Gillette Ball End Replica Handle - Universally Threaded Billet Brass Factory Nickel

SKU: 09991R

Description

Introducing a new product fro Razor Emporium, one that has been much needed in the world of vintage wet-shaving. Gillette Ball End handles found on Old Type, New Improved, and NEW era razors are seen frequently with cracks. Most handles feature at least a hairline crack, and some are split completely in half. This flaw is the result of a pressfitting technique which in combination with poor metallurgy resulted in weak handles and unusable razors.

Our handles are made from billet high quality brass and we have corrected the cracks by threading the neck and ball into the handle rather than press-fitting. The threads have been thread-locked so they will never come loose and will never crack. A beautiful Ball End handle can accompany most safety razor heads including Ikon, Edwin Jagger, Above the Tie, and etc. These handles are a great find, add one to your cart now.

    Gillette Ball End Replica Handle

    Bought one in nickle and the other in brass. Love them both! High quality product at incredibly low price, great value here. Handles feel very durable and have nice balance. I use them with a pair of Timeless caps/bases. Highly recommend these handles!

    Gillette Ball End Replica Handle

    The replica handle solves the problem of two hairline cracks in the handle of my Gillette ball-end, old type, 3-piece razor, although the original 90-to-100-year-old handle is still functional. The checkered knurling on the replica is deeper and the checkers larger than on the original ball-end handle, so the replica handle is somewhat “grippier.” Otherwise, the replica matches the ball-end handle closely and looks good with the old head and plate. The factory nickel finish closely matches Razor Emporium’s factory nickel finish on revamped razors. The replica can also be used on other 3-piece razors, such as the Gillette Tech; but it is slightly longer and heavier than the Tech’s “fat handle” and changes the balance slightly.

    Excellent. Better than the original.

    Great for making a Frankenrazor too. I use it with an R41 head.
