1949 Gillette Super Speed Safety Razor in Original Box
This razor and box are in very good+ vintage condition. You will be proud to own this set.
The Super-Speed One Piece hit the shaving scene in 1947. Like previous one- piece razors, this
model at first had no "notched" positioning bar to hold the blade as it was pulled from the new
dispenser. In early 1948, an Improved Super-Speed with a notched bar was brought out to aid in
loading the razor by the new "improved" dispenser. Safety was stressed as the reason for these
improvements; there was no longer need to touch the blade to load the razor.
These early Super-Speed models were put up in a cardboard case with a plastic "10" Blue Blade
dispenser, all for only $1.00. These Super-Speeds were nickel-plated. The Super-Speed weighed in at
1.9 oz with a blade gap of .62mm.
For 1949, the Super-Speed was put up for the first time in a Styrene "display" case. The bottom of
the case was a solid color plastic, while the flip-top was clear. Gillette did not start date codes
in these models until 1951 (W); models earlier than 1951 will not be date stamped.

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.
