    Good picture James. I love the razor and case. Is that the correct case for the 40's Gillette? :eatdrink047: :signs107:

    Thanks Doug. I have wondered about the case myself. The set comes from a collector in the UK and the case seems to have the perfect cutout for the 2-piece handle (photo below}

    And the handle seems to be somewhat rare. There are no photos of it on the Mr. Razor site that I could find. On another forum, I did find the photo below of a rare 1946 Gillette No. 26 set with the same handle:

    Excellent smooth shave. You can never go wrong with a Feather in a Mamba. Ditto for Bleu de Chanel. A wonderful day and shaves to all...

    Today is Day 27 of SEptember. Up for the challenge today is my Superior Lather Catcher.

    The GZD Berber Stick face-lathered well with Jayaruh #415 Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Superior Lather Catcher razor with a Personna GEM SS PTFE blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Pinaud Clubman Vanilla. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
