    A Dark Oasis gift set given to me today. A knockoff of Drakkar that I can use when shaving with WSP Fougere soap.

    Found these at a local junk store.
    I don't or didn't have any old DE razors just new. But the price seemed right $22 for all. Some lite cleaning and disinfectant and I have 5 new to me razors to try out.

    Nice set. From here, it looks like a Pre-War Tech, Travel Tech, 50s SuperSpeed (TV Special?), Slim Adjustable, and Black-Handle SuperSpeed. Easily worth what you paid.

    I think it's called a black tip instead of black handle super speed

    Although Gillette still called them Super Speeds (Light/Regular/Heavy).

    Idk what that means
    In 50 and 51 the was the black tip. Predecessor to the blue tip, silver and red tip. images-3.jpg
    Later on, like early 70s very late 60s they made the black handle super Speed. download.jpg
    Let that's how I've known them called.

    Correct, of course. Black-handled would be the ones starting in the mid-1960s.

    That thread in the straight razor forum got me to know that I NEEDED an Arkie. :drool:
    I love the idea of doing tons of laps... almost meditating. And if I am honing that long, I wanted it to look cool. :cool:
    I think I found what I was looking for:

    Looking forward to putting some razors across it!

    Found in the wild today. A beautiful prewar tech, in the box, with 1 blade. Seller says unused, but three blades went somewhere... How about just slightly used.

    Yes, and the box is in really good shape too for its age.
