    I just know somewhere out there is a bucket full of old Gillettes. When I find it, I'll let you know. Toggles for everyone! The good news is Toggles were all beta testing done by shavers. They took the feedback from customers and built a better razor - The Fat Boy. Doesn't stop me from wanting a Toggle, but if I never find on in my price range, I'll be OK.

    Same here, I wont pay a crazy price =) 2 or 3 weeks ago I bought a Aristocrat #16 with a loose handle for 25€. Now its solved with the help of some members =) the toggle will be the same thing after some time I will be lucky xD I hope xD

    The Hunt for a new Gillette is part of the fun!

    SharptoothC I bite..........

    Found this cased Black Beauty the other day. The date code is 0 4. I believe it's a 1969. It is extremely well kept. Came with a couple packs of Waltham blades. If they aren't rusted I may give one a go.[​IMG][​IMG]
