    I'm so jealous, I would have picked some M-bomb if my ticket was called before all of the TSD shop prizes were claimed!

    A few goodies arrived today. English Ever-Ready 1912, which seems heavier compared to US made ones. Paragon open comb razor from England, Gem Featherweight razor and a Gillette English Tech with English made Bakelite handle made for the French market. Pretty sure I got that right for the Tech. A Spoiler blade dispenser and extra blades. Two different style Gillette Blade Banks. Three bottles of Spearmint e-liquid, gotta have my fix. Some of you may know the Lockheed P-38 Lightning is my favorite plane. And this is something I've wanted for over thirty years, and just never got the chance to get, and spent the last of my budget for. Looks like I'll need to clear out more of my Den. A signed and numbered WW II P-38 Lightning Plate by artist Ross Tylor, 506/7500 (1982).

    Edit: It seems to me that the handle was for a 1940 French Tech set and the head was of the style made during the mid-fifties. And, just a guess mind you, because the handles were made in England and World War II broke out, maybe there were surplus handles stock piled and not sent to France, they were used at a later date after the War.

    Interesting... it's not a Flat Bottom Tech, but a post-War style one. I'm interested to read your impressions of it.

    Without having a scale, the head seems a little heavier than our post war techs.

    I added this for a possible Tech explanation. Who knows, it might be a Frankenrazor, but I like my take on it............

    Received this lot today and I already cleaned them up. The Gem dispenser has been cleaned and I installed 5 fresh new Gem blades. The fat handle tech is Canadian. The star razor looks really nice!

    Great haul! I spotted the Star razor immediately. I get great shaves with my Star.

    Jorge has the early version Star there, I've only shaved with the later gold issue which differs some. Would be interested in how it compares to that Canadian Tech

    From this weekends adventures, a 10 inch soft Ark, a 7 inch Surgical Black and two 5 inch Coti’s, actually 1 and 1/2. The 1/2 Coti lost its BBW. Now I have to find a BBW to save it. I tested the blue-black Ark, has a SG of 2.55. The full Coti has a nice wood grain surface

    The star is suuuuuper mild. I had to back off a quarter turn to open her up a little.
