    Here is one you may not see again anytime soon. It looks like a flat bottom tech but has shoulders like an old type and was most likely made sometime between 1962 and 1968ish based on the handle. Logo is also a 1960s style Gillette logo and cap style is of the 62 and later tech razors. Cap used to have Gillette embossed on it but the original lettering is almost completely faded. I don't think this was ever made for Anglo markets. This one came from India and maybe a unique variation to that market.

    very cool score.makes sense as both blade types are probably still in use in some countries, or older tooling.

    Very strange to see holes punched in a flat bottom tech baseplate, and even stranger to see blade centering posts on a late model cap. Very neat and unique razor.

    Of interest while perusing ebay. This is far as I know the last production year or close to it for a Canadian 3pc Tech razor with a date code of 1953.
