Re: What Gillette do I have???

I am hoping the collective brain power of this group can shed some light on which razor I have. Like I said before, I picked it up in an antique shop one day a few months back when I decided to take the DE plunge. The only markings are as follows: PAT. NOS. ON PKG. Reg. US PAT. OFF.

Personna DE

For cost and convenience, they are a good deal. ($1.54 at Walmart.) I have compared them with Gillette stainless "the Spoiler" and stainless Wilkinson Sword. In order of preference: 1) "The Spoiler" ; 2) Wilkinson and 3) Personna. Any are still a better deal than Atra at $1.10 per cartridge!

NIVEA

I quit using high alcohol content aftershaves some time ago. Alcohol kills good skin cells and burns newly shaved skin! A few years ago I picked up a bottle of NIVEA ENERGY Revitalizing Fluid (aftershave) with castor oil, etc. It leaves the skin smooth and smelling fresh, without the burn. NIVEA als...
