Available is a reproduction of the sought after Khaki Set. In WWI these sets were given out to troops and sold to civilians. The cases are now difficult to find, and vary in condition. These reproductions allow modern consumers to enjoy the rustic vintage feel and function of the important military set.
Manufactured for durability, function, and style. The core is constructed with fiberboard, covered in water resistant fabric. The khaki fabric is glued on well, and will take splashings from the sink, although complete saturation is not advised. The green elastic bands are securely fastened providing a place for razor blades, the head of the double edged razor, and the handle of the razor. Two fabric enclosures go over the insides, providing that standard Khaki look and adding security to your razor and blades! The set closes using durable “Baby Dot” snap closures by Scovill.
The set measures just over 4″ wide, and 2-1/2 inches deep. Use this case as a dependable travel set or use it to display your Gillette Ball End Old Type DE Razor!
This set is the perfect gift for any guy interested in the WWI era of history! Add a Ball End Razor from Gillette and a pack of DE blades with your WWI repica Khaki case. You can't go wrong with this awesome traveller and thoughtful gift! Click here to view this Set with added Razor and Blades!

History: The Gillette Old Type was the original razor head produced by Gillette Safety Razor Co. It featues open comb design with two stabilizer pins that keep the blade straight. These heads are known for their smooth yet aggressive shaves. These were the same model as featured in the WWI Khaki sets.

I like most things about this razor travel case. My vintage Gillettes find securely within and the case tightly snaps together. There is no danger of anything falling out if the case is used as intended. My only critical comment is on the materials. I think the original was made of heavy duty canvas with leather reinforcements...at least that is how I recall the one example I saw while in the military. It is a good product...that can be made better. I would buy again.

I just love this case! Well made with plenty of room for 2 & 3 piece razors. I can even fit a razor blade case! Absolutely gorgeous. I chose the black elastic strap version. Ya can't go wrong getting one of these.

Regardless of coming from a circa WWI design, this sturdy little razor and blade case is a timeless product perfect for camping, travel and deployments. It is sturdy and functional, and it even looks the part. Nice kit.

This travel case seems a little less sturdy than I expected, on the other hand, I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting. I do wish the retaining loops were elastic. It looks good, but I have not traveled with it yet. Until it has a few cross country road trips under its belt, I'm reserving any further judgement.

All in all its a nice little case, Just with they had used elastic so you could store a Fat Handled Tech and not just ball ends. Would hold blades and head a little tighter. I understand that it meant to be a reproduction. I just travel a lot and was hoping for a case, that it would hold one of my Fat Handles.
