    my 4 fav's.

    20210629_152349_edited.jpg

    well here it is,my 4 favorite 3 piece razors
    these will stay together as the are.
    l to r top-brit new /tech hybrid/french fat handle,nickel new SC/tech ball end handle
    l-r bottom-brit new rfb/french thin handle,canadian fb tech/canadian military handle.
    these took a bit of time to acquire and build but it's worth it to me.
    all are very well balanced,nimble,heavy and smooth/efficient...and beautiful;)..
    no complete sets were ruined as these were all bits from partially damaged or sets missing bits or cases.
    cigar box is lined with foam and houses them.all of course all parts are interchangeable.;)
    of course i have favorite tto razors and such but i could easily keep these and not need another.
    :eatdrink047:


    a quick note..the canadian razor is possibly the rarest.and most definitely my rarest gillette..:)

    Thanks. The last time I used that razor was on my wedding day, about ten years ago.
