    Red Tip Prospector

    What a lovely razor. Not aggressive at all and very smooth like most of the vintage Gillette's. The revamp in rhodium and gold is just stunning. Thanks.

    Amazing

    Good day all. Just wanted to write and say that this razor is perfect! This is the very first Gillette Super Speed Red Tip DE that I have owned. The quality and finish is next to none. I also have the 1959 Prospector Edition as well. I would recommend both razors!. The Razor Emporium restoration process down to an art. The only problem I have is trying to decide what razor to use between the 1959 or the Gillette Super Speed Red Tip DE LOL. If you want a razor that will last you and that you can pass down don't hesitate to order one of these! Thank you Razor Emporium!! Joseph H
