Has anyone ever seen on of these 4-Piece Gillettes before? With the two-piece aluminium handle?

Neither have I. Why? Because it's not a Gillette... It's a GILLETTIN!!!

I have seen four piece Gillettes, they are fairly common, I have also seen Gillettin razors, but I don't remember the handles. That one is in nice shape, have you shaved with it?

Gelletin? Never hear of them either!

I have several 4-piece Gillettes; they do shave rather well, although the plating on all of them is quite thin.

But this “Gillettin” (Chinese??) I haven’t tried. Only picked it up yesterday. A lady at a flea market gave it to me Smile

Gilletin is arguably an infringement of the Gillette trademark.  Does this razor look like a Gillette model?

Nope, not as far as I am aware.

Does not resemble a Gillette, I seem to remember someone saying they were made in India, but don't quote me on that.  Biggrin

Where did it come from? Is it like those "Rollex" watches (with two L's) hawked by street vendors in Korea?
