Vintage 1951 Gillette Super Speed Safety Razor and Box



RICHARDS RAZORS
Vintage 1951 Gillette Super Speed Safety Razor and Box

  Gillette Super Speed safety razor with a date code of W-1, Twist to open, uses regular
double edge blades.

  VINTAGE 1951 GILLETTE SUPER-SPEED DOUBLE EDGE SAFETY RAZOR IN GOOD+ CLEAN WORKING CONDITION.
THE RAZOR MEASURES 3 1/4 INCHES IN LENGTH & IS MADE IN THE USA.  A ONE PIECE TWIST TO OPEN RAZOR,
TWISTING THE BOTTOM OF THE RAZOR OPENS THE HEAD.  THE RAZOR USES DOUBLE EDGE BLADES.  THERE IS A
DATE CODE OF W-1 INDICATING 1951.
 
  IN THE 1950's, THE GILLETTE SUPER-SPEED RAZORS WERE VERY POPULAR AMONG MOST ALL WET SHAVERS.
SUPER-SPEEDS ARE NICELY BALANCED AND HAVE AN EXCELLENT HEAD DESIGN.  THE 1950's STYLE SUPER-SPEEDS
ARE HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER AND ARE CONSIDERED BY MANY WET SHAVERS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST ONE PIECE RAZORS
THAT WAS MADE BY GILLETTE.

  THE 1951 SUPER-SPEED HAS THE NOTCHED CENTER BAR , WHICH I BELIEVE THIS TO BE.  THE RAZOR STILL
SHINES AND WOULD MAKE A VERY GOOD DAILY SHAVER, WITH EXPERT CLEANING LEFT TO THE BUYER.

  THE STORAGE BOX IS IN VERY GOOD+ CONDITION, THE INSIDE NOT BEING RIPPED, TORN OR WORN OUT.
THE OUTSIDE OF THE CASE IS IN ALMOST MINT CONDITION AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PICTURES.

#2 1941 Vintage Gillette Ranger Tech safety razor in original box.











RICHARDS RAZORS
#2 1941 Vintage Gillette Ranger Tech safety razor in original box.

  According to my research: The Gillette Ranger Tech originally went into production for the holiday
season in 1941 however production was canceled due to the outbreak of WWII. Gillette then went into
wartime production of blades and 3 piece techs for the troops.
 
  When the war was over Gillette resumed production of the Twist To Open razors but the Ranger
had evolved into the Super Speed.  No Gillette collection is complete without a Ranger Tech.

  The center bar is unnotched, and the 1941 was made with no end caps.  TTO (Twist To Open) type, band
above the TTO knob marked: Pat. Nos. On Package. Uses standard double edge blades. Very nice vintage
condition.

  The razor and original box are in great vintage condition, this set is very hard to find these days
and would be a wonderful addition to any collection or as an every day razor.

1966 Gillette Flair Tip Safety Razor L-3 in original box












RICHARDS RAZORS
1966 Gillette Flair Tip Safety Razor L-3 in original box

  Gillette Super Speed Flair Tip razor in the original clear plastic box with a white bottom.
The box and razor show almost no wear.  The razor opens and closes smoothly, handle is silver.
Razor is great shape and has been sanitized with Barbasol and antibacterial soap.
 Included is a plastic Gillette box in great shape.  This razor has a date code of L-3 which denotes
the third quarter of 1966.

  1966 Super Speed was one of the last of the all-metal Super Speeds, the 1966 sported a lower profile
head than all the Gillette TTOs leading up to this mid-sixties model.
Its date code, L-3, indicates that it was manufactured in the 3rd quarter of 1966.  The razor
uses standard double edge blades

The razor is in good working order.  Would make a perfectly functional daily razor and is worth
picking up if you've been looking to add a Flare Tip to your collection.  Opens and closes smoothly
just as a Gillette should.   Sanitized with a germicide agent and shave ready.
