    Default 1957 Gillette Red Tip Original Case and Blades

    1957 Gillette Red Tip Original Case and Blades
    RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!


    This razor is a C-4, 1957, twist to open safety razor by Gillette. It is in very
    good+ Vintage condition. The 1957 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. The included case is in" MINT" condition with no scratches or gouges
    anywhere on it. Also included is an packet of Gillette Blue Razor Blades.
    This 1957 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 bladeexposure 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.

    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.
