    I saw this razor and it intrigue me; so after talking the shipping down from the seller, I purchased it. I hope it wasn't a bad buy, but if it was, it's not the first time ... nor the last.

    There is some lettering near the base of the handle, but unsure what the razor is.

    "BAR" suggests Rotbart.

    I was reading up on it and it holds the blade similar to a Tech, with four corner tabs.

    I like the scalloped safety bar. I hope it turns out to be a good shaver.
    The picture shows what appears to be a zippered case, did you get that with the deal?

    It did come with a case, but it didn't belong to it and would have cost $10 more in shipping; so I opted to just get the razor by itself.

    I already have two travel case I need to get rid of in a trade some time.

    It's like this; I have to try other razor out to re-enforce how amazing Gillettes really are. :D
