Is there a way to tell the approximate age of a gillette tech based on the handle? I see some techs that have smooth 'fat' handles and some that have gnurled skinner handles with a ball on the end and then i see some that look like they have some sort of 'lever' action on the end.

Which is what? I see one on ebay, but im afraid to bid on it because it will be 10 bucks or more with shipping, and i don't know its age.

The one im looking at actually has 'gillette' and the diamond etched into the head.

Well, I know the fat handles were being made in the late 40s and early 50s. I've never had one of the skinny ones, but the fat ones are nice. I have a '51.
