Gillette, owned by Proctor & Gamble is the world's number one selling shaving range.
Way back in 1901 King C. Gillette invented the first ever safety razor, which was patented on the 4th of November 1904. This new razor was to radically alter the way men shave forever. Regretfully Gillette stopped making safety razors in the 1970s in favour of the throwaway, plastic, multi blade cartridge type razors they now sell. Vintage Gillette safety razors are in huge demand, surely Gillette will one day go back to manufacturing safety razors?
