1956 Gillette Diplomat Razor w Case All Original


1956 Gillette Diplomat Razor w Case All Original
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  The Diplomat is a TTO (Twist to Open) razor and was produced between 1953 and 1956. 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. The razor is in "MINT" condition with no 
wear and appears to have never been used. The razor case is also in "MINT" condition 
there are no tares inside or scratches or gouges on the outside.  The outside of the 
case still holds all of the gold embossing.

  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. 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:
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.
