This razor is a 1955 Gillette Refurbished Red Tip Razor W Blade A2. This twist to open safety razor by Gillette has been completely disassembled, cleaned, re-plated, painted and reassembled. It is in Excellent Condition. The 1955 Gillette has the distinctive red handle tip which looks like brand-new. The razor's butterfly doors open & close smoothly! There is NO loss of color on the red tip what so ever.
This 1955 Gillette Red Tip Superspeed has been re-plated in nickel and looks great, it is built to last many lifetimes. It has absolutely NO plate loss. This razor is shave ready or a wonderful collectors item. This razor has a reputation for giving great results, due to its size and weight which gives great balance and makes shaving an even better experience. It is made of brass and plated with nickel. The Red Tip Super Speed was the heaviest of the three Gillette Super Speeds with a blade exposure of 0.64 mm (most aggressive) with a weight of 65g.
In the mid 1950s, Gillette made 3 versions of it's Super Speed Twist To Open double edge safety razor to suit different beard/skin types and different preferences. The Blue Tip was known as the "Light" model, the Silver the Medium, and the Red Heavy. The Red Tip is by far my favorite Super Speed model, and one of my favorite Gillette razors. It has a nice weight in the hand, although it's the most agressive of the three superspeed models it truly provides an exceptionally smooth shave. Please be sure to look carefully at all the pictures also see the pictures that I have posted on YouTube.
