Yes, that was one of the sources I used to ID this. I read a lot of old posts here on B&B, eliminated possibilities, and came to the conclusion that it's not a Regent Tech.
It was probably made when Gillette was changing back from making carburetor parts to making razors. They were probably pulling parts out of bins, dusting them off, putting them together, and shipping razors out the door again.
I'm sure you have all figured it out, but I thought I would tag in the Aristocrat expert that I know.... @Hannah's Dad -- he is the gentleman that I call on when I see anything resembling an Aristocrat.
RE has a video which is extremely informative as to the Regent Tech.
I am in no way endorsing Matt's business or products, but he often does history well.
This chimes into my knowledge of US watime economic history. In the summer of 1944 the Allies believed the Nazi regime would collapse in weeks, this belief was very strong in August 1944 after the breakout from Normandy into the depths of France and the Wehrmacht's apparent collapse. It involved very large slashes in armament orders, especially artillery ammunition and many other items.
The German recovery in October 1944 and the subsequent battles in the Saar and the Hurtgen Forest, and the December German offensive in the Ardennes region caused US industry to urgently ramp up production again.
The US domestic economy was caught up in the Summer of 1944 with the belief that the war was almost over. This caused a temporary increase in domestic consumables being made available. I think the Regent Tech is tied up in this.
Either way, a very nice, no nonsense shaver like a Super Speed only with a heavier, and large diameter handle that has great, grippy knurling topped with the same rounded shaving head like a Fat Boy--just lacking the complicated adjustability it doesn't really need. I always get great auto-pilot shaves with my '46 and next to my Fat Boys, one of my favorite razors.
