    When I'm not hanging out over in the SE and Injector party, I'll come by here.
    I have a love for Vintage Gillette Razors, and when I think I have enough, I trade for something else that I want.

    Is this vintage enough? Date code reads B4, according to a comment on my shave video that makes it a 1956.

    That's a nice shave setup if you do say so myself :). Seriously, I want the Whiskey Woods for my next Clubman Alcohol A.S.

    This week I have been shaving with my L3 Gillette Slim from 1966. It is 52 years old, so I guess it qualifies as a vintage Gillette. I picked it up at a yard sale on September 21, along with a dispenser of Gillette Super Blue Blades from 1977.

    It cleaned up really nice, and it has been an excellent shaver. My preferred setting for the Slim is 7. Today, I used my Jayaruh #18 silvertip badger brush and Williams Mug Shaving Soap. I finished off with Aquavelva Sensitive 5 in 1 ASB.

    Sunday, I have my birth year razor ready to go for the Sunday shave.
    I was lucky to find it for a decent price.
    1985 black beauty. Has the black plastic instead of the metal bottom cap.
    Not sure it that will qualify or not.

    Today I used my Post War Ball End Tech, Klar Rasierseife and Speik afershave. My home made brush whipped up a nice lather and provided the cushion necessary for the Tech to produce a very nice smooth shave.
