The Gillette Tech Razor was a popular standard from the late
1930s, through the 50s, and into the 60s and 70s. They were issued to the armed
forces during WW II, and were often distributed by the Red Cross. It is
generally considered a milder razor, yet it is extremely popular among all
sorts of present day, retro wet shavers.
This particular razor is dated between 1941 and 1946. How do
we know? Techs made before 1946 have triangular slots in
the base plates. This razor has these slots. This razor also comes with a bakelite, plastic handle. This is indicative of the war years, when this type handle and the triangular slots are matched together.
Included in this
