    Razor: Gillette old type with tech fat handle-MFG 1920's,upper mid range, this razor was very much enjoyed by previous owner-s? it has a very brassed top cap , it came from a person with minimum means is what I thought when I observed the handle how he jammed paper in around threaded insert and barrel area of handle . He must of had a very good hand technique to shave with a wobbly cracked round ball type handle. He had to squeeze handle and stroke at the same time to make it work.
    Blade: Gillette silver blue[​IMG] (3) excellent blade, Sharp & smooth.
    Soap: Taylor of old Bond street Sandal wood(tobs)- very enjoyable scent with good lather qualities.
    Brush: Yaqi dice, Tuxedo knot 26 mm syn- Excellent lather creator with cloud like soft tips, newly purchased.
    Pre shave: Brush wash whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of Clear Aloe Vera gel on beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Proraso red Sandal wood with witch hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers = [​IMG] Excellent shave with my well used Gillette Old type.(Can understand why previous owner liked this razor so much!)

    A special (to me) Gillette Old Type. It's user grade and has seen better days. But this was my great uncle's razor given to me by my aunt. I never met my great uncle because he passed away in the 1930's. When my aunt found out I was interested in old razors she gave this to me.[​IMG]
