So, I thought I would create a guide with an indication of how rare each Gillette Adjustable razor type is today.The quantity numbers associated with each model type are a gut feel on my part based on various information I have gleaned over the years. The types of information include discussions with other collectors and in a large part the frequency with which each model type comes up for availability on eBay. If there are a bunch for sale every day, there must be a lot of them. If they only come up for sale once every 6 months then not so much. The model types with an asterisk after the quantity indicates I could be crazy wrong. These numbers have a “less than” symbol which says yes it is true (as well as I can guess) but maybe not so close or accurate. The numbers with an asterisk could be off by up to 4 or 5 times. That is, for example, the number of actual Slims that exist could indeed range from < 100,000 to < 500,000. Sorry I cannot be more accurate. P&G is not being forthcoming with their actual historical production numbers from Gillette, so it is hard for me to gauge. I am investigating other methodologies to approximate the numbers based on publicly available information. I will update the quantities and footnotes to the methodology as I get more accurate guesses. Take it for what it is worth… my best guess.
