    181DBE06-E5EA-4B24-A4B0-A2E3DB2D4192.jpeg Yesterday I got from the UPS driver my Y2 (1953 second quarter) Gillette President razor with case and a 20ct of vintage Gillette Blue Blades. It was a bit of a risk buying this razor as some of the photos were a bit blurry, but thankfully everything about the razor and case is in pristine condition. The TTO mechanism works perfectly. I will post how it shaves tomorrow when I give this razor its first shave with me. TBH the razor looks almost as if it never was used. I should mention I paid about $50 for this baby; I know the President razor sells for much, much more than I paid for it. So I know I scored what might be the eBay bargain of the year contender.

    Super Score!

    How long is the handle? Looks a bit short. I would love that.
