I was afraid the finish was flaking off, but couldn't feel it with my fingernail. Toothpaste gave me hope, so I got some Mothers polish

A little thrift store shopping. My first calculator, a couple of brushes, an old spice glass bottle, a Shaeffer fountain pen and 2 crusty razors. A Schick Adjustable Injector and a E3 Blue Tip with a blade. I could not date the razor becasue of the crud on it, but the blade is an X2, which got me to thinking why would that razor just be sitting around for over 60 years without ever being used. When i removed enough of the crud to see the date code, the razor is an E3, which means the combo has only been sitting around for up to 55 years. Each little piece of history has a story. Just wondering what this ones is. I started with a twenty, and when done, I had enough left over for a Tim Hortons coffee.

Ravi, are these handles "rounder" (or less slim) compared to the black and white ones we both have?

Good eye, Ben.

I checked before I left the house this morning.
These new ones (pearly gray and tortoise) have slightly more bulbous handles, compared to the others, with a width of app. 3mm more (I don't have calipers).
The knots are all identical to my eye, ie no different in terms of width or loft.

I'll get a comparison photo later today.
