1956 Mint Gillette Red Tip W Case and Blades
Richards Razors; Make Me an Offer I Can't Refuse!

Gillette Super Speed Razor with Red Tip in Mint Condition. 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, Shiny and Free of
Any Brassing or Plating Loss and Shows No Dings or Wear. The Red Tip Exhibits
Miniscule Paint Loss Which Can Be Seen in the Pictures, This Great Vintage
Razor Still Retains 99.9% of Its' Original Paint. Please Be Sure to Look at
the Pictures Carefully As They Are Part of the Description.

This Razor Is an Excellent Collectible And/or Would Make a Great Daily
Shaver. The Doors Twist to Open Easily to Exchange Blades. This Safety Razor
Is in Mint Condition, the Case Also in Mint Condition Shows No Ware Which Would Normally Be
Expected with the Razor and Case over 50 Years Old, Made by Gillette Safety
Razor Company Also Included in This Great Vintage Set Is a Container of Gillette
Super Blue Blades, I Have No Idea How Many Blades in It but the Container
Looks Almost 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 Five 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 Continue to Work for a Lifetime with Proper Care.
