    I saw this and can't identify it. I believe it's either an English or Russian Gillette. Sorry for bad pic.

    The case looks Gillette.

    You may be correct about the razor being Russian.

    A few bidders are going bananas over it on ebay. I like unusual, but not at that price. :eek:

    I couldn't find any pics of that type of knurling from @mr-razor's site. Also the case looks similar for a 1920's New Standard or Criterion.

    It might be Brazilian.

    Yeah, I looked at @mr-razor site as well and didn't see one that matched it, hence the reason I thought it may have been a Russian. I'm not too sure the case goes to it.

    I have a Brazilian and their works are more like the American style then the Russian or English.

    I hope someone here gets it so we can learn more about it. :)

    I noticed the blade bank doesn't match the razor.

    I was looking to see if there was any leftover color from the logo. If gold, it might be part of the case, if silver, nope.

    I think the case is real Gillette, I think the razor is a sort-of clone that someone put in that case just to sell it.

    I don't want to be selfish; I'll let someone else love it more. :love055:

    I checked the internet for TTO Russian razors, but no luck.

    Hi, here are a few examples of vintage soviet razors I found on Google.

    To be quite honest, unless I planned on purchasing it, I don't contact the seller. Strange as it may sound I think it would be rude for me to do.

    I saw these; the only reason I thought it might be Russian due to its utilitarian look.
