All My Items Are Sold for Best Offer














Gillette "HEAVY" Super Speed Razor with Red Tip, date code C-1 isin Mint Condition.
TTO Knob (twist to open), 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 NO Paint Loss Which Can Be Seen in the Pictures. This Great Vintage
Razor Still Retains 99.9% of It's 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 which reads "HEAVY" on the front of the plastic lid
also is in nearly Mint Condition, Shows miniscule 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 are in it. The Razor Has Been
lightly cleaned, so the new owner may want to clean it to his own liking.
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.


1957 Gillette "HEAVY" 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 will 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
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description.
