Best Gillette Tech

My preference is the Hybrid Tech, then a post-war plate on fat handle (made in UK or US).

My favorite is the British Hybrid Tech. ‘Best’ is ultimately quite subjective.

Another vote for the Gillette Tech/NEW Hybrid from England:

I like either a Charcoal Goods Copper Dimpled or one of the wonderful TiBam Titanium handles on my Hybrid.

The Gillette #34 Tech from Germany (here with an Evgeny Koshelev Ti Handle) and the Gillette Pre-War Tech from Canada (here with a Polished Timeless TRH8 Crown Handle) follow right behind:

The English Flat Bottom, Canadian Post-War, USA Pre- and Post-War and English #24 are also in my Tech Rotation. :)
 
My only tech was a '59 ball end bought off ebay some 12 years back. It was pristine. I don't think it had ever been used and it still had the "paper" blade in the razor. I used it a few times. It was a nice mild razor. When a brother-in-law in Ky wanted to try DE, I gave him the tech, soaps and a brush. I don't know if he still uses it, and don't ask.
 
Out of all the vintage Gillette Tech razors which do you consider
the best?
I like my old fat handled tech and one I have that's made in England equally well
Currently, (and NOS [till I got my hands on it]) my 1947 thin handle Flat Bottom Tech:

Now on its magical lightweight GT Handle (made by Doug @Rosseforp):
SOTD-1947-GT-Y_2021-12-07.jpg

it has become my all time favorite DE Razor (unless another unicorn turns up :blushing:).
 
How many different lengths did the Tech fat & thin handle come in? I have 3 Fat handle Techs and 2 thin handle Techs .. each have different length handles.
