    I may have posted this before, but this is my Gillette Goodwill French Empire Set. It was made in England for the French market. I will be using it this week.

    A lot of us would agree that the SC is tied to Autostrop and Gaisman but it's not clear to me how the slot relates to the 1927 patent or to the Goodwill offerings other than the likely Autostrop connection.

    Yup I just wonder if Waits had some other documentation to go on.

    Right. Would be nice to know what the "1935 Exhibit of Gillette and Probak razors" refers to. Waits is quoting Krumholz here . On the one hand it does confirm the Gaisman link we suspected, on the other it suggests distribution earlier than some thought for the Short Comb. Adam on B&B also raised the unexpected appearance of the SC in a discussion last year.
