http://youtu.be/QN_Qgqb1FJQ … More Pictures
This is a TTO razor ( twist to open ) everything mechanical about this item works perfectly. The plating is in Fantastic condition, there is No Rust or Corrosion on this beautiful collectible razor. In some of the pictures you may see a few black spots, that's just a small amount of leftover polish and will come off easily with a soft toothbrush.
If you notice the knob and handle are the same size, this is what makes the Parat unique, it is very similar to the 40's style Rocket but this sets it apart. 1950s British made Gillette Parat in Excellent Condition. This razor shaves much like a Super Speed, but is slightly heavier. One of my personal favorite razors.
