Came across this old beater locally today and gave it a quick polish. Thanks to someone on another forum I now know it is a variant of the Goodwill model.

Once cleaned I loaded it with a vintage British made Wilkinsons Sword blade, face lathered with Palmolive soap and did a 3 pass test shave. Very close and very smooth shave from that combination. Looks like it is going to be one of my favourite DEs to use even though it may not look like much.

Nice find and a beautiful razor , a Canadian Goodwill #175 I think , they seem to be one of the  rarer Goodwill models, I looked a long time before finding one , the cap makes the razor look pretty classy .

Am I the only fan of older beat up gillettes? I just love the look of something that's been loved and used. 

Great find!
