I think the head is from a Gillette NEW pre 1950s and the handle from a "fat" Gillette Tech.
 But I might as well be wrong Tongue

Looks to be a Gillette "New" from the 1930's or so. They made them in multiple handle variations and long and short combs. Please correct me if im wrong.

That's a Gillette new long comb head, mismatched with a Tech fat handle.

The head is from an early-1930's Gillette NEW model Long Comb.  You can tell it's an early one, because there are no patent numbers on the underside of the base plate.

The handle is from a Gillette Heavy "Fat Handle" Tech.

It's a great combination.  Congrats.  Many of those Gillette NEW models had handles that cracked, so it's not uncommon for people to replace the original handles.  In my view, the Fat Handle is a great replacement.

I hope it gives you many great shaves.

Nailed it!  Love the tech fat handle.  They are beautiful.  The long comb is a great shaver.
