    Thanks Gary, and the News go all the way to 1946? And I see a lot of similarities between your French Service Set and the Nacet New. Awesome shaves from the Nacet.

    Where are the New News made? I wonder if the build quality is as good as those made in the 30's? As I remember, the TTO's from the late 50's started to cheapen and felt different in the hand than the earlier makes. Back in the 50's, my father always told me the Gillette made in England were superior and the Canadian makes as well. Well for certain, I have all the razors I'll need. Forever. LOL But I did buy a 3ONE6. :)

    all the nacet/gillette open comb 3 piece razors are european as far as i know.need to research more.same quality as the later techs which means cheaper quality than the 30s ones.
