There was a period when Gillette made wooden cases for their best razors. The Richwood and Big Fellow appeared in the 2nd decade of the 20th century. Doubt we'll find such beauties these days. When the wood is cared for, it seems like it may last another 100 years. This one is my newest addition to the collection. A fairly aggressive shaver with considerable heft. Not sure about this razor model. Anyone know for sure? British made. They look as good as new. I acknowledge those early owners who had the foresight to preserve their razors with such care. And the manufacturer for creating such a useful and impressive tool that survived the past century so well.
