Ranger Tech

Manufacturer: Gillette

Dates in Production: 1941 (no endcaps) & 1946 (with endcaps)

Description: Has a fine diamond texture on upper and lower handle, one horizontal smooth band just above the TTO knob that is stamped "PAT. NOS. ON PKG.". On the underside, top: "REG. U.S. PAT. OFF." and bottom: "[Gillette diamond] MADE IN U.S.A." No date code.

Notes of Interest: The Ranger Tech originally went into production for the holiday season in 1941; however, production was canceled with the start of WWII. Gillette went into wartime production of blades and 3 piece Techs for American troops. When the war was over, Gillette resumed production of the TTO razors; but the Ranger had evolved into the Super Speed.
