I found this box while roaming the shelves of a local antiquestore:
Experience has taught me that one should always open small boxes found in places like antiquestore, as they often contain treasures forgotten about by even the owners of the store - so I did - this is what I found:
Two GEM SE's and a pack of GEM SE blades. The razor on the left is a Micromatic and is marked with patent no. 1739280-1773614 the right one has no numbers, but is marked Brooklyn, New York.
Both are in fair condition, with only minor scratches on both and i little brassing on the right one.
I paid D.Kr. 150 (approx. $ 25) for the lot. I have no idea if that was too much.
I know nothing about SE's. Are these good shavers? How old are they? Can you still find good blades for them? I use Derby Extras in my DE's. Can anyone reccommend a similar SE blade?
