    What is your oldest vintage Gillette razor?

    My oldest is a 03/04 "PAT.APL'D.FOR" Double Ring with the split knob. I only use it a few times a year but it always gives me a great shave. My favorite is a 1918 Bulldog, I use it and a Barbasol pretty much exclusively now. It was tarnished and covered in soap scum when I first got it...

    You should, I pushed them out of the way to get to the DEs for about 3 years. I finally gave in and bought one. Be warned though, they're just like Lay's potato chips, you can't have just one. :a29:

    I thought you would be used to driving on the wrong side of the road by now, and upside down. :001_302:

    Ha, sure if you'll do some of the driving. I just spent 4 hrs getting through Denver, a rock slide on the west side and a car wreck on the east side. So far I've been on the road for 13 hours and I plan on driving another 4.

    We were going to head back home this morning but my wife wanted to stay another day. I'm glad we stayed because I found a few more. Another ERN. Is this considered a 1720 or a crown and sword? W.R. Case and Son. Joseph Rodgers and Sons, Cutlers to His Majesty with a Spanish point...

    We got up this morning and everyone wanted to go in to town and check out some local antique shops. After twisting my arm, I gave and went with them. :001_rolle I can't believe how many razors there are around here, every shop we went in had at least one display case with no less than 20...

    Thanks. I'm not sure what the seller was thinking, he had a large Sheffield with horn scales for $250 and others with similar prices. This set was market $40 but the older gentleman showing it to me said he would knock 20% off so I got it for about $35 out the door. He also said he would take...

    Wow, that's about twice as far as our trip. The driving's not as bad as you think it would be when you break it up with something you enjoy.

    Well actually, we took a vacation to see our son that we haven't seen for about 3 years. We were going to fly but my wife suggested driving so we could check out some new antique shops on the way. It was only 1300 miles, so why not. I was surprised at how many razors I saw, a lot more than...
