All the OLD and New Improved razors came with just their standard open comb. The early ABC Canadian made razors had teeth that were made slightly different but that was peculiar to that model only. The New razors that had a separate head could be had with a long comb, short comb, or long comb Deluxe, which had a heavy baseplate with a flat bottom. The Deluxe also came in two slightly different versions, one with 15mm between the teeth on the bottom, and one with 17mm between the teeth, the top looked the same on both, just the angle of the cut between the teeth was different. The long comb and short comb had completely different baseplates, not just different length teeth.

hey peeps so I don't have that much of a collection and Im a noob but I fancy getting something that's vintage and by the brand Gillette, whenever I've checked out eBay I can't tell what's a good razor and what's a good going rate...

so can someone let me know what models are good and what to look out for and the sort of going price for then so I don't pay over the odds for it, any help would be appreciated many thanks Saj
Anything made before 1950, and pre 1940 is even better.

Slim , fatboy and 109 super adjustable black beauty are my favourites , aristocrat, flair tip , open comb ( too aggressive for me ) , single ring and couple of techs
After a 84 super adjustable, gold super adjustable and a red tip and (that's) me never buying another razor , honest , hand on heart
That's Flare tip, and the type of safety guard doesn't affect so called "aggression".
