    I'm not sure what I have here. Made in England, and been told it's a New Improved. The guy I bought it from said it was a Bostonian .. you guessed it, it doesn't have a case. ;) By far the best razor / shaver I have but I couldn't stand to shave with it "everyday". :)

    It's not a Bostonian without the case, the razors were the same (New Standard, Bostonian, Richwood in US). My favorite Gillette, congratulations.

    A deep ringer for the New Improved? :)

    The 3 inch Karve handle vastly improves handling of the Old Type, and comes in about 13g heftier than the New Improved. The NI is still the easier shave being less fussy about angle, the OT a tad more effective ATG, but I feel no need to choose among these two favorites. A NI Tuckaway is in transit.

    Had to freshen up the old mug tonight before the YL gets home. So, I grabbed the Phoenix Dbl OC that arrived yesterday and a new feather blade. Took it for a spin with some Amici.
    It's not a slant OC but I got a great shave, close and smooth, being it's #2 shave today.
    I like it, yea, nice razor, the wife will approve.

    Not my favorite soap Williams, but it does the job when properly used. My Schöne with a feather blade does s good job on a second shave for tonight. The Omega brush needed some use so.....

    New (Not NEW) Short Comb /PolSilver (2). Karve handle makes a companion superior to the worst handle Gillette ever (mis)matched to a razor.[​IMG]
