Vintage DE find

Discussion in 'Double Edged Razors' started by heythatsneat, Jul 13, 2018.

    Hey all! This forum has been super helpful since I found a E3 Fat Boy and a W3 Super 109 in a vintage store. I have been reading and learning a lot and am excited to add these to the rotation with my EJ89. I feel that the Gillettes need some work though. Both look to have uneven gaps between the door and safety bar. Also, the Super 109 has a lazy door. I emailed CAP to see if he can take the job but no response yet.

    I cleaned them up and they look good enough to use... Almost...

    Seems like a friendly forum and lots to learn!

    Pics now...
  1. Great finds! I started using a W3 Super-109 (my birth year) a couple weeks ago and it quickly became my daily driver. Just got my hands on a Super-84 (O4) and can’t wait to give that one a try as well.

  4. Please note CAP usually responds in a few days, so be patient!
    I can recommend anyone else for that job - he is the best out there.
    Good luck!
  5. Thanks guys.. Now I want to find an H4 Super Adjustable as well. This is addicting.

  8. Addicting? Oh, just you wait! Vintage razors, new razors, soaps, brushes, blades, and more! :)
  9. Get those gaps fit and you’ll have a couple of great razors.
  10. Cap’s a great guy and worth the wait.
    Nice finds!
  11. I've been on the lookout for a Super 109.
    You should send it to me.
    It's my birthday, Precious!
    Nice find.
  12. If you could find me an H4 Black Handle Super Speed you can have this one.
  13. My BHSS is an O2. Quel dommage.
    Ah, well, lazy door and all that.
