Manufactured from 1938 through 1973, the Gillette Tech is generally considered to be one of the mildest safety razors you can find. Due to the mildness of the blade exposure, it is well suited to beginners of DE Shaving. Gillete produced several different models of the Tech such as the Ball End, Black Ball End, the Heavy Tech and Travel models. Being a fairly mild razor, it is well known for giving a very smooth and comfortable shave.

The Tech is a well balanced, 3 piece design and usually comes in either a chrome or gold finish. A great advantage to the Gillette Tech razor is that you can usually find them for very little money. There are many still out there in great condition but as with all things vintage, you will come across some that are less than perfect. Luckily, they are pretty easy to restore back to working condition. Overall we don't really think you can go wrong with a Tech. Due to it's price point and blade exposure, it is well suited for beginners or those looking to get started with a vintage DE Razor collection.

    This the perfect beginners razor and may be all one needs for life. This razor is not aggressive and give a nice mild shave and would be good for beginners. I have one that has been revamped in Rhodium which is one of the hardest metals, it is beautiful. The fat handle tech is lighter than the solid handle tech. These razors can be found on eBay. If you want to refinish your tech try the Razor Emporium, they clean and replate in chrome, nickle, rhodium, and gold. There is one other three piece razor that gives a mild shave that is the Merkur 1904/1906 Classic Open Comb razor. The Merkur 1904/1906 Classic with bar is much more aggressive.
