    Default Another Razor Id

    I'm looking for any informations about razor on the right hand side. It looks like Tech but it has a different tip. Any thoughts appreciated.

    The heads both look like Old Style Single Rings however the knobs on the bottom of the handle are not a match for that model.
    The older I get, the better I was

    Gentlemen:

    I can only guess the razor is one of the models of the old style Gillette razor. From what I understand, these razors came with some variations. This could be the case. Everything about the two razors is similar except for the ball end.

    Regards,

    As people have already mentioned, both those razors have Gillette 'Old-style' heads. The one on the left has the traditional ball-end Old handle.

    The one on the right has a handle style I haven't seen on a Gillette before. It's most likely that the handle is from another razor brand. Most of these razors (from whichever manufacturer) have the same pitch on the threads on the head-cap, so handles are interchangeable. Very frequently, you'll find razors with mismatched handles (especially as the 'Old-type' razors handles split pretty frequently on the barrel, and so replacement handles were used).

    EDIT: I see now that you're from Poland. If you picked the razor up from an European source, it's almost certain to be a replacement handle.

    There were many, many Gillette-like razors manufactured by various companies in Europe, and the handles would be interchangeable with Gillette heads.

    SECOND EDIT: I just saw your other post, with more pics. Since the barrel of the handle is fused to the comb, I'd say that the razor was a Gillette Single Ring (version of the old-type head). The ball-end on that handle doesn't match with any of the Gillette models I'm aware of, so perhaps it was a makeshift replacement.

    Can't say for sure, though.

    The ball end looks like someone put an acorn knob or thumb screw on it.
