    Default got an old DE!!

    I havent shaved with a DE in over a year. So i was on e-bay dubbing around and got to looking at vintage DE razors,and this 1956 maroon tip Super Speed Gillette caught my eye. I had to have it because thats the year i was born, good excuse to but one!!! It showed up today and i just gave it a ride on my face. The cheeks are BBS 3 passes,up/down/sideways,now the neck i only did a down then up,hard to do a sideways,so the neck and below the jaw is not that great but ok.The neck area is where the STRAIGHT KICKS ASS!!! JMHO

    Nice find, nessmuck. I've been meaning to try one of those out for a while now.

    I actually had a DE shave tonight, too. I have to stop touching my face though, but it's just so smooth....

    Good find. I just bought a DE travel razor in a metal box for trips.One thing people don't realize is that DE blades are CHEAP on ebay. You can get lots of a hundred or so for a song if you keep your eyes open.

    I actually love my (given to me as gift) SE Treet thick handle with stainless steel blades which I got my blades from a medical supply shop online..here in socali that's most where to get deals nowadays 100 for $25 shipped :-)..I usually get 2-3 good shaves..plus you can wipe yer SS blades clean as well..just a thought!..
