1940's Gillette Super Speed Safety Razor Set | Original Condition

SKU: Case-42924-2

Description

This model from Gillette is considered by the wet-shaving community to be one of the most popular and classic. Its simple design has provided clean and close shaves since the 1940's.

The Gillette Super Speed features a convenient way to quickly and safely load blades. This Twist to Open feature works smoothly and doors open just as they should. This razor is a moderate shaver, perfect for beginners and all beard types! 

Vintage safety razors pack some of the most bang for the buck, but knowing if they are fully functional, hygienic and shave-ready is a different story. This razor has gone through our complete tune up process. We first clean the razor in our industrial ultrasonic machine to remove any soap scum, mineral deposits and grime. Disassembly is carried out for the best results whenever possible. Next we carefully polish the inside and out of the razor, bringing the vintage metal up to a high luster. Mechanical adjustments are made to ensure the best functionality of the razor.
