Description

A sought after razor indeed- the British HD Rocket. Great overall condition on this razor with nothing bent or broken- great mechanical condition. Features worm gear style TTO mechanism - providing a very smooth open and close! Watch as the bottom TTO knob goes up into the handle as you open it and close it. This particular razor's TTO is tighter than some, however it functions beautifully still!

The British designs for the Gillette razors were definitely superior to many of their American counterparts. Weighing 59 grams, this razor is constructed from aluminum and brass. Feels amazing in your hand!
