    Default Strange English Gillette Three Piece

    I got several razors a while back in a lot. They are three piece, made in england, with an aluminum handle. There is finally a clearly pictured one on Ebay, so I am taking the opportunity to ask what they are.

    What is this?

    Anybody know anything about these things?

    Pretty handle . . . Have you shaved with it, Mo? Looks a little bit like a Tech.

    Yea, the head definitely looks Tech-ish with the Gillette logo and the tiny comb ridges. Love the British Tech I have now. I might have to bid on a lot -- should keep me set with razors for the rest of my life.

    Markings look like Gov't contract numbers and specifications --possibly military issue and now military surplus?
