    Hey all,

    Hope the weekend is treating everyone well! So, as I continue to dig into the hobby(/obsession) I'm looking to learn a bit more about vintage DE razors. I poked around some of the stickies, which are *amazing* (I'm looking at you, MTgrayling & AsylumGuido!), but can anyone recommend some sites/resources to learn more about the dating and coding of the Gillette Super Speeds?

    Another good source is the date code section of Badger & Blade, another shaving forum. Just Google "Gillette date codes" and follow the B&B link.

    BTW - the people here at TSD address friendlier.

    IMG_0306.JPG I know that the veterans around here probably know all this, but us FNG's are still learning. Since I just picked up my first SS over the weekend I figured this thread might be of interest. Still on the hunt for a Red Tip. I've got several vendors at the fleamarket looking for me.

    Need to get the Slim Twist/Quick Twist, and the Super Slim Twist in there. Oh -and the Rocket. There's no reason to leave them out of the chart, really. It doesn't matter if they were made in England, Canada, or the US - if the names are different, it's worth adding.
