The Flare/Flair Tip Super Speed from Gillette is a Twist to Open (TTO) Double Edge Razor that allows convenient loading of blades and provides moderate shaves so all hair types can get a smooth shave every time! The Flare Tip Super Speed is a very popular Gillette razor because of its mechanical design, durability, and is highly recommended for beginner wet shavers. The tip colors correspond to the level of aggression in the shave. Not all beards need the intense shave of a Red Tip Super speed, for those shavers this is the perfect solution!
The Gillette Super Speed Flare Tip was manufactured from the 1950's-1960's.

WHY WAS OUR MADE TO ORDER SECTION CREATED?
We get questions frequently asking if a particular razor they are bidding on through Ebay would be a good candidate for a Revamp. It's impossible to guarantee our analysis is accurate without having the razor in our hands, so we created a solution! Forget the risk of buying online, paying shipping, shipping the razor to us, paying for service work, waiting an additional 4-6 weeks, only to receive the razor back and be disappointed because it wasn't a perfect candidate to begin with.
WHAT IS MADE TO ORDER?
Our 'Made to Order' service allows you to purchase razors that we have already inspected, vetted, and guarantee! Pick the razor model and precious metal of your choosing and your Revamped razor will be shipped in no more than 7-10 days!
If you have a preference in Date Codes we will do our best to secure them, however cannot guarantee the date code will be available.
This is the 3rd razor I've bought from Razor Emporium. Again, I can only say that the razor was in perfect condition, better shape I'll bet than on the drug store counter in 1961.
I've had a harder time warming up to this razor, mainly because of its very thin handle, which seems hard to grip vs. my Fatboy and Red tip. I guess it's whatever one gets used to.
J'ai reçu ce jour le super speed TTO de 1954, revamp nickel factory. Il est très beau, à l'exception d'un ou deux endroits ou le placage est trop léger. Notamment, sur la barre entre les deux volets, on devine le laiton qui est dessous.
C'est dommage, c'est pour cela que j'ai mis 4 étoiles.
Je suis un peu déçu, surtout que le Tech que j'avais reçu il y a un an était parfait.
Continuer à faire de votre mieux et ce sera parfait.
I recently received my made to order flare tip Gillette super speed. I chose the rhodium finish. The razor arrived in under two weeks, and in perfect condition! The finish is amazing! It looks like it was made today! The mechanisms work perfectly! I have used it several times, and it shaves perfectly! Matt and the team did a great job!
