1920's Gillette Old Type Ball End Double Edge Safety Razor with Replica Handle | Factory Nickel Revamp

SKU: WW1-Gillette

Description

A beautiful Old Type Ball End razor featuring open comb guard and balanced ball-end handle. The razor head has been professionally restored by our team of razor experts. The surface has been refinished and replated transforming this antique into a modern usuable connection to history! The handle is modern made from solid brass and plated in nickel.

These handles historically had cracks due to the press fitting. We have corrected this issue by threading the neck and ball into the handle rather than press-fitting. The threads have been thread-locked and will never crack.

    Beautiful

    The razor is absolutely beautiful. I was apprehensive about flaws but took the chance, and glad I did. The razor is practically perfect. The Old Type is a fantastic razor, too.

    Gillette Vintage 1920 old type ball safety razor

    Fit and finish of the razor is amazing. I can't believe that this razor is over 90 years old. The shave is equally as impressive. It shaves better than some modern DE razors that I own. I will definitely purchase more vintage razors from Razor Emporium. Keep up the good work. P.S. love your You Tube videos as well.
