I have been shaving with a safety razor for four months, since I discovered the Wilkinson classic in a drugstore. Well, things came as they usually come: I bougth the Merkur HD, then a vintage Gillette Tech, then a 1940`s superspeed, a 1950`s superspeed (just to see if there is a difference...), a Gillette aristocrat and now I am considering to buy a Gillette superspeed red tip because I like heavy razors.
Well, once I discovered my interest in the art of using a safety razor, I asked my grandmother wether she still has some razors from my grandfather. She gave me two razors, one is the razor below.
What is it? I cannot claim that I know much about gillette razors, but I have not seen such a razor since I am browsing e-bay. (I am from Germany, so I use E-bay Germany). You cannot see it so well, but it is a three piece razor. It seems to have the rhombic Gillette logo on it, but it is not clearly recognizable as the metal is quite weathered. There is no date-code, but "Made in USA" is written in the lower right corner of the head, like the other Gillette-razors have it. So what do you think? Some kind of Tech-Model? But with an open comb?
I would be really grateful if one of you could give me some clues.
