RICHARDS RAZORS;  MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!
 
  This razor is an B-2, 1956, twist to open safety razor by Gillette.  It is in very 
good+ Vintage condition.  The razor comes with the original case which is in excellent 
condition and a container of 10 Gillette Blue Blades.  The 1956 Gillette has the
distinctive red handle tip.  The razor's butterfly doors open & close smoothly!  There 
is NO loss of color on the red tip what so ever.  This 1956 Gillette is nickel plated 
and built to last many lifetimes.  It has absolutely NO plate loss.  Please be sure to
look at the pics.  This razor is shave ready or a wonderful collectors item. 
 
  This razor has a reputation for giving great results, due to its size and weight 
which gives great balance and makes shaving an even better experience.  It is made of 
brass and plated with nickel.  The Red Tip Super Speed was the heaviest of the three 
Gillette Super Speeds with a blade exposure of 0.64 mm (most aggressive) with a weight 
of 65g.
 
  In the mid 1950s, Gillette made 3 versions of it's Super Speed Twist To Open double 
edge safety razor to suit different beard/skin types and different preferences.  The 
Blue Tip was known as the "Light" model, the Silver the Medium, and the Red Heavy.  The 
Red Tip is by far my favorite Super Speed model, and one of my favorite Gillette 
razors. It has a nice weight in the hand, although it's the most agressive of the 
three superspeed models it truly provides an exceptionally smooth shave.
