For those who prefer a long handle and adjustable shave, look no further than the Double Edge Gillette Slim Adjustable. This razor is a classic with a TTO or twist to open mechanism which works in a swift motion, making it easy to get the perfect high luxury shave you've always wanted. These shavers are known as some of the most popular that Gillette ever crafted for good reason.
Wet-shavers world-wide respect the quality and popularity of this renowned adjustable razor. The adjuster works easily, and spins from 1-9, changing the amount of blade gap exposed during your shave. The higher the number, the bigger the blade gap (thus more aggressive of a shave), the smaller the gap (more mild shaves).
They are known to deliver great shaves and are one of the last DE razors to be made by Gillette. Nothing bent or broken - perfect mechanical condition. It has been professionally restored, polished, ultra-sonically cleaned, sanitized, adjusted, and is shave-ready upon arrival!

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.
