Here is a NOS Gillette 2-piece razor with a rare brown Bakelite blade bank and razor holder. It is made in England and has the original instructions and blade pack included. I really have no idea what it is worth (Not that I'd sell it anyway but it is interesting to know worth), but in Krumholz book, he has the blade bank ALONE listed for $50-70 in mint condition without case.

An English-made Gillette, unknown model, very similar to a Rocket 500 (the "HD"), but with a slightly different handle. Seems to have been made for the French market--the case was made in France, and is a yellow version of the more usual blue case.

Thanks to John (Yasuo), I can say this apparently is a British variant of the Super Speed, and not a Rocket. Interesting razor, and a near-match for the Rocket. Never seen one like it before!

Very Early Double Ring Gillettes (1903-1905)

Post by Pauldog » Wed Nov 21, 2007 12:44 am

[I'm moving this from the Razors & Blades forum at the request of the originator, Slant-Fan.]


Some double rings including a 1903, a 1904 and a few 1905s.

Ben's razor above inspired this picture. Akin to the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, I present to you, right below Ben’s Aristocrat #21, a Gillette Knack, one of the last DE razors Gillette ever made. Good shaver, nonetheless.

This gold case has a different latch than I have ever seen before. It has a switch that locks/opens the case, rather than the push button.

Come on guys, lets see those razors!
This TV Rocket just showed up at my house today. I didn't see any other pictures of one in the thread, so I thought I would post. These were actually Rhodium plated.

I'd just like to point out that the razor above has been replated as evidenced by the chrome ring below the adjustment dial which should be blued. This shouldn't be important to anyone but a collector. This is the "Collectors Corner" however so accuracy is best.
