    It's pretty cool. I just wish they would have an open comb option.

    I kinda hope they don't tbh. Meeting your hero's and all that.

    A NEW knock off/ rehash with a pot metal head made in China wouldn't really set me on fire with lust tbh.

    I don't think they could do there heritige justice with anything new and tbh, i am sure modern manufacturers like EJ or Mhule or Merkur will do it much better.

    Like @brit says, lets see. I doubt it though.

    Ah Gillette...you know you done @$!#:&* up when a bunch of shaving enthusiasts look at your new, retro razor and go, "well...the case is nice."

    This is one instance where I'd be going "find the bloke who designed the case. Put him/her in charge of the razor too."

    Edit: I wonder if this is the razor Art of Shaving was saying Gillette was coming out with...oh...about 5 years ago?

    good point.the head looks like an ej/merkur pot metal head.nothing wrong if you like them.would have liked to see a replica tech head at least..pre war would be good..

    Reminds me of a New handle with an EJ89 head. But I agree with @lightcs1776, wish it came with an open comb head. Even a Tech head would've been nice.

    Can't expect too much from Proctor & Gamble.

    The case looks good. I have plenty of bar handles and I'm good with the DE89 clone.

    Yep it will at least be collectible due to the fact that it's their first in many years and if it's a hit great they continue and if not they get to say it was a limited edition. People had been saying they hope they made a new one even if only limited and it looks like they listened.

    Is a band razor a single edge?

    I imagine that has been hotly argued before :p

    I think that's pretty sad given what Gilllette could he have done. Unfortunately I already have three of those EJ clone Chinese heads which I think is enough.

    Covered.
