I am PIF'ing this in honor of Johnny9. He sold me a great Old Type last week (needed a silver one). Yes I did have it up for sale, but I figured I'd give it away in honor of Johhny. It will need a touch of epoxy at the top of the handle and it has the standard hairline crack. You can't have tried an Old Type to be eligible.

Having a couple of these myself, I'm certainly not in this one. For those that haven't tried it, IMHO this head is definitely one of the best that Gillette ever put to market. OCs Are my favorite and this is one of my favorite OCs.

Very nice Dave.

Nice work, Dave (I'm not in). For those who are wondering, the Gillette Old is not nearly as aggressive as some have reported and they give nice shaves. There are several modern razors that possess much more bite. Good luck to all!

I'm not in but absolutely +1 on the aggressive nature of these razors. They are not nearly as bad as some modern open combs. Whoever wins this, enjoy! I really like mine.

You'll enjoy an Old Type. There is nothing quite like it. Has to be in my top 5.

Thanks Johnny, welcome to The Shave Nook, I remember you from B&B. The Old Type is a great razor, I'm really enjoying using it.
