    Ein toller kleiner Rasierer der mit neuer Factory - Nickelbeschichtung glänzt, einzig die Verschraubung ist etwas ausgeschlagen - trotzdem ein wundervoller Rasierer !

    Wonderful shaver

    Absolutely love this thing, wonderful mild shaver, perfect with Feather blades. Not as "meaty" built as the english version, would have given 5 stars. Highly recommended

    Fast shipment, good razor

    I'm very satisfied with the razor - clean as new. In fact, this is the second razor I had purchase. The first was a ball end tech. The razor was shipped the same day and delivered within two weeks (GMT +8).

    J'ai reçu ce formidable rasoir en seulement 8 jours en France. Je rêvais d'avoir un Gillette Tech dans ma collection, et maintenant c'est fait.
    Pour un rasoir de 70 ans, il paraît tout neuf ! Le revêtement est parfait. Il va avoir une ou plusieurs autres vies en France maintenant.
    Le rasage est très doux et très efficace.
    J'en recommanderai un autre pour mon anniversaire en juin.
    Félicitations à toute l'équipe pour son travail !

    Took a chance on the Fat Handle Tech. Now is one of my favorite razors! Light weight mild and a thin head which works well around the nose. Gillette quality all around!
