1930s Gillette 'NEW' Short Comb Razor W Blade
https://youtu.be/QsWCUNUf52w … More Pictures
For sale I have a 1930s Gillette 'NEW' Short Comb Razor W Blade. The 'NEW' is in my opinion one of the very best 3 piece open comb razors Gillette ever made. All the Gillette 'NEW' razor's shaved extremely well, but the slightly larger machined head makes this model just that little bit nicer. This fine collectible razor is in Very Good Plus condition. This great razor has been cleaned and polished by hand to the high luster that you see in the pictures. The weight of this razor is 57g.
This razor is in Fantastic Condition, The teeth are all present and straight. The handle has No cracks. This razor is a great piece of Gillette history; a Vintage 1930’s Gillette 'NEW' short comb open safety razor with its original common bar handle.
The original Brass and Copper have been cleaned and hand polished to perfection and are wonderfully Bright & Shiny. The outside of the top blade plate has a Small Amount of vintage Ware which I believe can be removed by polishing, but I'm going to let the new owner take care of that. The top-cap screws and unscrews smoothly as it should into the handle. The blade-guard teeth are absolutely straight. There are NO cracks in the Standard Common Bar handle.
This great collectible razor was repackaged by Gillette into quite a few different models. The whole Gillette practice of blatantly repackaging the same product was a reflection of the times. Maybe people back in the '30s didn't notice or didn't care about the whole naming / model thing. I know that Gillette was just out to sell blades, but by packaging the 'NEW' sets along with blades, he probably was able to pick up a few new converts to the Gillette razor each year.
