This set is the perfect gift for any guy interested in the WWI era of history! Included is 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 usable 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 threadlocked and will never crack. The teeth are straight and ready to shave, and the finish is stain and scratch resistant!
Included with your WWI replica case is a shave mirror and pack of ready to use Gillette blades. You can't go wrong with this awesome traveler and thoughtful gift!

History: The Gillette Old Type was the original razor head produced by Gillette Safety Razor Co. It features open comb design with two stabilizer pins that keep the blade straight. These heads are known for their smooth yet aggressive shaves. These were the same model as featured in the WWI Khaki sets.
I love this little piece of history. Not only is the whole thing very good quality, but it gives the best shave (in my opinion) of any of my other safety razers. Definitely gonna be gifting this out to friends
