"Nice find. That's a Gillette Tech, and it was made sometime between 1938 and 1945. In 1946 they changed the shape of the slots in the base plate. Yours are triangular; the later ones are oblong. After 1950 they started putting date codes on…"
"I can't think of any cleaning products geared toward men, but I would find pine-scented agreeable. Smells like the woods (in theory; how often do scented things really smell like what they're supposed to be?). Other than that, I'd…"

"Was talking with the wife about the food/water weight issue and she came back with this idea.
Honestly it's not bad, I could haul over most terrain and between it and the double wide running stroller we could give the kids a break from…"
