I located two razors this month that I been wanting, a Birth Year 1950 Gillette 40's Style Super Speed and a Gillette Bar Handle NEW Short Comb.

I have 4 shaves now with the SS and used the NEW today. Both are great performers. The NEW gave me one of my best shaves ever.

Good start to the year!

The SS was from Etsy and the NEW was a B/S/T from a Nook member.

Thanks y'all!

Those darn Gillette New razors! I have never heard a bad word about them. I feel the same way. I own 2 New DeLuxe razors. They give a fantastic shave.

Bob,

Both your new razors are way up on my list too. I love the 40s Superspeeds and the NEW. Mine is a long comb, but I hear that both models are pretty close in feel.

If you fall in love with the Open Comb Gillettes you may want to check out a NEW-Improved or NEW DeLuxe razor too.

Enjoy!

It came. I shaved. I loved.

Excellent piece of equipment even with a cheap-o RiteAid blade!

Nice find Bob. I have enjoyed watching and reading about your wet shaving adventure since you started back in July 2013. Your collection of goodies is growing nicely.
