    The Gold Krona did come in the '77 Bicentennial set.

    There is no mention of them being gold plated from what I can surmise. They are gold colored. Whatever that means.

    I have one and it's gorgeous, I have another in a set. Excellent score!!

    Enjoy them! Two great shavers there!

    cooncat bob at Bob's Razor Works just made this handle for me for my old GEM Zinn lather catcher head and replated the head. Fantastic shaver, and quite pretty in my opinion... thanks, Bob!

    Sorry if I violated a "The Score" thread protocol when I posted on a new thread. Then I saw the "Acquisitions for April 2012" thread.

    I just scored on a vintage Gillette men's vanity set. I have been looking for something with more than the micro handle Travel Tech and wanted a kit with a mirror, etc. Can anyone tell me what style and period Tech this set has or any other history on where they made these? Perhaps someone in the UK can identify? What would that thin brush be used for? Any insights would be appreciated! Thanks.


    Any ideas/comments on this?

    Lunawerk Slant.

    Whole head dismantles.
    Looks so much nicer in person. So minty......
    I can't wait to give it a spin on a different handle.

    I just got a few things in the mail, including this cute looking shaving mug. But the thing I wanted most in the lot was the 1940's vintage Australian Palmolive stick. This is my second one, and they are about the best lathering soap I have ever used. Extra tallowy goodness.

    That handle looks nice, I bet it is comfortable to grip while shaving.

    Yes, it is quite heavy and very comfortable grip... it's heavy enough that you can just let it slide down your face without any pressure. Bob out-did himself :)

    Nice job on the polish. That Gold Krona looks awesome. vae to keep a look out for one to break up the chrome monotony in the den.

    Another slant.....

    The world looks diagonal when you have a slanted view.

    Anyone know how old these are? I think I got one of three or four that looked similar.

    I just won my first Fatboy on the bay!
    I'll try the Fatboy out against my Slim and determine which one of the two adjustables will stay in my den, and I'll sell the other. Also I'll probably throw my Merkur HD into a starter kit with some RazoRock Cacao
