    Sounds more like a razor description rather than a make or model. It would help if you had more info of what you're looking for.

    yea, they make all kinds of combinations of heads and handles both new production and vintage. Your question is way to general.

    As has been stated, the description is a little vague.

    However, the Long/Short comb description is specifically used with regards to the Gillette NEW razors. They came in two variants - the long comb and the short comb. The heads were otherwise similar. The short comb NEW is a little more aggressive in use than the long comb.

    Here's a SHORT comb NEW:

    Here's a LONG comb NEW:

    As you can see, the long comb NEW teeth turn down a ways at the end of the tooth.

    The Long comb NEW is more common.

    In addition, Gillette had many more NEW models (the Deluxe, etc). So it's pretty confusing.
