Week of British Long Combs

I'm having a week with my British long combs ... Day 5


Routine

Hot Towel
Tabac Shaving Soap
Kent Infinity Silvertex
Gillette Tech Long Comb
Gillette Super Thin (Vintage?) [1]
Hot Rinse, Cold Rinse & Alum Wash
Tabac Aftershave
Tabac EDC

Technique

Bowl & Face Lathered
Three Pass - WTG, XTG & ATG

Impression

I'm sure this is a Frankenrazor, but it's a good one. Absolutely identical in every way to an early Tech except for the long comb and a Gillette Super Thin blade which I think is vintage - help me out, folks, is it?

So ends my week with British Long Combs.

What a great shave and what a great end to the run!

Tomorrow, I'll shave with the Tech equivalent of this razor - absolutely, completely and utterly the same but a solid guard Tech plate instead of the comb.

I'm going to think of this razor as the one that Gillette never made.
