Tech? Did you mention Gillette Tech? I just happen to have five of my favorite, which I will post later. I owned about 10 at different times, because they were either too mild or duplicates. For now, I will show my latest Tech acquisition, complete with mismatched case and me eating soups and stews for two weeks.
Gillette Hybrid Tech - Made in England and is a cross between the Raised Flat Bottom and the Flat Bottom Tech.
Great HT!!!! And wonderful to see that you also have it in the bakelite case.
I honestly believe that this is a matched set. I know very well that there is a religious feud going on between people who don’t believe that the HT ever came originally in a bakelite case (because we have no advertisements or other to prove it). And then there is the rest of us who either own one (me, you, at least a few others on B&B) or have seen one online. I can point to too many ‘mismatches’ to believe that this is a mistake.
The HT is my favorite shaver of all, even outshining the British Aristocrats.
Here are the 3 case guises that it came in. I owned all 3 at one time but have since resold one of them (the one in the front). It was my best wildfind ever - I was sitting one evening in my car waiting to pick up my daughter and went on the UK ebay. And there it was, marked as a “Very nice Gillette Tech” in original case, bladebank and everything is near mint condition. For a buy-it-now price of 65 GBP I almost wet myself and my hand was literally shaing went it went through the PayPal order on my phone...
On top I also own a wonderful US postwar frankenrazor on thin handle, as well as a prewar triangular slot. I love Techs
