No.2 1930 SELF SHARPENING RONSON RAZOR


No.2 1930 SELF SHARPENING RONSON RAZOR 
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  This Ronson Razor is in very good++ vintage condition. The razors head lifts 
and then pivots so you can resharpen the blade in the palm of your hand using 
the roller on the backside of the razor. This American made Ronson Safety 
Razor will give you many great shaves for years to come!!!

  This complete Ronson set is highly sought after in the razor collecting 
world, especially one in this wonderfully preserved condition. The razor 
functions as perfect as it did decades ago; furthermore, it has maintained 
it's distingushed beauty. This great vintage collectible set also comes with a
silver blade case which is in mint condition.

  The liner of the hinged lid of the Original case reads: this razor; "Shaves 
and Sharpens." One side of the razor head is typical for shaving but the 
other side has a roller that would sharpen the opposing side of the blade. 
Unscrewing the lower section of the handle “unlocks” it so the upper knurled 
section can be depressed and the top of the head can rotate to turn the 
blade over. To remove the blade you remove the round knurled screw from the 
top so the plate can be removed. 

  The name is on top plate and on the underneath side of the head it shows 
that it was made by the Ronson Products Co. with patents dating it to 1925. 
It comes in its original case with a molded velvet like fabric liner for the 
razor to rest in. It also has the metal holder that would hold additional 
blades.

  The razor is in perfect condition with no wear to the plating. It measures 
about 3 ¼” in length and the head measures about 1 ¾” wide. The case is in 
very good+ condition with almost no wear and measures about 4 3/8” long and 
2 3/8” wide.

1953 Gillette Superspeed Razor w Blades


1953 Gillette Superspeed Razor w Blades
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  1953 GILLETTE SUPER-SPEED DOUBLE EDGE SAFETY RAZOR IN VERY GOOD+ CLEAN WORKING 
CONDITION. THE RAZOR MEASURES 3 1/4 INCHES IN LENGTH & IS MADE IN THE USA. 
A ONE PIECE TWIST TO OPEN RAZOR, TWISTING THE BOTTOM OF THE RAZOR OPENS THE 
HEAD. THE RAZOR USES DOUBLE EDGE BLADES. THERE IS A DATE CODE OF Y-2 
INDICATING the second quarter of 1951.  The razor weighs in at 54g and feels 
very good in the hand.  There is no plate loss or rust on this great razor
which will give many fantastic shaves in the future. Also included with this 
great find is an unopened pack of Topaz Platinum DE Blades just to get you 
started.

  The TTO Superspeed was Gillette's main fixed blade model from 1947 until 
well into the 1970s at the least. The specimens from '47 through '51 have no 
date codes on the underside of the head. These are the original classic 
Superspeeds. They are extremely well made, and are fairly mild shavers. In 
the early '50s they changed the design a bit, making the turning knob at the 
base slightly flared, and changing the knurling pattern. During this period 
they also produced versions with a blue turn knob ( milder than the regular 
one ) and one with a red knob ( more aggressive ). The regular '50s flare 
tip is also a fairly mild shaver although perhaps a shade more aggressive 
than the original model. 

  The build quality remained high, although not perhaps quite as high as the 
original. In the early '60s the razor was redesigned. The geometry of the 
head was changed, it became a bit more aggressive and the build quality 
started to go down hill, although it was still quite decent. By this period 
they were focusing more on their adjustable models.  Pretty much all the 
Superspeeds are good shavers, but the ones from 1948 through the late '50s 
are the very best I think. Starting in 1951, Gillette put date codes on the 
razor heads. These codes will tell you the year and the quarter in which a 
given razor was manufactured.

1930s Cooper Safety Razor and Blades in Original Box

 1930s Cooper Safety Razor and Blades in Original Box
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  This highly collectible Cooper Safety Razor is in good+ vintage condition.  
It is a nice collection piece or would make a great daily shaver.  The razor 
is in good working order.  The handle feels great in hand and the balance is 
nice. It has very light wear with minor scratches. 
  
  As can be seen in the pictures there is a tiny spot of plate loss 
on one side of the head.  This Cooper razor uses regular double edge razor 
blades unlike its predecessors which only used blades made by Cooper.  It 
was manufactured by the Cooper Safety Razor Corp. of Brooklyn, NY.  It was 
patented in 1932.  The Cooper trademark was first used in 1932, but I 
haven't been able to establish how long the products were on the market. The
razor comes in the Original box of purchase, which as you can see is
a bit worn from time.  It also comes with the NOS box of unopened Cooper
razor blades.

  The Cooper turns out to be a fine shaver, gets very close to the 
skin and lets you hear every whisker being mowed down.  The razor is made of 
die cast metal and not brass but a nice die cast job it was.  Some complain 
that the seams on the handle are cheap, perhaps, however, look at most of the 
Cooper razors that occasionally pop up for sale, no cracks on those handles! 

  Those seams act as a stress reducer, they have more "give & take" than a 
hard metal handle.  I get fine shaves, very close indeed and the razor is 
not picky about what you feed it.  It is no problem at all using a regular 
double edge blade.
