Found this and bought it for $50. Hope some can tell me the razor handle and/or type. I do know it's a Gillette razor and the it's called the `Weekender`. I haven't found much else. I will be using it tomorrow morning. I can't wait.

That's a beauty. I am really starting to appreciate those old Gillette razors. Too bad they don't make DEs anymore.

Beautiful set up. It's a Gillette Fat Handle tech. Mild &  efficient shaver!

Kinda was in shock when he first showed it to me. Overall the big brush has some damage in the chrome and the boar brush is unusable unless I fix the handle might have to look into it. Depending how it goes I might take it on my deployment.

I went to the Rose Bowl flea Market in Pasadena. I saw 3 Gillette razors, so upset I didn't budget more. Maybe next time!?

Rosebowl swapmeet rules of engagement: bring every penny you can and if you see any on the ground PICK THEM UP just in case.
Carry lots of water, the refreshment stands chew into your buying power. Avoid dealers who say GOD BLESS YOU with a smile at the start
of negotiations. They are old scratch himself in disguise. Wear sunglasses. It saves your eyes and encounters with testosterone rich young boys with EVEN YOUNGER half naked girlfriends. If YOUR girlfriend is half naked  avoid the lady with the retro clothing table being picked over by STEAMPUNKS, the above half naked girls and stylish gay couples. Your pennies will go to a Film Noir hat and rhinestone brooch of a tiger being ridden by another half naked lady from 1938- neither of which she will wear in private for you doing A HALF NAKED RITA HAYWORTH IMITATION.
Keep an eye out for estate sales in Pasadena. They are a treasure trove and the mothers make their daughters get dressed.

LOL! Where was this advice earlier. Thank God I brought extra water and my daughter's wagon. The food court did kill budget. Sunglasses did hide the roving eye. But found the best buy for wife a $120 treadle sewing machine from 1919 for 30 bucks.

I did use the razor Gillette Fat Handle, this morning and it was awesome. As a beginner I like this razor. A mild shave. I did use a Gillette 7'o'clock super stainless blade. It took me 3 passes but it was 3 of the easiest to date. I will say the first pass (WTG) only trimmed my 3 days worth of growth. (3 days of growth is about 2 days of your growth love being Asian sometimes). The 2nd pass (XTG) cleared up all my growth. The third pass (ATG) was clean up and very little at that. 

FYI: I used Bath and Body Works Macca Root Cream with my Satin tip Brush. Tomorrow I will try Strop Shoppe Barberhoppe soap with my boar brush.

I also learned something valuable with this razor. With this new to me razor I took my time shaving this morning. I have a Merkur C42 "1904". I have been nicking myself recently. I do believe it is because I am rushing and using pressure where I shouldn't be. When I switch razors again I will have to pay attention to this.
