    As I follow my addiction I have decided to hunt a big one. The abc gillette set. I really want one. But I’m going to look and see if I can find one without paying an entire months salary for it. I was wondering if any of you would show the set you have so I can drool even more...

    Don't have one, not really my flavor, I'm drawn to the basic working man's kind of razors. But if they had a handle that looked like barbed wire wrapped around a broken bone I might consider it, but it would have to be the early ABC with rounded bottoms between the teeth. :D And bare brass of course.

    I agree on the teeth! Good points across the board my friend! But I’m stuck with my addiction! Hahahaha.

    Thank you! As soon as the other two come in I’ll share them. The empire isn’t in the greatest condition, but hey it’s an empire couldn’t pass up the good deal. Hopefully it cleans up decent.

    Well, I guess, that is now going on my wish list. One day, maybe, I will run across one and snatch it up.

    I have been on a buying spree here lately and finally broke down and bought this King Gillette Pocket edition.
    no cleaning yet, just barbicide so far. Looks better than the picture depicts lol.

    Your post prompted me to check eBay to see what they usually go for - then I saw this!

    In all fairness, that "Big Pocket" set is pretty unusual. I don't think I've ever seen reference to one, even on Achim's site.

    With that name, it is almost as if someone was trolling the razor-buying public.
