    Of my Gillette collection by far my favorite is my Bostonian set. This is smooth, close, efficient and comfortable and just down right cool.
    It had become my daily for years, it just being retired in November when I changed over to the Karv open comb.
    Not a mark on it my fear of damaging it after 100 years of flawless service prompted me to give it a rest, I can buy any piece I may need if I put a ding on the Karv, but honestly I still think the Gillette shaves better
