I do not usually buy uncased razors for a few reasons one of which is since "display" space is limited it is easier to store them in their case. Being the way I am though, things must match, so each razor must have one of the cases it actually would have come in when originally produced. This has now led to me buying cases that after further research are not correct which leads to other issues, you get the drift.
This has happened with the nickle silver New with the common bar handle I purchased, uncased from a fellow forumite not too long ago. In my search I wound up with a nice red Gillette case that after further research is for the gold ball-end razor in the Federal set and besides, the New I have does not fit in it.
Does anyone one else do this?
