    Default 1918 Gillette U.S.Army Khaki Razor Set

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




    You are looking at a 1918 Gillette U.S. Army Khaki Razor Set. Included are the razor, blade

    holder and Canvas Case. The razor and blade case are in EXCELLENT condition. The finish is clean.

    THERE IS NO STRESS CRACKING TO THE HANDLE. The canvas case is in excellent condition. There are

    no tears or stains, really nice. The snap closure is in tact and functions. SERIEL NUMBER F902407.



    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". The canvas case and the razor were marked Property 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. I have a Khaki

    Set identical to this and it shaves wonderful. My everday Gillette is an Old Style just a few

    years newer than this one. Best shave on the planet.



    There were at least two Gillette Khaki sets made/sold to the U.S. Government from 1918-1920.

    There was a Gillette Military set that was a khaki-covered hard case that snapped. It was

    basically a Traveller set (razor, two blade holders, a soap tube, and a brush tube) covered in

    khaki.



    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 tinS for the U.S. This is a military set. 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.

    Terms of Sale:

    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. All sales final.
