I've been lurking about this forum for a couple of months - absorbing all kinds of information and advice as I made my way back into DE shaving.
I had been a DE shaver until my trusty super adjustable (purchased new in the early 70's) finally died almost 10 years ago.
I was unable to find a replacement at that time and over the past 10 years have tried a Mach 3, Fusion and an endless succession of disposables.
After finding this site and absorbing tons of info - I started keeping an eye on eBay. It was a shock to see the prices that many vintage Gillettes were going for, but I finally found a good deal and a couple of days ago I received my '65 Tech with a plated handle (instead of the more prevalent aluminum).
I am using Wilkinson blades that are available locally, but have a sampler pack on the way.
So thanks for all the advice and help - choosing and cleaning a vintage razor, the blade reviews that helped me determine what sampler pack to order, and a myriad of other tips and info that I have picked up.
