tonyespo said:I have emailed Gillette and even sent a picture of the 195 and asked about it and they never replied. I also asked about the D-1 Toggle and sent a picture of it with the date code stamped in it and again no reply from Gillette. It's interesting that they made razors that made it to the market but Gillette won't admit they made them or give any history of them.
NMMB said:I don't doubt that Gillette has "crap customer service", as you so succinctly put it, but to be fair (and no, I don't know why I would want to be fair to Gilette) how many companies do you suppose spend much time with customer service/questions for products that they stopped producing a half of a century ago (or longer in the case of some of these DEs)?

Jonnybc said:True but I think Gillette would prefer we DE shavers stayed on the fringes. They're altogether more interested in marketing the next X blade razor so the stock holders get a return on their investment, Having a historic razors dept will only cost money.
jfm said:That is true, unless Gillette (now P&G I guess) figures out that they can start selling FatBoy Mach 1's for crazy sums of cash!
