Gillette Techmatic
#1
The Gillette Techmatic is from the 1960s. It sports a band blade that advances with the turn of a lever. It is also an adjustable razor. It was the first razor in space, I believe. It is also a fine shaver.

I believe it's what I shaved with in High School in the late 60s   Smile

I tried it when it first came out. I was not impressed at the time, but I really like it now.

How hard is it to find replacement blade bands?

You can find them on eBay. I think I got my techmatic in a lot and later found a band cartridge on eBay. The shave is very efficient and comfortable. They have 10 blades. Too bad they don't make them anymore. It is great to have for historical reasons, and it does give a great shave.

I know that I had one at the time. I don't remember much about it so it couldn't have been a memorable shave.

I agree, it's interesting for the historical significance.
