The only razor I have ever damaged during a disassembly is a Wizamet 11, given to me by golenia_pl. I've never harmed any Gillettes however. This is largely due to the information that has been provided to the community long before I joined.How many, if any, have you broken? Any trial and error curve here? I only have one of each.
