    I received my razor,I'll post pictures in the morning. First thought is a copy of the EJ DE89 type head, very short handle, the box smells like oil. If Gillette really wanted to do a "heritage" razor a new TTO would have been the right call.

    I live really close to a Amazon warehouse, I don't think I ordered it on the release day, maybe just luck.

    That's nice. So your Amazon deliveries are just walked over to your house?

    Mine is on its way. Still like having a new "Gillette" razor, even if it's not quite.

    Do you think this is a test for Gillette to check demand for a Gillette DE?

    1DFA04C9-AA71-47CF-9460-C06BCBFBABBF.jpeg Just got my Heritage razor and just finished shaving with it today. It is an excellent razor for both the beginner and the expert wet shaver. I got a very easy BBS shave with no damage to speak of.

    No. All they did was make the case. I may buy one just for the case and use it for something else.

    I got mine:

    The knurling is very grippy. Looks good. Not quite a vintage Gillette handle but it looks good.

    Mine arrived today and looks much better than I thought it would.

    The handle does not feel as light as I thought it would. It’s a little top heavy, but not bad on the balance at all. The fit and finish looks excellent and the case is well built.

    I’ll have my maiden shave with it later this week.

    :)
