Stumbled across this sight in search of information on what I now know to be a Gillette 501 special set that I found at an antique store. I knew instantly that I would love to add this to my small collection of odds and ends that drives my wife nuts. Little did I know that this is likely still very usable after a new blade and a bit of cleanup. I will be doing a lot of reading in the upcoming weeks and hope to get a nice shave once I feel brave enough. I have always stuck to electric razors in the past, due to irritations from modern cartridge razors and the like, but it appears from what I have read thus far that this little antique could be the solution.
I just may have found a new obsession
Thank you in advance for your help and knowledge!
