For those that have been following the new season of The Walking Dead, Negan, played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, shaves with a rather odd razor to apparently match the comic book version;

That looked very dull to me, also kamisori grip on the poor straight. What's with always against the grain nonsense, no wonder he's a loon - all that skin irritation :lol:

When I saw this thread, the shaving scene from the movie The Color Purple came to mind immediately. Such an intense scene. Also brave of the guy to allow her to shave him with a straight, considering the way he treated her!

Amazing that the brand can be a tourist attraction. Hopefully they have some factory prices there as well...

Been meaning to find this for a while. Sorry for the poor resolution, just took screenshots off my PC.

James Bond - Goldfinger

That's a satellite tracker that he pulls from the handle of his Slim. Not a Flash Disk!

Accept for the Gillette Slim Adjustable Sean Connery used Bond also made use of other shaving gear. Bond (Roger Moore) used a Shick Injector razor in the movie Live and Let Die.

Also in the Bond novel On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Ian Fleming mentions Eucris, a fragrance by Geo. F. Trumper. In the movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service one-time Bond George Lazenby used a Gillette Open comb razor as a knuckle-duster to fend off a would be assassin. Floris No.89 Eau de Toilette was also another personal favourite of Ian Flemming and was mentioned in the novels Moonraker and Diamonds are Forever.
A Hoffritz safety razor was used in The Man with the Golden Gun, Octopussy and the Living Daylights.

In Skyfall Bond (Daniel Craig) was also shaved by Mis Moneypenny with a Dovo Solingen Straight Edge razor.

There's a scene right at the end of the trailer for Kingsman 2 that has Colin Firth halfway through a shave with a DE razor.
