1956 Gillette Super Speed Blue Tip B4 in ORIGINAL case
Gillette Super Speed razor with blue tip, mild beard. TTO knob, Uses regular double edge blades.
1956 Gillette Superspeed blue tip double edge safety razor. This razor was a part of the mild,
medium and aggressive series with the blue tip being the mild version. These are great lightweight
shavers with an aluminum handle and a painted blue tip. I believe 1959 may have been the last
year this series was produced. This razor is in perfect working and shaving condition some 50 or more
years later and should continue to work for a lifetime with proper care.
The handle doesn't show any tarnish; as is common with the aluminum handles, the razor
head is clean and free of any brassing or plating loss and shows no dings or gouges.
The blue tip exhibits no paint loss as well. This razor is a nice collectible and/or would make a
great daily shaver. The doors twist to open easily to exchange blades. The set also comes with a
container of vintage gillette blades. You're going to love this razor set
The razor has been thoroughly scrubbed, cleaned, boiled and finally polished and most likely
hasn't seen use in decades.
Gillette built these babies to sell blades so they are built tough and they are also great pieces
of American history that shave better than any gimmicky 5 blade nonsense available today.
This safety razor is in very good+ vintage condition, the case is in servicable condition with
expected vintage wear, made by Gillette Safety Razor Co.

Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description. All sales final.
