    Just purchased a Gillette Tech that has me a little stumped. I like the razor no matter what. I'm just curious as to whether I got a true 1951 Tech or a frankenrazor. Pics below.

    I've read the Tech thread on this site, the Wiki page on B&B, and the Tech page on Razor Emporium. I can't find this exact razor on any of those pages. Any help is much appreciated.

    Looks like a 1951 Contract Tech.
    I could be wrong.

    :signs011: kind of, but I think someone took the gold handle from a 1946 contract and put it on the head of a 1951

    Great shaving razor!
