And just in case you ever wondered, for styling his hair, Elvis was said to have used rose oil hair tonic on top, Butch wax in front, and Vaseline on the sides.

I have 2 techmatics, might even have one cased.

I'll let them go to TSN members for 1/2 price of the Elvis one, so we'll say $600 and shipping is on me Biggrin

Being the curious sort I have just spent a good fifteen minutes on the web trying to figure out what a Techmatic is/was...

...to me it looks like an over designed, under engineered attempt from Gillette to lock the customers to a single source for blades; just like they had before the patents on DE blades expired, and just like they got back when they started making multiblade cartridges.

Also, it seems like a lot of people online think they give a rotten shave - I can see why Elvis gave his away.
