I am amassing my shave den. I already have a new Merkur 178 (34C HD) on the way to start my DE training. And yet I still have this awful urge to pick up a Gillette Tech. They just look so mild and the head looks like it will be easy to maneuver with in tight spaces (under nose)... RAD without ever trying DE shaving?? Maybe...
I keep hearing everyone finding great deals, but every good condition ball tip Tech I've bid on (on the bay) has went for like 20 dollars or more!
I tried a local antique shop - all he had was a few dusty/nasty looking brushes, a cracked shave mug looking thing and a rusty (or just tarnished) straight in a thin black box... I could not even read the brand because shopkeep was the nervous type and asked me to put it away because it made him "nervous"
So what are your opinions? Should I just wait and try the Merkur first and decide afterwards or keep my eye out for a nice cond. Tech?
