1966 Gillette Techmatic Band Blade Razor L4
Here we have a 1966 Gillette Techmatic Band Blade Razor, L4,
the shaving kit is in excellent condition, included are the
original instructions, case and razor. The case is in very good
condition with a few scratches to the top of the case. The razor
is also in very good condition with nothing broken and appears
to work well.
This razor was considered high tech for its time because you
did not touch the blade and it was single-sided. The blades were
in a cartridge. It was essentially a long band blade, which you
changed by clicking a forward button. Schick Super Chromium
cartridges will fit the Gillette also.
Razor on Apollo 11:
This shaving equipment was carried aboard the Apollo 11 mission
by astronaut Michael Collins as part of his personal preference

were permitted one small bag for personal or small items of
significance they wished to carry into space.
