1955 MINT Gillette Diplomat Safety Razor w Original Case and Blades


1955 MINT Gillette Diplomat Safety Razor w Original Case and Blades


  The 1955 A-3 Diplomat is a TTO (Twist to Open) razor and was produced between 1953 and 1955.  
This razor is 24 ct. Gold plated with a top coat of lacquer to protect the gold, as it is a very 
soft metal.  The set comes with 10 Gillette Blue Blades in the original dispenser.  The razor is in 
excellent condition with no wear and appears to have never been used.  The razor case is in almost 
mint condition.  The outside bottom of the case has a small tear.  There is a small part of the 
inside of the case that shows minimal soiling which will clean up easily.  There are no tares 
inside.


  One way to identify this beauty is the handle, which is thicker than the Super Speed, it is fluted 
and completely knurled the entire length from neck to knob unlike the Aristocrat of the same 
years which had a smooth band just above the knob.  The Diplomat is 3.25” in overall length and 
weighs in at 70 grams.  The blade gap of this razor is .64mm, which is the same as the Gillette 
New Razor.  One other thing to note is that this razor came with the notched center bar to accept 
the use of the Blue Blade dispenser packs produced at the time.  The Diplomat came in a very 
handsome leather clad case that was embossed with the Gillette crest in 24 ct Gold Leaf.


  This razor is one of my favorites, as I own another I occasionally use it.  I get a fantastic 
shave from it, very comfortable and clean.  There is just something about shaving with a 24 ct. 
Gold razor that just seems to make the shave that much more luxurious.  Now you have the 
opportunity to buy a Gillette Diplomat, I highly recommend you jump on it, you won't be seeing
another anytime soon.

Terms of Sale:

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.
