    Hello, guys just wanted to post some exciting news as I eagerly await the arrival of my Gillette Slim! My first DE was a parker 96R and I enjoy the cut and comfort it offers. But I'm ready to put a classic in the den! I will post before and after pics of the slim when I get it all cleaned up!

    :signs046: to the Den. Glad to have you aboard. 1967 was a very good year for the Slim. You're off to a great start.

    Here's a pic of the slim after some hot water and dish soap. I have not polished it yet though. The before pics did not turn out very good. I think for 9 dollars and free shipping on the bay, it wasn't a bad buy. image.jpg image.jpg

    It was a heck of a buy at $9.00.

    Heck YEAH it was! Dude, you made OUT!

    I've noticed a little bit of cooling on Slims lately, but $30.00 still is a decent price for a usable Slim. $9 knocked it right out of the ballpark. Good on yer!

    Thanks guys. I work mid nights and happen to find it recently posted. I don't think the guy knew what it was.
