English made Knack question

Is the Gillette Knack made in England called a Knack? Seems like I read it was called by a different name.

There is no date code on the razor. Handle is blue. Says "Gillette" on one side of the handle and "England" on the other; it came with case, etc., as pictured.

I think it was called the "Slim Twist". I'm not positive but I'm sure someone around here is.

Slim Twist sounds right to me.

Gillette's last TTO double edge razor sold in the USA was made in England, and was called a "Double Edge" on the package. It had a much smaller twist knob than the Knack or Slim Twist.

I've got one of these razors in a box along with its original packaging and it was marketed as a 'super slimtwist'.
It shaves very nicely even though it doesn't feel quite as well made as the earlier generation of razors.
The original slimtwist had a different kind of plastic handle in white, cream or black.
