Vintage 1978 Gillette Super Adjustable Safety Razor

£135.00

Quantity: In Stock



In total defiance of business logic Gillette stopped making these razors around 1985 in favour of multi blade cartridge razors. The guy who made the decision is a fool. Today these razors would sell in their millions. I have owned one and from experience it's one of the very best razors they ever made. This particular version has the plastic baseplate.

It benefits from a long handle with fine knurling ensuring a firm grip. The butterfly opening doors making changing blades easy. Best of all this is an adjustable razor with settings 1-9, choose the amount of blade exposure that suits you, the higher the number, the closer the shave you'll get. This razor has Y1 stamped internally on the baseplate which tells us this razor was made in the first quarter of 1978. The underside confirms it was made in the USA.

This razor is in good condition, the long, black handle is free of scratches and dents. The doors operate perfectly. The head shows signs of use with some minor, cosmetic type scratches and small flea bites in the plating.
