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

Gift wrapping:
Options available

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 solid 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

    Posted by John Meyer on 17th Sep 2020

    Just got the Replica Handle that Razor Emporium is making to solve the problem of the cracking Gillette handle from the 20's and 30's on the old and new Gillette razor of the time. I put it on a razor head that need an up grading to look more nostalgic. The razor not only looks good but it feel good in your hand while shaving. I love it and definitely recommend getting this handle as a replacement or an upgrade to your razor.

    Amazing Replica

    Like almost all original Gillette ball end handles, mine had split. These replicas look exactly the same but are improved with thicker walls and threaded tips. Wonderful replacement

    While nicely made with good checkering, it is a small handle. Thin also.

    Gillette ball end replica satisfactory

    Posted by Jose perez on 26th Mar 2020

    I could believe that they made a replica of the Gillette ball end I love the style of it and it feels great and looks great I use it on a safety razor head that I ordered on amazon that was a head separated from the handle and I tried it the Gillette ball end and hits perfectly I used on the razor I use every time I shave the only downside is not the handle but it the picture it showed the head with the handle that look like the 1918 I think Gillette ball end razor with the open comb I hope they had the head I would had a replica of the vintage razor of the 1918 that had a better process metal on it but no but overall the handle work great I love it and will continue to use it I give this handle 5 stars.

    Well made replica handle

    Posted by James B. on 14th Feb 2020

    I bought this handle in brass as a backup handle for my 1930s Gillette ball end razor. The workmanship is great and the handle fits my ball end perfectly. The replica handle looks almost identical to the original. Customer service was great. The handle arrived in just 3 days after placing my order.

    Excellent Replica

    Posted by John Fregeau on 28th Dec 2019

    I have a Gillette New razor (patent Jan 23, 1920) with small cracks at both ends of the handle. I can shave with it, but the top will pop out if the handle of I'm not careful. So I bought the replica handle as a replacement. The original razor weighs 1.9 grams assembled and 2 grams assembled with the replica handle. Compared to the original the replica has a balance point slightly higher up the handle than the original. The original handle's ball end is heavier, hence the different balance point, it is also slightly wider and shorter than the replica's ball end. The replica handle is easier to grip because of the deeper kneeling.

    The shave is excellent. It feels very similar to the original. Good weight and balance to the razor and very comfortable in the hand. A pleasure to use!
