    Nice! I suspect the kit is made by another company, not Gillette and they included the razor. I've seen brush kits, but not as nice as this one.

    I have a Fold-A-Brush kit that includes a Gillette Tech.

    JayKay 3000 posts and all I got was this lousy title

    Yeah, somebody else has one. Cant remember who. Posted about it not to long ago trying to figure out what the brush is for. Couldnt decide if it were a hair brush or a shoe brush.

    yeah but hes paying for it now. hes got a bunch of razors FS on another forum.

    ive never been there with razors, but ive been there with other things, so i understand his predicament.

    sometimes RAD isnt rad.

    I have seen one before, but I do think it is a third party thing that just includes a Gillette razor. Still a very cool set.

    Here is a travel set I found a while back that I believe to also be 3rd party, that has a Norfolk in it :D

    So, actually, it is even more of a rarity since very few would have been made. Nonetheless, it is on its way to me. :D

    I'll bet there's a few he doesn't have, but he's gaining on me!

    Yeah, right! If Rodd and I put both our collections together we'd still be a dot in your rear view mirror! :happy102

    Definitely. I am an armature.

    I think Rick and Scott probably passed me up too. I know one thing, I don't have a #16 :rolleyes:
