1918 Gillette U.S. Army Razor w NOS Blades - Classified Ad

1918 Gillette U.S. Army Razor w NOS Blades - Classified Ad

1918 Gillette U.S. Army Razor w NOS Blades
RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  You are looking at a 1918 Gillette U.S. Army Razor. The razor is in EXCELLENT 
condition. The finish is clean.  There are two very small STABLE stress
fractures in the handle, which is very common in Gillette's hollow handle
razors.  This great collectible is in excellent condition and still shines, 
there are no broken teeth but there are two that are slightly bent inwards, 
which could be quite easily fixed.  Although there is a tiny bit of plate 
loss on the edge of the upper blade plate this is still a magnificent 
collectible.  Also included are five NOS Gillette Thin Blades which have 
never been opened. SERIEL NUMBER J3491 which makes this great collectible 
from 1918. 

  It was made for WWI, and was sold to the US government.  The underside of 
the bottom blade plate reads "PROPERTY OF U.S. ARMY". 1918 E449208-J7344, 
Plus F/G/H (no I) J Series, all U.S. military Models 102, 3.5 million razors 
produced for US forces in WWI. 35 million blades produced for US forces in 
WWI.  My everday Gillette is an Old Style just a few years newer than this 
one. Best shave on the planet.

  The Gillette Service Sets (in the metal cases) were sold through retailers 
(at least through Sears, Roebuck) and were also from around 1918 but DID NOT 
read "PROPERTY OF U.S. ARMY". There are at least three versions of this for 
the U.S. and one Canadian version. There's also one lithographed tin for the 
U.S. This is a military razor.  It says: "PROPERTY OF U.S. ARMY" on the 
bottom blade plate. Please be sure to look at the pictures as they are part 
of the description.

1917 Gillette Old Type Safety Razor w NOS Blades


1917 Gillette Old Type Safety Razor w NOS Blades 
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE! 

  What we have here is a 1917 Gillette Old Type Safety Razor w NOS Blades.
This razor is a model 102 and has a weight of 50g.  It is in very good
condition with no plate loss that I can see.  It has been cleaned and 
polished and is shave ready.  Although the razor has a stress fracture on
the top of the handle as almost all of the hollow handles have this vintage
razor is still very collectible.  In 1917 Gillette begins making the Pocket 
Edition sets themselves instead of contracting them out to American Button 
Company (ABC). These razors now come with hollow handles, which in my 
opinion was a very bad move on the part of Gillette.  Also included with
this great looking Gillette Old Type Razor is an unopened box of NOS Gillette
"no honing" "no stropping" DE razor blades.  Please be sure to look at the 
pictures as they are a true representation of this product.

  Also included in this set is a vintage shaving brush, shaving soap holder
from around the same time frame as the razor. This item is in mint condition
left no plate loss, dents or scratches.  This wonderful set will make a 
great collectible for the seasoned collector or a beginner.

The Otto Roth company made safety razors early in the last 
century and was in Germany (I'm not sure but I think in 
Berlin). 
  
One famous razor they made was the Rotbart Mond. They were in 
competition with Gillette then and Gillette decided to buy this 
factory in the 1920's.
After Gillette bought this factory they made rebranded Gillette 
safety razors with the Rotbart writing on them. 
  
They made safety razors until the seventies and the latest 
famous razor from Rotbart looks exactly like the Gillette Slim 
twist.  
  
Here is a sample of an early Rotbart Mond: 
  
http://cgi.ebay.de/Blechdose-alter-N...item518efcadd6 
  
But I must say I've never heard about an Otto Roth made in USA, 
maybe a former owner combined some parts of a US. Gillette with a 
german Rotbart? 
  
BTW, Rotbart blades are still in production (see the blade 
reviews), good blades but at least simply rebranded Gillette blades 
from Procter & Gamble. 
The Otto Roth company made safety razors early in the last 
century and was in Germany (I'm not sure but I think in 
Berlin). Today Gillette is owned by Procter & Gamble.

1886 Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor


1886 Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor
RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!

  An antique Kampfe Brothers Star Safety Razor with one blade and blade holder.
The third section of the handle, used for honing and stropping the blade is 
missing, and the blade needs sharpening before any use.  Invented by the 
Kampfe Brothers.

  This beautiful Star has 1 original blade that appears unused.  Modern SE 
blades will work in this razor.  All I did was clean it with warm soapy water.
I did not use any kind of polish on it.  The material on the snap on the 
case has some vintage ware that can be seen in the pictures but it still 
snaps and keeps the box closed.  The razor box is in very good vintage 
condition inside and out.

  1875 -The Kampfe brothers introduce the Star Razor, the first safety razor 
made in the United States. Its revolutionary design wins national and 
international awards for design and craftsmanship.

  King Camp Gillette is best known, incorrectly, as the inventor of the safety 
razor. The first safety razor was in fact invented in 1880's by the Kampfe 
Brothers. This Star razors produced by the Kampfe Brothers around 1903.
As can be seen from markings on the razor itself and it's box, the razor had
already won awards and patents long before Gillette.

  The head reads:  Star Safety Razor  
Patented Dec.14, 86
June 15, 80 Mar. 8, 86
