All Items Sold for Best Offer

 
This magnificent collectible is in MINT condition, there is absolutely no plate loss, brassing or rust to the razor. Everything about this razor shines, in my opinion if it was used at all it was very few times. This beautiful razor is completely mechanically sound, the (TTO) twist to open blade compartment doors operate flawlessly, opening easily and closing tightly and evenly.
 
The razor case is also in Excellent condition with no breakage whatsoever, the clear plastic top has no scratches or gouges. This great collectible also comes with the Original instructions and a dispenser of Gillette Blue Blades, the dispenser is not full, with used blades in the back, there are some new blades in the front of the dispenser. The razor is imprinted with the Gillette symbol and made in England, in the blade compartment it reads "patent pending".
 
 When referring to a "Rocket" it is a Gillette razor made in England that has a unique design where the twist to open knob shortens and recedes into the handle as the doors are opened, like a bolt and nut. American razors stay the same length whether the silo doors are open or closed. This “Rocket gap” is a distinguishing feature that is easy to recognize.

The Rocket family encompasses a few other razors such as the Parat and Aristocrat Jr. There are other differences such as a solid post and pointed side plate unit opposed to the folded post and soldered on blunt end caps common to American razors. This feature along with the internal mechanical design gives the more solid feeling most people report when talking of Rockets. The Rockets also have a better polished silo doors and higher quality plating in my opinion.

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.
