    That is a very nice collection. I was intrigued by the Gillette adjustable injector.

    I'm upset that we here in Boston lost Gillette.

    So that's the bloke who ended up winning the lithograph used for all the blade packages auction. He got a hell of a steal on that. It's a miracle it even survived, let alone stayed out of a museum.

    What do you mean, lost? Did the buildings burn down yesterday or something?

    Well,..I'm a little confused now-I thought Proctor&(take a)Gamble now owns Gillette. But then I see these current Gillette ads with a guy speaking with a thick Boston dialect, talkinabout all he's done for Gillette.

    P&G does own Gillette. But Gillette still operates a manufacturing plant in Boston, and Gillette's R&D is all done in Boston. The manufacturing plant is so that Gillette can say "some of our stuff is made in America." The vast majority of Gillette products are made overseas, of course.

    That's an interesting razor. I've never heard of that one before.
