You are correct, Gillette sells their own handle. AOS contracted with Bolin Webb for this handle.

Maybe this will convince you to try it. I'm not sure which is worse. The gel or the razor...... Run away!

Trust me, the gel was worst. Nothing like smearing soap on dry skin to ruin your shave. Nothing wrong with the razor, just the operator.

As a prior Mach 3 user I can sort of see the attraction ... to an extent. Seems like something I might have tried 10 years ago.

As far as the gel goes, I actually used to use that stuff. Lathered up with a brush though. Worked better than straight canned foam I must say.

I, too, was utterly struck by the gel on dry whiskers and the dry shave. I kept wanting to yell at him, "Dip it in water!"
