    Here is a Gillette Bulldog Military set you may not have seen before. An inner frame rotates out to present the razor and blade cases when the case is stood on end. No lining, perhaps designed for harsh environments or to be used in a medical setting.

    Btw I joined here a while back when I first dumped my electric razor and got into wet shaving. This is where it all started for me so I plan on sharing and participating here more often in the future.

    I've been ruined.

    I've always loved the Tuckaway type sets. They don't seem to be very popular among collectors but imo they are beautiful and the compact cases are cool.

    I spotted this cased set on an auction site one day. Strangely enough my initials are engraved on the case. Stranger still the engraving is oriented for a left handed customer (case opens to the left) and I am a lefty. I'm not sure if this case is correct for the set. There are quite a few variations but I think a New should be in the case.

    When I was a kid in the 60's I watched my Father engrave items with a pantograph at our family jewelry store. The marks were smooth unlike the ones on this case. If you zoom in on the letters you can see a pattern. Factory engraved methinks.
