View Full Version : Two Gillettes
02-23-2008, 06:44 PM
Well I got these today at an antique store.
I think the smaller one is a 1967 Gillette tech (has m-2 coding)
and the one with the design on the handle is a 1942 Gillette Tech (m-3 coding), not really sure.
Any thoughts on what they could be?
or Hows the shave?
The Travel Tech should be the milder of the two. I really like the shave I get with a Tech. They are so mild you can use a more aggressive blade. When I run out of my stash of Crystals, I'm going to search for something sharper.

Thanks for the info.
I've held the travel tech as sort of a "fake shave" and it seems like it'd maneuver quite well. I think when I shave tomorrow I'm going to give it a try.

The other should say "made in England" somewhere. These came with lightweight aluminum or heavy brass handles, yours looks like the latter.

the larger one says made in england ontop of the piece that has the code.
So I'm guessing that both are what I think they are.
