This magnificent item is the Classic 1921 Gillette New Improved Gold Tuckaway Set. This pocket razor is another of the New design like the New Standard but a little smaller. The finish on the outside of the case is in Very Good Plus Condition with a Minimum of Wear. The razor as you can see in the pictures is in Fantastic Condition with almost No Wear and definitely No Rust. It is a three piece razor and all the parts fit together tightly to hold the blade in place. As with all of Gillette's hollow handle razors this one also has Two Small Stress Fractures one at the top of the handle, one of the bottom of the handle approximately a 16th of an inch long but stable!
The interior of the case is also in Very Good Plus Condition, it is covered in red fabric which is still in Very Good Plus Condition, also the printing on the inside top of the case is Completely Legible. The exterior of the case is also in Very Good Plus Condition with a minimum of wear. The mechanism that holds the case closed works 100%, the case closes evenly and stays closed. This is a classic that should be owned by every DE shaver. This kit is in Excellent Condition. This item would be great for a collector or to be used as a daily shaver. It has been sanitized using antibacterial soap, a soft toothbrush and water and then cleaned and polished to a high sheen that can be seen in the pictures. This item is shave ready.
This razor head style is known as the "New Improved" type which was first produced in 1921. Originally sold for between $6.00 and $9.00 respectively. This style case is known as the "VEST POCKET" case. This razor will give a very close, clean, and comfortable shave as long as the shaver knows it gives an aggressive shave. Please be sure to see all the pictures also the pictures that I have posted on YouTube for any flaws.
