1918 WW1 US ARMY GILLETTE 3 PIECE SAFETY RAZOR 
ALL MY ITEMS ARE SOLD FOR BEST OFFER!
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE! 
  
  Prorerty of US ARMY is stamped on the underside of the bottom blade plate.  The razor is in 
almost MINT condition.  The razor appears to have been well cared for and kept very clean and 
shiney by the previous owner.  The razor shows the usual crack in the handle.  These razors are 
notorious for stress cracks.  Most of the handles all have cracks in a few places, some worse than 
others.  Included with this fine vintage razor is one used gillette three hole blade.  Please keep 
in mind
, this vintage item is 90+ years old and had seen action in WWI, it has been used and it 
is not new.  This fine razor has a seriel #G199467.


  This great razor has one very small stress crack in the upper part of the handle.  This razor 
would make a great addition to any collection.  Please make sure to look at the pics carefully as 
they are part of the description.  In America, it wasn't fashionable to be clean shaven until WW1.
The reason for this is that it is very difficult to wear a gas mask correctly if you have a beard 
or moustache(the mask won't seal properly), and that men in the military were thus forced to 
become clean shaven.  Apparently this caught on back home too due to World War I looking up to and 
admiring the soldiers.  And thus it became fashionable to be clean shaven.

PRICE $85.00 OBO

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.
