    OCtober 9th- I have been eyeing my Gillette old type that I acquired back last yr and have used it a few times since. I bought it with a _bay lot , you know when you come across a well liked razor that the previous owner cherished from the wear of the top cap plate. Almost all the Nickel has disappeared and the bottom plate is almost pristine & not a bent tooth with no dents so he enjoyed this one, also I had to replace the (paper) wedged Gillette ball type handle with a (spare)Gillette Tech handle. I usually get a weeper or two from this razor but it gives a close shave and is more a upper mid range for aggression razor IMO.

    Razor : Gillette old type-MFG 1920's + a Tech handle Mfg-1940's
    Blade: Gillette Silver Blue (4)
    Soap : Nivea sensitive shave cream
    Brush: Yaki Tuxedo knot 24mm+
    Pre shave: Wet the face + Aloe vera gel on beard area only
    Post shave: Alum + cold water rinse
    Post shave: Razorock Blue barber with witch hazel + Nivea cool kick balm
    Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + Alum indicated some irritation + 1 chin weeper = [​IMG]

    When I first got my first Gillette Adjustable about 5 months ago (1964 Slim ) I accidentally took the paint off the adjustment dial . Toothbrush and dawn. You’d be surprised how easily it will come off!! And I did it again with my 1969 super 109 black beauty by accident! Lol I totally forgot to skip over the adjustment dial. That being said it’s an easy fix . i’ve seen a video from Matt from razor emporium , in witch he used enamel paint and a tooth pick to get the job done. I have a place near where I live called “AAA HOBBIE SHOP” I’m real confident that they have it! I will let u guys know how the razors look like when it finished!! Anyone else have the same problem, or have to re-paint their Gillette Adjustable? What did u use? And what do you recommend?

    -Thanks

    7CC6CA00-6D15-4C38-B952-DAE0618C802A.jpeg Loved the Gillette Red Tip on Monday and decided I would carry on with the Super Speed Trio! So today I reached for the 1956 Flare Tip Super Speed. Loaded up with a Voskhod and to work I went.

    RazoRock Gold was the soap of the day with the matching AS. Lovely spice, citrus and amber all mixed in there. Love RazoRock soaps and AS because I haven’t had a bad one yet and the performance per dollar is excellent.

    Lovely two pass shave and good to go for work. Nice and smooth the Flare Tip.

    Hump Day...soon the weekend will be upon us. Take care and safe travels.

    I did the same method as the Razor Emporium video on both my Fatboy and Slim. I just picked up some black enamel paint from Hobby Lobby. Pretty straightforward and they came out looking nice.
