I happened across my Birth Year Ball End Tech and snatched it up. I won't be using it for a while, but will look forward to shaving with a razor as old as I am. It cleaned up well too.

We share the same birth year razor. I had mine gold plated. Sadly the 46 thru 50 Techs cannot be distinguished by year.

Well, I had my first shave today with my 1950 Ball End Tech. I used a Personna Med Prep. As expected, it provided a very easy shave with no nicks or burn. It took a while to get used to its much lighter weight than my Super Speed or MR1. Three passes, nice and smooth.

Johnny, you were right.
