1930's Valet AutoStrop Razor in Case w Blade Box


1930's Valet AutoStrop Razor in Case w Blade Box
Valet AutoStrop Razor made by AutoStrop Razor Co. New York U. S. A.
This fine vintage razor is in the original brown metal box with a blade box. The razor is in good condition for being 80 plus years old. To replace the blade flip the lever up to open the blade door, insert new blade and flip the lever down to lock blade in place. This razor uses single edge blades which can be purchased in many places that you go to everyday.

Razor measures 3-3/8" long and 1-3/4" across head. All parts work as intended. Overall this shaving kit is in good condition and would make a nice addition to your collection. The razor and case are in good condition. There is no rust or brassing, top of flap reads "Valet."

The handle unscrews to be removed for ease of access to the underside of the razor for cleaning. There is a release lever for the blade head, once opened there is a second release tab for the blade holder. There is also a very interesting gear works on the side of the head for sharpening the blade using a strop. Valet filed a lawsuit suit against the Gillette company on copyright infringement in 1930. Gillette took over the company shortly after that.

http://youtu.be/FUKAGkj_kUY … More Pictures

Gillette 1965 Slim Adjustable Razor, Date Code K1 & Gillette Stainless Steel Blades. A highly sought after Gillette Slim Adjustable safety razor. A very well built razor that will provide plenty of wonderful shaves. These are great shavers and a great value. Stamped with the K-1 date code for the first quarter of 1965. This one is in Near Mint Condition. I only say Near Mint because the razor is previously owned.

This fine vintage kit comes with the case, blades and instructions. The case is in good condition and has a minimal amount of vintage Ware which can be seen in the pictures, it opens and closes properly and the clasp holds it closed as it should. Please be sure to look closely at all the pictures, also I have posted approximately 100 pictures on YouTube. The fact is I am not a very good photographer so I take a lot of pictures for the buyers to look at.

Plating is Mint with No brassing. The black paint in the numbers is fully intact. The guards and blade gap are in excellent condition and the adjustment and opening mechanisms work flawlessly. Also included are the ORIGINAL instructions. Every bit as good a shaver as the more expensive Fatboy, excellent weight and balance. If you're looking to try an adjustable razor, you can't do better than a Gillette Super Slim Adjustable. This razor provides a custom shave.

The setting range is 1-9, one being the mildest shave and nine being the most aggressive. The size and weight of these razors provide great balance and makes shaving a pleasure. Razor is made of brass plated with nickel. This razor is in Near MINT condition, see photos. The TTO knob works well and the doors open smoothly and closes tightly as it should. This razor has been cleaned and sanitized using antibacterial soap and Barbacide.

The TTO knob works as well as the day it left the factory, the doors open smoothly and close tightly. This timeless razor comes in a brown leather covered box with maroon velvet interior.

The case is 3 1/2 inches by 3 inches and the razor is 3 1/4 inches long. The gold piping looks Very Good with NO discoloration or severe scratches. The outside of the case has Small Amounts of vintage wear, which can be seen in the pictures, the case is in Good Condition, the hinges still work perfectly closing the lid with a snap.

The fabric inside of the case is in Very Good Plus Condition. Included with this set is a partial dispenser of Gillette Super Blue Blades which is in Very Good Condition.

Great care was taken in the cleaning and sanitation of this razor. It is shave ready, just put in your favorite blade. Please be sure to look carefully at all the pictures and also see all the pictures that I have posted on YouTube.

HISTORY:
Spanning approximately 70 years, the Aristocrat name plate was the longest running of the Gillette line of DE razors, and in my opinion, was their flagship razor. True, more upscale and pricier sets were made, but only for short periods of time, while the Aristocrat enjoyed fairly steady production until a decade long break from 1951 to 1961. This appears to have been a very popular razor in its time.

1955 Re-Plated Gillette Diplomat Razor w Original Case

1955 Re-Plated Gillette Diplomat Razor w Original Case/
http://youtu.be/910_3n-iUp0 … More Pictures

1955 Re-Plated Gillette Diplomat Razor w Original Case. 1955 Gillette A3 Diplomat is a TTO (Twist to Open) razor and was produced between 1953 and 1956. This razor is 24 ct. Gold plated with a top coat of lacquer to protect the gold as it is a very soft metal. The set comes with a partial container of Gillette Blue Blades in the original dispenser. The Razor is in Mint Condition with Absolutely No Wear, it has been completely disassembled, given a complete tuneup so that all the mechanics work precisely as they should, the doors open and close properly and close tightly to hold the blade firmly in place. The blade gap is even on both sides of the razor as it should be, the razor was then re-plated with 24 carat Gold and reassembled.

The razor case is in Good Plus Condition. The hinges are in excellent condition closing the lid with a snap. The outside of the case has small amounts of vintage Ware which can be seen in the pictures. The inside of the case shows minimal soiling with no rips or tares to the fabric. Please be sure to look closely at all the pictures, also all the pictures that I have posted on YouTube.

One way to identify this beauty is the handle, which is thicker than the Super Speed, it is fluted and completely knurled the entire length from neck to knob unlike the Aristocrat of the same years which had a smooth band just above the knob. The Diplomat is 3.25” in overall length and
weighs in at 70 grams. The blade gap of this razor is .64mm, which is the same as the Gillette New Razor. One other thing to note is that this razor came with the notched center bar to accept the use of the Blue Blade dispenser packs produced at the time. The Diplomat came in a very
handsome leather clad case that was embossed with the Gillette crest in 24 ct Gold Leaf.

This razor is one of my favorites, as I own another I occasionally use it. I get a fantastic shave from it, very comfortable and clean. There is just something about shaving with a 24 ct. Gold razor that just seems to make the shave that much more luxurious. Now you have the opportunity to buy a Gillette Diplomat, I highly recommend you jump on it, you won't be seeing another Gillette Diplomat razor in this condition anytime soon. The razor has been cleaned, polished, re-plated, tuned up and is shave ready, just put in your favorite blade and get ready for the best shave of your life.

In 1921, Colonel Schick invented a new type of safety razor, the Magazine Repeating Razor. Inspired by the army repeating rifle, it had replacement
blades stored in a clip in the handle ready to be fed into shaving position by pivoting the head and stroking a built in lever, without the chore and danger of handling a sharp blade. Production of this innovative razor started in Jersey City in 1926. These magazine repeating razors were
produced in three models between 1926 and about 1935, and were the forerunners to the famous Schick Injector Razor, still made today. The popular Schick Injector Razor has a separate magazine of blades that is inserted into the razor head to inject a new blade, and slide the old one out.
