    What better blade holder for a 1960 F2 Super Blue Blade than a 1960 F2 Adjustable 195. The two came together this morning for a great vintage shave experience, exactly as would have greeted the faces of shavers around the globe 60 years ago.

    I can understand. I've had problems in the past with uneven blade gaps due to abuse. The ones I kept have had that defect corrected. But out of 30 odd vintage Gillettes, only three are adjustable .

    very cool.mine were in good shape but rarely used.one could say they replicated many of the razors i have shave wise but ..i prefer the non adjustables.they have their place in history though,but if i don't use them ,i don't need them.my mint gold brit flare tip is the exception.i have used it a couple of times ,but i don't need to..just like your new aristocrat..:)

    Well, for the last couple of weeks, I've been using these 2 razors, Feather blades and various Stirling soaps and splashes. I really like the Ranger but the New Improved is quite possibly the best razor I've ever picked up. It seems to have just enough bite to make sure I keep the right angle but safe enough for a Feather blade.
    Tonight's shave:
    1921 (?)New Improved
    Stirling Gatlinburg
    Feather blade (4)
    Semogue 830
    Witch Hazel with Tea Tree Oil
    Barbasol Brisk
    No blood and no burn with the aftershave. Surprised the xxxx out of me too. :git:
