One of the classic DE razors ever to be made - the Super Speed. Great overall condition on this Black Handle type. Nothing bent or broken- great mechanical condition.
This is a great razor for a beginner to wet-shaving, and works as the perfect moderate aggressive razor addition to any shave den, and would make an especially great gift for anyone born in 1973!
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.
