1956 Gillette Red Tip Razor w Case and Blades






1956 Gillette Red Tip Razor 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 NO excessive 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 Blue Blades, I have no idea how many blades are in it but the container looks full. 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.

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
