Visited the parents of a childhood friend this weekend and discovered my buddy's dad still shaves with a safety razor. He comes out with THREE Gillette Adjustables! One was a MINT T code black plastic handled model that was still in the box with the original complimentary 5 count box of blades! The others were an H and a J Slim in great user condition. His mom pulled out her dad's Gem Micromatic complete with original box and the BIBLE he carried throughout WWI !
Talk about a treat to touch and feel history. I cleaned them up for him and we oiled the mechanisms.
