Long combs only and they’re quite smooth shavers. Not as mild as a modern Merkur open comb and more efficient but still not a shark. As to other Gillette NEW types, I cannot say due to lack of experience for the only other Gillette NEW I have tried was the silver plated #77 which was blatantly bitey.

I also have an English Minora NEW type somewhere which looks outwardly similar to the ‘7’ but the baseplate has little ‘T’ style slots to hold the blade in place and its significantly more aggressive. Too much for this pretty boy…:ROFLMAO:

So you know my post with the pic of the two new long combs and two old gillettes, one of the gillettes old had crocked teeth, I was being gentle with a metal ruler listening to @pjgh advice and I ended up breaking the tooth and was like f*** this and threw it away lmao

Nah seriously I threw it away more because that was the one with the most damage and dirt etc even after a good scrub tbh

I want to get a short comb new gillette and would like to get the gillette toggle but I saw one one ebay the other day was like about £140 odd quid with like a fair few hours left till auction was over too

Toggle will be mega-bucks!

Yeah, bent teeth are a mess. Some razors respond to heating up first, like dunking in boiling water ... or use a butane lighter (crack torch). Bad luck!

tbf I'm useless at messing with fragile small things, too heavy handed, clumsy and don't have the patience tbh lol
