1. Gillette #77/88 2 piece New open comb. Made in England and one of the absolute best shaving razors ever made. It has been re-plated in bright nickel. Not used since re-plating. Comes in the brown Bakelite case which is in perfect condition. $125.00 SOLD

2. Ikon highly polished early razor. I do not remember the model though it is very similar to the Gillette Tech in style. Very collectable. Bulldog handle is also Ikon and was part of the original razor. Smooth areas also highly polished. I may have a cardboard box, but probably not its original container. 101 grams in weight. $175.00  SOLD

Was curious as to the provenance of this razor. See http://www.bruceonshaving.com/2010/09/22...t-started/ and this photo

Unusual and very nice piece. 111 grams. $120.00 SOLD

I don't know how they became lined but the Ikon and the Robart are still for sale. The BRW and the Gillette 77 plus the ATT handle has been sold so far.

This is the start of selling a very large collection of very high end, desirable and collectable razors over the next few weeks. I figure the brothers at Shave Nook should see them first before the Bay. There will be things like a complete collection of Gillette Rocket Razors including examples of almost every model. All the Aristocrats and red tip, blue tip, aluminum etc. all the very hard to find examples. #66, #16, #15, #21 all of the English Gillette razors that have been so good. Other gems will be complete examples of Gillette New heads, flat bottoms. raised flat bottom, English Travel Techs maybe a Belmont, maybe Hybrid tech, a Senator, an Aristocrat Jr.Oh and several good wills. Be on the lookout for them as it starts. In addition there will be individually collectable razors like Kirby Beard, Servus, Le Coq, The Sticky, many Muhle, several Merkur and over 85 slants of all varieties in the best condition. The polished Weber among others. Among others would be a perfect condition Gillette Big Boy. But I get ahead of myself.

I am taking a new direction in shaving that emphasizes the new SE type of shaving with the Colonial General, Ikon, ATT SE1 Bamboo, the Rocknel 50, and the Asylum Rx to name a few. Also, adjustable shaving still holds a fascination. I find generally the newer razors deliver better and more comfortable shaves than some of their historic forefathers. Also, the collection just got away from me in terms of size with something approaching 300 units. Just too many to enjoy so time to put them back in service. I plan to introduce about 10 items a week until interest is lost, or I run of of energy, or product. I actually wound up loving the shave of all of them for particular reasons. I think it had to do by developing into a competent shaver where you can do decently with anything.

I have just started wet shaving this past January and I have dedicated this year to using traditional two and three piece razors. Come Christmas I plan on asking for my first TTO Gillette, so I be watching very closely. That being said, I can't believe you are going to sell your "big boy". I have a few extra jobs lined up for this fall and I will put a couple of extra bucks away for a crack at it. Good luck with your sales and take care.

Gorgeous razors!  I'm especially fond of the iKon Tech clone, but then again I'm a Tech addict.  Currently in the stable are a Canadian pre-war, an American post-war, and a British Hybrid Tech.  It's doubtful the iKon would shave any better than the last of these.........

still tempting, but don't really have the funds...............Arrrgh!

Beautiful razors!
Glad the #77 is gone, but I keep telling myself I need to find a Weber before I buy another razor, anyway.
