The Complete Gillette Collector's Handbook by Phillip Krumholtz E-book

SKU:

Description

A must have for any razor collector starting off, or for those just curious about Gillette history. This is the first digital edition of The Complete Gillette Collector's Handbook by Phillip L. Krumholz. It is in PDF format available for download upon purchase. If you've wanted a copy of this essential reference to Gillette safety razors, and didn't like the high prices on some web sites, or if you would like to have it in a handy digital format you can take anywhere, your wait is over.

Self published by the author, it was scanned from his own copy of the first printed edition. It also includes additional excerpts from his 1995 work, "Collector's Guide to American Razor Blades" (some portions of which were already in the Handbook). Between the two, you can identify and accurately date almost anything Gillette.

The scanned pages are in a better resolution than we're able to show here, but they give you some idea of the level of detail you'll be able to see. Since it's in a PDF, you can zoom in to any image for a closer look. This is important when looking at the minute differences between certain razor models. While it's not a text mode scan, you can use the table of contents to jump to any page or section you need.

If you're serious about collecting Gillette safety razors and accessories, this is the only resource that provides all the details you need. Other books have a chapter or section on Gillette. At 496 pages (including the razor blade reference), this one is as large as other whole books.

    Gillette book

    It's a good reference book. I didn't find it hard to read, I increased it to 125% but that's because I have old eyes. The picture quality is ok, nothing to brag about but you can see and tell what it is. One thing it is missing is a comparison picture of the different early razor heads. If you have a razor with no markings on it but the Gillette logo and made in the USA, like I do, this book will not help you date it except for a range like 1921-1929. But overall a good read and reference. I just wish I could get the razors at the prices he has listed.

    Very Low Res

    I was dissapointed with the low quality scan. Most of the images are so grainy they look like a very old newspaper. The story is of course good, but this is not worth paying money for.
