    It sounds like a frankenrazor: someone combined parts from a couple of different razors. Anyway, let's fix those links:

    I have heard that it is not uncommon to find mixed sets for this period.
    This set below I believe is such.
    Are your Gillette Diamond and Made in England below the slots (like mine) or above?

    It looks like ours are somewhat similar. I have smooth corners and Gillette / Made in England are below the slots but the thread length is the same as the rest of my English Techs.

    Just a thought here, remember, that Britain was suffering from the results of the War. As with other industries i.e. motor cycles, cars etc they often used what was available at the time, so it would not be that uncommon to get variants as the country returned to peace time production.
