    On the left is a google earth image of the Genco factory site in its current condition in Geneva, New York. I'm pretty sure this is the correct site south of Grant Avenue, and I think that may be remnants of the actual building. On the right is the 1917 representation. Someone in the Geneva area should drive over and see if the milling equipment is still there!

    Too late to edit my previous post, but I said Grant Avenue was the address of the factory in Geneva. I should have said Gates Avenue. That's what the aerial photo shows.

    So does the queen of the plain-jane, reliable, inexpensive American shavers deserve a razor club? I think so.

    Here are my three excellent Genco razors. Sorry about the blurry pic.


    1. Genco Registered.
    2. Genco Master Barber.
    3. Genco Army & Navy.

    I got each of them for less than $10, shipped.


    Here's my, probably incomplete, list of Genco models:

    Army & Navy
    B-2?
    Blue Steel
    De Roma
    Easy Aces
    Expert
    Fluid Steel
    Forgemark
    Gold Seal
    Grant
    Head Barber
    Heavy
    Henry's Triumph
    Henry's X
    Henry's XX
    Master Barber
    Master Barber Jr.
    Nubak
    Old Dutch
    President
    Red Cross
    Registered
    Safedge
    Seneca Chief
    Tiger
    Vanadium

    I hope to one day have a complete collection, but as a bit of a cheapskate, I'm not holding my breath.
    I've just noticed the Genco club .. I did think of starting this only I was gonna call it the Geneva Convention

    what a fine collection you have .. I thought I was doing well with 5 or 6

    Geneva Convention is a pretty clever name, I got "Genco Pura" from The Godfather. It was the name of Don Vito's olive oil company.

    That's just a list of Genco models I've seen on ebay, I've only got four of them.
