Safety Razor Acquisition Thread.

No, they are ultra rare. I think I found my other 4 years ago, and who knows when the last turned up before that one... I am in nyc where they originated and have never seen any sign of one in the wild

Nice Ladie's Gillette!!
My daughter has expressed interest in DE shaving for her legs. I need to find one for her...
She ordered me a Battle Brother's MKII Captain's set for my Birthday. I should try and find one of these for her's.
My daughter loves the blue one I gave her.
 
I've got a plastic-handled Tech and a backup plastic Wilkinson Sword Classic coming in the next little while. Other than buying a couple of Palmolive shave sticks, I've been pretty light on the acquisition front lately.
 
I found this out an about today J-1

I’ve been been heavy on my acquisition’s lately I’ve got to back off so this will hopefully be my last for a while maybe I can get my RAD back under control
 
Hello all,

My foray into the vintage world is going strong. Got a couple of nice Gillettes over the past month or so.

1. US Made - Aristocrat Jr.: I got lucky with this one as I didn't know what to look for with the US-made AJ. I thought I was picking up a super speed and only found out it is an AJ after the sale. After 4 uses, I'm sold - this is a great razor! I've been using the 7 o'clock yellow blades that the seller added to the package and they work really well together.

Great razor - I am not sure how they compare to other super speeds but I've been very happy with it. The razor is in great condition too!




2. English RFB Tech: I found this one on ebay and having never tried an open comb razor, I picked it up. Decent condition but some brassing on the base plate. Already had a few shaves with it, paired with a Gillette platinum blade and the shave was good - quite smooth. However, I find I prefer the FB techs to this one.




What's next to try? :)
