Gillette Ball End Replica Handle - Universally Threaded Solid 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 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.

    Brass replica handle

    This is an outstanding replica of the vintage Gillette Ball end razor handle. The look, fit, and feel of the handle are perfect to replace my original handle with a crack. This handle actually feels better than the original due to the construction and knurling. Vey satisfied with the quality of this product.

    Gillette replica handle

    This is the second replica handle I've bought. Repeat purchase, can't get better review than that! I like the knurling on this handle much better than the original Gillette. The original seem much smoother. I bought this handle to pair with a $10 new head only I found.

    Gillette Ball End Replica Handle

    This is exactly what I needed. I have a 1930's Gillette "New" Short Comb that I used to use every day. The handle was a ball end, and had that crack in it near the thread like most of them. It was fine until I dropped the razor on a tile floor and the crack got so big that it won't stay attached to the razor head. The new one looks perfect and fits perfectly. Thanks, Matt and Razor Emporium for such stellar service.

    Gillette replica handle

    I bought this to replace the handle on my 1918 old. It had a small crack and the olds might as well not have knurling, in my opinion. This handle is very close, I think it be a tad larger diameter. What I really like is the knurling, very grippy!!
