    Default First DE ever. Need an ID

    I picked up this razor today for five bucks and the pack of Canadian made minora brand blades for two. I'm curious to know anything you guys have to say about the razor, and the blades? I know the razor is a Gillette

    Looks to be Gillette New head ( *very* clean. I might even guess that it is a replate), with a fat tech handle. It seems to be a frankenrazor, but a very clean, nice looking one, and a great buy at 5 bucks.

    I took autosol and micromesh to it. It didn't look that clean this afternoon!

    Cleaned up really nice, great buy at 5 dollars. This might help you track down some info: Gillette Date Codes for Safety Razors and Blades

    Good luck!

    The handle is from the Gillette fat handle tech, probably dating from the 1930s. The shave head is the Gillette New head probably nickle plated by Bull Mastiff. It's a good combination.
