    Default Old vs. New vs. New Improved, etc....

    I got a razor today and I can't figure out what I got. I know... I should just post a picture, but I don't have my camera handy.

    I did a search, and could not find any info. It seems that "old" and "new" are words that are too common to search.

    So my razor has a ball end, no ridge, teeth, but the end teeth are wider. I was thinking that meant "new improved" but the handle is knurled, not fancy.

    So if someone has better searching skills then me, I'd love to figure out what I got. Thanks!

    You are only lost if you give up on yourself.

    It sounds a bit like an Old Type. Is this it: http://wiki.badgerandblade.com/index...e_Ball_End.jpg .

    That's it Brian! Except mine looks really old. I'm a user, not a collector, so it's really looks cool to me. (sorry for the big ugly picture... I'll make it smaller).

    It doesn't have a serial number or code that I can see. Do you know when it was made?

    With no serial numbers on the head, might it not be a New Improved???

    If there is no SN inside the head, he was made from 1921-1928

    Thanks!

    BTW, it shaves great. I'm really impressed with it. :)
