    Thank you for your kind words. Sometimes, the oldest is the best. It's the oldest razor in my den.

    British Gillette New long comb, Bic chrome platinum blade, shave 1
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    British New long comb made for the French market. Mild and smooth shave I would opine it is about the same as an American New long comb.

    Gillette Nacet, Bic Chrome Platinum blade, shave 2
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Razor is open comb version of the British Tech. I don't if it is the comb or the fact it is branded as Nacet the razor is definitely more efficient and a closer shave than your standard tech. On the branding thing if what I think I know is correct is the Nacet branded razors were made for Middle Eastern market and as such may have been designed to shave differently than the British ones branded as Gillettes regardless of the comb.

    This surely qualifies as a OC razor. Has the most combs from any Gillette NEW - 14:

    Not sure, but quite possible they wanted to cut on production cost.
