    What is your favorite Gillette NEW?

    This English version, Doc http://www.badgerandblade.com/vb/showthread.php?t=425320 Unfortunately I've never used one. But yeah ... the Deluxe is the best NEW. Everybody knows that ... [emoji6] [emoji106]

    Gillette Old Type Head?

    It's a 102A head (thick) no serial number, so 1921-'28. The handle is a Fat Tech handle, a mismatch but better than the original ball end handle IMO. Congrats! [emoji106]

    Schick Type O is Being Produced Again

    You can post a link as long as it isn't a live auction. BINs are fine.

    What is your favorite Gillette NEW?

    Yes, they're all great. My first NEW was a British FB and I still love it, even though I like the more aggressive versions such as the Deluxe a bit better. [emoji106]

    What is your favorite Gillette NEW?

    Should be, but IME it isn't. The English version is slightly smoother, and the American is slightly more efficient. I prefer the latter, but keep in mind that this is just my opinion based on the examples I've used. YMMV.

    Thin Cap Old Type Clone - Vites DE

    The original patents expired in 1921, he couldn't do anything about it. That's why they had to introduce the New Improved Gillette Razor, supposedly better than its predecessor and all the clones. [emoji2]

    Thin Cap Old Type Clone - Vites DE

    Definitely a French Single Ring clone, and I'm pretty sure it was originally a 3-piece razor just like a Gillette Single Ring. Congrats, nice score, Lane! [emoji106]

    Rare Gillette

    The sets I linked above were made in Germany, but I believe these were also made in England.
