RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  This razor is a B-2, 1956, twist to open safety razor by Gillette. It is in very good+ Vintage
condition. The 1956 Gillette has the distinctive red handle tip. The razor's butterfly doors
open & close smoothly! There is NO loss of color on the red tip what so ever. Also included are two 
packages of NOS, unopened vintage blades, this 1956 Gillette is nickel plated and built to last many 
lifetimes. It has minimal plate loss, just a slight bit on the underside of the bottom blade plate, 
really unnoticeable, I had to use a magnifying glass to see it, also there appears to be a water spot
 on the bomb bay doors which should polish off easily, I would normally do that myself but I didn't 
have the time so I will leave it to the buyer.   Please be sure to look at the pics. This razor is 
shave ready or a wonderful collectors item. 

  This razor has a reputation for giving great results, due to its size and weight which gives
great balance and makes shaving an even better experience. It is made of brass and plated with
nickel. The Red Tip Super Speed was the heaviest of the three Gillette Super Speeds with a blade
exposure of 0.64 mm (most aggressive) with a weight of 65g.

  In the mid 1950s, Gillette made 3 versions of it's Super Speed Twist To Open double edge safety 
razor to suit different beard/skin types and different preferences. The Blue Tip was known as the 
"Light" model, the Silver the Medium, and the Red Heavy. The Red Tip is by far my favorite Super 
Speed model, and one of my favorite Gillette razors. It has a nice weight in the hand, although it's 
the most agressive of the three superspeed models it truly provides an exceptionally smooth shave.
