Sadly I have given in to my own RAD and am waiting on a Merkur 37c "slant bar", maybe this will be "the ONE" for me ;)
a big +1 on the blade sampler suggestion, this is a hardware category where *everyone's* mileage varies!
...and make sure to toss the canned goo, a DE razor with the right blade is only half the story, IMO a brush and real shaving soap are mandatory for great shaves.
21 and under, TOFLAC-U, BOTOC, LEMS, BOTSS ...Can Grappa be used as aftershave?
Welcome to B&B.
If you are set on a non-nickel adjustable TTO then and uncased Executive or Aristocrat would cover those specs and are not that hard to come by as others have said.
But to get the most bang for your buck, you may wish to explore the Milord razor. I gives most or at least many who try one a great shave.
Any of these three are easy to resell if someday you find your dream razor to be a different flavor.
Enjoy the journey.
If you use pressure below the jaw line, "You might be a redneck."
The other gold adjustable that comes to mind is a Merkur Progress. They can be found used on ebay or new from online or local retailers.

Welcome to B&B.
IMHO gillette NEW. Also slim/super adjustables are good.. There are more experienced members here who can say more..
Well if you don't want nickel;
1. Any gold finish New
2. Black handle superspeed.
3. How about a vintage Gillette re-plated in rhodium or gold?
Welcome to this wonderful forum, and I'm happy & willing to help get you started.
