Always wanted to try a Gillette New? Live outside the CONUS, where it's harder to find one in an antique shop or on eBay? Then read on.
I bought this razor very cheap awhile back because I wanted to try a New...I liked it so much I ordered a New with a Bull Mastiff handle from Cooncat Bob. And so this razor needs to continue its journey.
only 3 requirements:
--Live outside the CONUS
--Haven't tried a Gillette New
--Promise to PIF it onward if you either don't like it or replace it with one in better condition.
The razor is a ball-handle long comb. It's user-grade, with worn plating, a bent tooth and the usual cracked handle (the epoxy has held as long as I've had it, but no guarantees) But it still shaves just fine, and will let you know if the New is for you.
BTW, nothing against the CONUS, but it's much easier to find these really cheap there. I want to send this on to someone who wants to try one, but not pay ridiculous eBay prices and shipping charges.
It will be sent regular parcel post because of the costs of insurance or tracking.
Winner will be randomly chosen Saturday the 22nd Japan time (SOMETIME Saturday, I have a 1-year-old)
Just post in this thread and let me know you're interested.
Pics were taken on a gray winter afternoon near a window...it's actually clean and relatively shiny and looks nicer in person.
