    NOS Gillette.... WOW!

    Not very good in the snow though. I did the Gillette slide with a set of these once. There were skidmarks on more than the road after that close shave. Cheers.

    I turned the fan off.

    The razor I get the best "accoustics" with is my Big Fellow. I don't know if it's the size of the handle or what, but that baby really sings. Cheers.

    Wow man. That screams "I am a beautiful razor" really loud. The case and blade holders look really nice too. Great score. Cheers.

    Awesome looking razor Chris. I have to get up at about 3:30 AM some mornings, and eBay is the first place I go. Looking for those new BINS as well, of course. Cheers.

    Sad days of SE shaving

    +1 on that mate. A Micromatic was included in an eBay auction I had won a few months ago, but it ain't for me. I've been thinking of doing a PIF on it so someone else could use it rather than collecting dust in a drawer. Cheers.

    Early Black Ball End Tech = Awesome

    I've been wanting a flute-handled Tech. I had bought one on eBay. It was the gold flute-handled that you spoke of. The auction included the box and was in exquisite condition. Trouble is the seller never sent it. Yes I won the case and got my money back, but I really wanted that one...

    What was your best suprise score from da 'Bay?

    Although it isn't earth-shattering, I did buy a Gillette store showcase, and the seller threw-in an empty shipper for a Silver Big Fellow. The shipper is in extremely good shape. Shippers are very rare in any kind of shape on eBay, and I suppose anywhere else for that matter. Now all I...

    What do I have here? A Milord??

    Don't you guys go to eBay? It's actually called a Milford. :lol: Cheers.

    What Gillette Razor goes with this SHIPPER?

    The real question is, is it the CORRECT razor inside. Let's hope so. I've seen so many mismatched cases over the years, I can't see shippers being any different if the seller is clueless. Unless the shipper has something like the one Achim shows for the Khaki set, you never really know...

    Mine is a different variant from Achim's. $14 from da Bay. As you can see the box has seen better days. I have never used it though. Cheers.

    Got It Bad And That Ain't Good

    You didn't throw it away did you? That thing might be worth something some day! Cheers.

    Antique Stores Drying Up?

    At least you have antique stores. The antique stores themselves have dried-up around here. They have been replaced by sprawling masses of look-alike houses in plans, strip malls, or grocery stores. Cheers.

    A LOT of firsts.....

    Good to see you here Triseven. Your razors look to be in pretty good condition actually, at least given the picture you provided. I can see your trepidation with the adjustable. But most new users simply start at the lowest setting and work their way up until they find what works for...

    That is an incredible watch Dave. Looks to be incredible condition for sure. Where on Earth did you find it? And how difficult it is going to be to find that guard? Cheers.

    How are DE blade manufacturers surviving?

    Don't you hate when someone takes your reply before you are done reading the thread? :lol: But hey, if it also gets rid of all the Walmarts and their ilk, I'm all for it. I really miss the small corner shops and the Ma & Pa stores that used to be around. Cheers.
