    wednesday
    1943 canadian service set
    platinum
    canadian rubberset-original knot
    handsome grouse mint/gaylord mug
    clubman whiskey woods/woodbury bottle

    [​IMG]

    good afternoon gents.
    back from some errands so time for a shave.
    third use on the platinum now loaded into the canadian wartime tech.
    fabulous grouse face lather with the canadian rubberset boar.
    original knot still holding strong with no visible shedding.
    smooth 2 passer in the usual way.
    very similar to the british tech used for the last 2 shaves.
    razor is a touch head heavy due to it's original fat handle.
    whiskey woods aftershave caps it off.

    awesome.

    the hardware
    have a couple of these razors but this set is new to me.
    got it for a great price due to the missing mirror.
    replica mirror on the way.

    monday
    german 1953 #34 tech
    platinum
    soc taj boar
    klar sport
    clarins

    [​IMG]

    good day gents:)
    the tech focus continues with an aluminum example..
    the german tech.the blade is held with a higher curvature than other techs,
    resulting in more blade rigidity and a slightly different angle of attack.
    is it better?..to me just different.i believe the design didn't last long 2-3 years..not sure.
    fine 2 pass shave all the same,though the light weight of this razor took a bit to get used to.
    lovely klar face lather with the soc boar.
    clarins a/s to finish

    awesome.:cool:

    after a few shaves with the brit fb and canadian war techs;
    the shaves are fabulous but little difference felt between the razors themselves.
    both have similar prewar shaped baseplates like a new lc.
    the post war designs offered better blade clamping resulting in more rigidity making for a smoother shave,though a touch milder feeling.
    opinions vary..;)

    thave a great rest of monday everyone.

    they are a fine shaver.they came from the gillette new era and were available with the 7 oclock and nacet name brands as well. the british flat bottom tech came from this design also.

    my original gold tech had the tweed case but i moved it along.
    this near pristine spare is housed nicely in this unknown windsor style case.

    have a fine tuesday everyone

    Always assume this is a Canadian Rocket…but given the lack of case, it is the same as a ‘Crat Jr.
