Available is a revamped Gillette Red Tip. This razor has had a tricky time in the Revamp service, and we've decided to list it at a discounted price. Red Tips should be experienced, and even though this one is not the prettiest, it will still deliver incredible shaves! This classic Gillette Super Speed model has been cleaned, polished and plated in Rhodium to give it that magnificent mirror finish. The TTO or twist to open function works perfectly, allowing you to open the doors in a swift motion with no problems. The red tip is one of the most popular razor choices for wet shavers due to the close shave provided and its exquisite durability.
This razor has gone through our complete Revamp restoration process- including polishing, mechanical adjustment, plating, lubricating and paiting. Nothing is bent or broken. The razor head doors open and the TTO or twist to open mechanism works perfectly in seemless motions.
