1955 Gillette Red Tip w Case and Blades


1955 Gillette Red Tip w Case and Blades
RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  Gillette Super Speed razor with red tip. TTO knob, Uses regular double edge blades. 
The handle doesn't show any tarnish; as is common with the aluminum handles, and the razor 
head is clean and free of any brassing or plating loss and shows no dings and wear. The red
tip exhibits absolutely no paint loss as well. This razor is a excellent collectible and/or would 
make a great daily shaver. The doors twist to open easily to exchange blades.  This 
safety razor is in "Almost Mint" condition, the case shows a minor bit of vintage ware which is to be
expected with the razor and case that are over 50 years old, made by Gillette Safety Razor Co.  
Also included in this great vintage set is a container of Gillette Super Stainless Steel Blades, I 
have no idea how many blades are in it. 

  The razor has been thoroughly scrubbed, cleaned, boiled 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. 

  1955 Gillette Superspeed red tip double edge safety razor. This razor was a part of the mild, 
medium and aggressive series with the red tip being the aggressive version. These are great lightweight 
shavers with an aluminum handle and a painted red 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.
