Safety Razor Acquisition Thread.

A day off work, placed a fairly low bid on a certain bidding site. A few hours later I checked my phone messages and was genuinely surprised to learn that I had won this beauty! Re-plated by the previous owner, looks flawless. Have a great weekend all

Wow!
Great looking Toggle!
I am very curious as to what your bid was, but this being a gentlemen's forum I won't ask for it explicitely...

(please tell me! )
 
I finally got my first 1.gen British 'Aristocrat' for the collection so now I got all four 👌

The razor and case looked pretty good when I received it, but for sure deserved a little of my special love 😅

I’m a sucker for brass razors. I would love to own one of these someday. Enjoy!

Found this ball end Tech in a vintage store in Juneau. A straight razor case caught my eye from the window, but it only contained some broken scales. Behind it was this beauty. The box has seen better days, but I'm not complaining. There was an old Shick blade and a Gillette Thin in the box with it. A Gillette Blue blade was still loaded in the razor.
 
Could somebody help me out on this? Not sure exactly what I got, but I got it cheap lol 🤣! I just recently got a bad case of vintage RAD, but I'm no aficionado yet! I picked up this guy, a Tech, and a travel Tech. It's not in perfect shape but it's pretty decent. I couldn't find a date code, so if somebody knows where to look let me know!

Tl;dr what is it?

Most likely 1920's ball end old type. A beautiful shaver to use. Congratulations.

Awesome! Thanks guys! I really like the look and feel of it! It has a very small crack in the handle (maybe 1mm) that is barely noticeable. But that's okay, I don't collect things just to collect and/or resell, I'm a user. And this baby is gonna get used!!!

I am sorry to disappoint you, but that crack can get bigger with use. One day the handle might just fall apart.
