For those who prefer a long handle and adjustable shave, look no further than the Gillette "Black Beauty!" This razor features a brass head with factory nickel plating and aluminum handle. Wet-shavers world-wide respect the quality and popularity of this renowned adjustable razor. The adjuster works very easy, 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 ultra-sonically cleaned, sanitized, adjusted, polished and is shave-ready upon arrival to you. 

Doors open and close smoothly, and are bright and shiny in new nickel plating. Ditch that cartridge shave club and join the vintage shaving community!
