I came across my first vintage “wild find” at a local thrift store for around 20 bucks. It’s a Gillette Old Type with ball end handle… with no date code, no patent number, no serial number. Just a Gillette diamond logo and Made in USA on the baseplate. It came in (I think) the Brownie case and had a Domino blade from New York, NY. It has the usual handle crack that I’ve seen in other posts, but it’s very small/thin/hairline, I didn’t even notice it until I started cleaning the razor, at first in the store I thought I got lucky and found an un-cracked one…you can see it marked in the pics with a red circle. I have some questions about it and I’m also looking for some advice. The origin questions – 1. What year do you think this is from? 2. Would it be considered a Brownie or a Khaki set? I’m leaning towards Brownie since the case actually does look like a chocolate brownie. 3. From the side view pics with the red circles around the crack...do you think it’s a thin cap or thick cap? Advice questions- 4. When cleaning it, the top threaded part of the handle popped off like a cork (shown in photo). It popped back together very tightly and doesn’t spin, isn’t loose, and doesn’t seem like it would be a problem while shaving….but is there some kind of glue or epoxy or some method to lock that piece back into the handle more permanently and possibly seal the crack too? 5. How can I clean/disinfect the case, especially the inside fabric? Now that the razor has been thoroughly cleaned and polished I don’t want to put it back into that dirty old case. All the Gillette lettering has been totally worn away so I don’t have to worry about preserving the letters or the logo.
