  3. It sounds like a frankenrazor: someone combined parts from a couple of different razors. Anyway, let's fix those links:


  4. I have heard that it is not uncommon to find mixed sets for this period.
    This set below I believe is such.
    Are your Gillette Diamond and Made in England below the slots (like mine) or above?

  5. below ill get a few pics in soon does your cap have the corners or none mine has none

    the threads are longer and mine is just like yours
  6. It looks like ours are somewhat similar. I have smooth corners and Gillette / Made in England are below the slots but the thread length is the same as the rest of my English Techs.

  7. are these a very early production tech or a rarity ide like to know
  8. i need more than this please how about when manufactured
  9. You need?
  10. Just a thought here, remember, that Britain was suffering from the results of the War. As with other industries i.e. motor cycles, cars etc they often used what was available at the time, so it would not be that uncommon to get variants as the country returned to peace time production.
