    Thanks, Sergio. 1947 was the first Super-Speed. You differentiate this model from the newer by the UN-Notched center bar.

    Gillette Slim adjustable, Bic Chrome Platinum, shave 6

    Razor set on 8 and done as comparison shave against my prior shave using the Slim Aristocrat adjustable also set on 8. Both shave the same on the same setting so that settles that for me that they are the same razor just different proverbial paint job option is all.
