 1930s Gold Double Edge 'NEW' Gillette Berkshire Razor in Its Original Case with a gold colored brass blade safe. This beautiful Berkshire 'NEW' Razor is in Very Good Plus Condition, The Razors Plating Is Completely Original and Has No Plate Loss, Brassing, Scratches, Gouges! Writing on under side of razor head:  Gillette, Made in USA, Writing on handle:  Pat. Jan 13, 1920, USA, other patents pending.

  The Razor Case is in Very Good Plus Condition with No discernible WARE on the outside or the inside of the case. This beautiful vintage razor weighs in at 54.3 g. The Leather look Brown Case is covered in a very dark green velvet lining inside. The inside top of box reads "The New Gillette  Made in USA, Known the world over." The lettering is still in Very Good Condition. Gillette "NEW" style safety razor, gold plated. This is a three piece razor, the top piece has the bar that fits in blade slot with a center stud that screws into the handle.  The bottom blade holder has a slot in the middle. This is an Open Comb razor. 

   The Gillette "NEW" came on the market in 1930. It continued the drop-shoulder profile of the out in the middle Gillette "NEW" Improved from 1921, but with a straight bar that required blades with a slot cut in them and for a while, only Gillette had those blades. The "NEW" can be found with two different handles, one a hollow handle and one a solid handle (of smaller diameter) with a ball at the end. Personally I prefer shaving with the "ball end";  it has a very balanced weight in your hand and gives a great clean shave. Please be sure to look closely at all the pictures, also see the pictures that I've posted on YouTube.
