    Gillette Rocket HD

    It's nice to see that our friends over the pond can spell "aluminium" correctly if they have too ....:lol: I have both the Gold and Paperclip Rocket sets and have tried shaving with both and like you I find they are too light and you can find yourself applying unneeded pressure during your...

    Gillette Rocket HD

    I have to admit I have owned and still own a number of English Rockets in various guises (HD,LD,Paperclip, #58 and F/T) and have never got on with any of them. Some I have parted with and some I keep just to look at. A very nice looking razor but not for me. I like the shaves that the flat plate...

    Gillette Tech- England

    As it was all sealed open the blade pack and check the date codes. I agree with edgar 50's / 60's crossover. Looks like it may have been made for a Grooming Kit.

    Does Ikon slant = Lutz?

    Is it just me that doesn't like the blade tabs to be covered I think it adds unnecessary bulk to the head. I have never nicked myself in many years of shaving with the tabs.........:001_huh: On the subject of the slants, I have a few that I use a lot inc both Mulcutos and find them to be superb...

    Another English Tech .

    I am with you on this one, the Long Slot Tech is harder to find but not rare. I also have a Hybrid Tech and a few others in my stash. I have a soft spot for these and the English "New" range they are very under rated razors and I hope they stay that way so the prices will stay low......:)

    Another English Tech .

    I found another one like it but it got lost in the post.......:angry: I should add I like English Techs and News and collect them when I find a different one...... this looks like another 40's Tech but it is slightly different ?

    razorock stealth

    I have one of the 1st releases of the Stealth, but I had to sit at my computer hitting shift R to get it plus I had it in the basket ready to go. So when they became available I just hit pay. I think I have one of a handful (?) that made it to the UK. I have just checked and I did a review on it...

    A new NEW thread. Name this NEW?

    If the case has no engine turning on it then you have the correct case for an #88 set. The razor came in 3 cases, a brown bakelite case, a green bakelite case and a plain metal case.
