Glenn, Upon further inspection of a group of razors I bought today, I realized that I may have misidentified one of them as an early Supepr Speed. It is TTO and has the comb with doors that close flush. Guess I snagged a Regent Tech too. Now...I need exact details on how you got it to looks sooooo g...

That work rivals what Chip Foose at Overhaulin' does with Old Cars! Excellent and a testament to what can be done by buying UGLY either online or from other sources. Inspiring indeed!

Thanks for the response Rob. I used the scrubbing bubbles on the 2 contemporary razors. The Schick looks awesome. The Gillette Techmatic is clean but ugly as H&*#@! I don't know why I even bought it.

CigarDan, Thanks for your response. There is gold plating on the one on the right that has faded with use and age. The other forums B&B someone said it appeared to be a Milord.

Thanks

Confirm my suspicisions on Vintage Gillette DE Razors ID

I need a little help on proper ID on two Antique Store Gillette DE Razor finds today. I'm thinking the one on the left is a vintage Super Speed and the one on the right may be a Gillette Milord? Any confirmations? Thanks in advance.

Since being a newbie who procurred alot of old Gillettes in the past 10 days, I tried the Slim Adjustable which I thought I liked until I used the Fatboy ( for the last 5 shaves). I wouldn't change now as I am perfecting the use of the razor daily. I figure by October of 2012 I should have it down p...

Rocky,

I think Tim has offered an excellent suggestion with that eBay auction. The razors are not spectacular but would fill your need rather well. A bid for at least the $1.99 would be worth a whirl In My Opinion.

Pawel, I agree that the most fascinating thread would be one that someone could authenticate a razor or various shaving tools that had once been owned by a celebrity. Recent high profile auctions of Johnny Cash, Katherine Hepburn, and Jackie Onassis are the types of auction records that should be se...

Clive, Funny you should mention the Durham Duplex. I found this one yesterday at a "house call". From my research, mine is probably average at best as the Safety Razor variety. I understand that the one I found takes the same blades, rather longgggggg ones. http://upload5.postimage.org/110985/durham...

Careful using Google typing Shaving in the Movies, you'll find some not safe for work sites. :? The Blandings Cary Grant scene is superb (as is Ms. Loy) but I prefer the scene in North By Northwest where he shaves in the Train Depot lavatory with Eva Marie Saint's Little Travel Razor.
