and came across this.........
   
   
   
   
A Canadian Special Goodwill #175 c1931. I had forgotten about this little razor.
I never seem to see much about these, which is surprising as they gave them away with a pack of blades.
I was wondering if any of you had/have had, or shaved with one.
I should add that I think it a great shaver, efficient without being too aggressive.

Very cool. A most interesting blade alignment setup it uses. Never seen anything quite like it before.

That is very nice and different looking. But it still retains that nice Gillette slot that aligns the blade perfectly. Use it well.

Well went through a collecting phase and was sorting out the ones I don't use or have duplicates of, so I can sell some off when the Christmas cash flow has got better.

On another note had a shave with it last night. It cut down 6 days growth in 2 passes and a quick touch up. BBS results, no nicks or razor burn. Considering she is 81 years old still a great razor and one to keep.........Biggrin

Looks great condition too.

I have a US Goodwill. I put the head on a BRW handle and it shaves great. The relatively small footprint of the head makes manuverability and ease of use very nice.
