Gillette Adjustable safety razor:
A vintage Gillette Adjustable safety razor. It´s a butterfly system razor. Which means you open the razor for the blade by turning the bottom of the handle and the wings will open for placing the razor blade. The cool thing about this razor is the adjustment ring which is labeled 1 -9 and by turning it you put more pressure on the blade and change the angle of it. So you can change the razor to be more aggressive or being more smooth. Good ones have all the chrome and the numbers are still black.
The razor even got famous 1964 in James Bond´s – Goldfinger, when he shaves in the plane and activates a tracking device.
This weekend we did a 2 day trip to the Rätikon/Montafon region, to climb the Schesaplana (2964 m). The weather conditions turned worse during the first day with heavy wind, rain and fog at the summit. After we crossed the glacier we were welcomed with a warm soup at the Mannheimer Hütte and life was good again. Next day weather was at its best and we walked back via the Leibersteig (which was cleaned of snow just the day before – not for the faint hearted) to Brand. A short trip but felt like a holiday. Perfect balance between adventure and fun.
Here my collection of Asics Mexico 66 sneakers in yellow. For me one of the most comfortable and most stylish sneakers of all time. A couple of years ago the production was discontinued but right now the supply of new ones is secured.
Red Wing 1908 boots – 100 Anniversary Model:
My first Red Wing boot, a 1908 moc toe, the 100th anniversary model. Bought at Manufactum about 2 years ago. If I´m getting it right the Label say´s produced in 2005. Manufactum sold them for a great price at about 180 Euros if I remember it right. Compared to the other vintage/classic models at a standard of about 260 Euros.
