For you today, we have a razor that is considered to be one of the most beautiful models Gillette ever created: the Executive. Between the heft and cool factor, it doesn't get more classic than this. Nothing bent or broken- great mechanical condition. Everything opens smooth and closes tight. Razor features Barber Pole knurling pattern, known to be one of the rarest and most sought after patterns. Original rhodium plating is in excellent overall condition, it is very tough to find one in this great of shape. Rhodium was not a common material used for Gillette which makes this razor even more special!

The case features excellent condition original velvet! The glue mark is standard on all Executive cases and should not count against the collector value. The case is adorned with genuine ostrich leather, a unique and gorgeous touch.

When released, this Executive model was 10x the price of a standard super speed razor (1950's super speed was $1.00, the Executive was $10.00). Inflation combined with the stunning condition of the this set and the rarity we know it won't last long! This is a gorgeous keepsake any wet shaver or Gillette collector will be proud to own, buy now!
