    Well, the KK had some rust on it. I put up my whole junk box on BST and no takers.

    Oh, and the original box for the Bakonit was in pretty bad shape.

    I can confirm that a blade that wouldn't cut hair on my arm I brought back to cutting hair using the Kriss Kross stopper. I've not tried a shave experiment though....something I have in a long list of shaving related todo's. I'm keeping several old blades stored away to try this at some point.

    Jeff,

    I've never seen one of those. That is a nice razor!

    I've been holding on to a gold Gillette F4 toggle razor for 20+ years and had no clue what it was.
    Obviously I knew it was a razor but thanks to this forum I got more info on it.
    I should do spring cleaning more often.

    Oh man that toggle is sweet. I'm sure you'll be able to pry a pretty penny out of one of our hands.

    Not looking to make a killing on it.. To be honest I'm not even sure what I could get for it.

    Default A Vintage Gillete Travel Set from the UK

    Gents,

    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.

    That looks like one of the later aluminum Techs. No date code? How about on the blades?

    Yep, aluminium tech, probably late 60's. The brush would be a clothes brush.

    Yup. the 60's is probable correct. I have a couple of the UK travel cases similar to this. The handle is not as short as the standard travel tech but it's not as tall as the ball-end tech. They're great loaded with a feather.

    Thank you gentlemen! I haven't received it yet so I don't know about the date code, the seller didn't provide that either. I was drawn to it by the longer handle and more inclusive vanity items. I have one of those mini travel techs and haven't even tried it. The aluminum handle will be a new twist in my collection. I have been traveling with a fat-handle Tech but this kit might find its way into my travel gear.

    Does anyone know if the set is from the US or UK?
