1956 Gillette Super Speed, Blue Tip in ORIGINAL Case
RICHARDS RAZORS; MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE!
Gillette Super Speed razor with blue tip, mild beard. TTO knob, Uses regular double edge blades.
1956 Gillette Superspeed blue tip double edge safety razor. This razor was a part of the mild,
medium and aggressive series with the blue tip being the mild version. These are great lightweight
shavers with an aluminum handle and a painted blue tip. I believe 1959 may have been the last
year this series was produced. This razor is in perfect working and shaving condition some 50 or
more years later and should continue to work for a lifetime with proper care.
The handle doesn't show any tarnish; as is common with the aluminum handles, and the razor
head is clean and free of any brassing or plating loss and shows no dings and wear. The blue
tip exhibits no paint loss as well. This razor is a excellent collectible and/or would make a great
daily shaver. The doors twist to open easily to exchange blades. Also included in this great
vintage set is a container of Gillette Platinum Plus blades, I have no idea how many blades are in
The razor has been thoroughly scrubbed, cleaned, boiled most likely hasn't seen use in decades.
Gillette built these babies to sell blades so they are built tough and they are also great pieces
of American history that shave better than any gimmicky 5 blade nonsense available today. This
safety razor is in very good condition, as is the case, made by Gillette Safety Razor Co.

Terms of Sale:
When I describe an object as 'VINTAGE' or 'ANTIQUE' they will have the typical wear and tear you
would expect with an older piece. Light scratches, scuffing & crazing and such like would be
expected as opposed to a NEW condition. If an item is in MINT condition I will say so. If an item
has any major issues - dents, deep marks, stains or heavy scratches etc. I will bring these to your
attention in my description. All sales final.
