NEW GILLETTE DE Razor

Welcome to B&B

Haven't seen that one yet. At least they take the mystery out of where it's made.

How did you find out about the release?
 
Agree, but this is great news for us DE fans. Gillette must be focusing on DE once again, which to me is promising news.
The king is back!!!!
 
A DE razor friend in USA sent me an Email. I'm from the UK and can't wait for it to land here.
 
Anything Gillette in the DE range will sell. It does look a nice razor. Granted it looks generic similar to the Heritage, but.... Anything Gillette launches in a DE means there is a market for them.
 
Modern Gillette cant redeem itself with some average looking Chinese made razor, not after their toe dipping into gross politics with that damn right offensive anti male advert of theirs.

Let the bearded women and effeminate male audience they're so eager to bend the knee for buy their tat. The gillette we all once knew is dead and this attempt at necromancy is just laughable!

Hostile much?

There is an anti-Gillette group in the clubs and brotherhoods subforum, just FYI.

Like Harry once said to Lloyd "When I think you can't get any dumber and you go do something like this.... and totally redeem yourself"
 
Guys, first time poster from the UK. Wish me well.
A Gillette DE razor has been launched available in Walgreens. News coming through. Link below from Walgreens website.
We know all about this already -> Not excited myself -> don't care for another copy of the copy of the copy...

They will have hard times convincing they're selling me a Gillette razor. Not even close, eh!

 
They are selling/sold it as an edger for beard lines and sideburns. That whirring sound you hear is King Gillette AND Henry Gaisman rolling in their graves. Jacob Schick is probably okay with it.
The stuff Col. Schick invented and put his name on -- the Repeating Razors and first electrics -- were without exception quality stuff. As far as I know King Gillette did nothing in terms of razor innovation or design after his original patent and subsequent sale of his majority interest. He didn't seem to mind the company putting his image on blades prone to snapping all through the 20s.

All the razors including the carts in the new King C Gillette line are listed as edgers also. They are trying to bring in the beard crowd. Whether that works has yet to be seen.
 
Even though it looks like another razor with the DE89 head, Gillette seems to have an interest in the DE market. They must feel that there is a big enough market to turn a profit.
