    Default 1956 Gillette Diplomat Safety Razor w Original Case and Blades

    1956 Gillette Diplomat Safety Razor w Original Case and Blades
    RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!


    This 1956 Gillette B-2 Diplomat is a TTO (Twist to Open) razor and was produced between 1953 and
    1956. This razor is 24 ct. Gold plated with a top coat of lacquer to protect the gold, as it is a
    very soft metal. The set comes with a container of Gillette Blue Blades in the original dispenser. The
    Razor is in excellent condition with no wear and appears to have never been used. The razor case is
    in good condition. The outside bottom of the case has an extremely small ware mark also a
    small scuff on the top of the case as can be seen in the pictures. There is a small part of the
    inside of the case that shows minimal soiling which should clean up easily. There are no tares
    inside.

    One way to identify this beauty is the handle, which is thicker than the Super Speed, it is fluted
    and completely knurled the entire length from neck to knob unlike the Aristocrat of the same
    years which had a smooth band just above the knob. The Diplomat is 3.25 in overall length and
    weighs in at 70 grams. The blade gap of this razor is .64mm, which is the same as the Gillette
    New Razor. One other thing to note is that this razor came with the notched center bar to accept
    the use of the Blue Blade dispenser packs produced at the time. The Diplomat came in a very
    handsome leather clad case that was embossed with the Gillette crest in 24 ct Gold Leaf.

    This razor is one of my favorites, as I own another I occasionally use it. I get a fantastic
    shave from it, very comfortable and clean. There is just something about shaving with a 24 ct.
    Gold razor that just seems to make the shave that much more luxurious. Now you have the
    opportunity to buy a Gillette Diplomat, I highly recommend you jump on it, you won't be seeing
    another anytime soon.
