and I find that I have to do 4+ passes. It would probably shave great with a feather.

I have the long handled Tech and it is used solely for travelling - a passable shave while I'm away. The Fat Boy and Super Speeds stay home!

I have a Tuckaway in the nice, flat, brass case. Could easily carry it in my shirt pocket. Now, If I could find one of the lipstick-style brushes, I would be good to go.
