All excellent razors ... you could use that as your avatar.
Good idea! Thanks.
Here's another mild one that I quite enjoy, especially with a sharp blade...
They are very nice!
A Feather blade turns a mild razor like a SS or Tech into a very efficient tool.
Now you need to get a Wilkinson "Sticky"
Yeah it does. Gillette Nacets have been working great for me as well.
I don’t know what that is.
I stole the pics ... too lazy to take pic of mine.
Nice mild razor ... I enjoy mine. I usually buy the unusual razors.
i like the nacets in my tech.very nice.
Well, yes I do need one of those
@Enrico - they fetch a nice price
If your patient ... deals can be found. I got mine for under $20.
I believe we’re like minded on that
Of course the early Super Speeds are notoriously (is that the right word here?) mild.
The one on the left is a 1952 (X2) and the one on the right is a 1949 (NDC-No Date Code but it has PAT NOS ON PACKAGE stamped inside rather than PAT NOS ON PKG).
And it wasn't just the steel and aluminum handled Black Tips from '51 and '52 that used less brass, this X2 has a steel baseplate. The all brass '49 is just a couple of grams heavier, probably because of that.
It's interesting (to me anyway!) how the red cases differ, the main thing being the much lower blade divider on the '49 case to the right.
These are just sweet and elegantly simple razors. There's not much to fiddle with and not much to go wrong. I like them a lot.
Interesting! I never noticed the difference in the cases.
I wonder what the notches on the sides of the left hand case are for. Maybe for a string or cord to keep the case from being opened? Like tie-wraps are used today?
