Three-piece razors used to be offered in a nice case one could store his razors and blades while traveling.

Have you considered a nice leather coin tray/purse as possible travel case? Any other improvised containers?

That is a great idea. Do you have pictures of the razor inside the container?

Nope, I did not buy it yet, but Gillette Tech (the regular one) will fit along with a bade dispenser. You can also store some blades in the side pocket.

Or you could make your own... This is for the Gillette Travel Tech.

Yeah, it's amazing what a radial arm saw and a dado head can do. The rest is leather and velcro scraps and some (I don't remember) either 5 minute epoxy or cyanoacrylate to hold it to the machined piece and to hold the velcro to the leather. Aluminum would work maybe better and be as easily machined (go easy). Don't get your hands near the blade.

I needed to do something. This is what the original leather case looked like. The pic doesn't do the terrible condition full justice. I didn't trust it.

W/o the stuff in place.

And with everything in place and closed.

I removed the Tech at one point and put a NEW in it. But then I had a change of heart and put the Tech back in along with 2 shims that make the Tech head much more useable for me.

Very Nice. I like the case.

I may have to think about making one of those.

I do now have an Old Fashioned Shaving Kit Bag for Road Trips.

My only problem with it is that I need more room to put all my Travel Stuff in it.
