The first new razor to be made by Gillette after the war.
The 1940s style Super Speed is justly thought of as one of their major triumps.

This Super Speed dates to 1950-1951. It may be as late as 1954, when production ceased, but this is unlikely.
The center bar is knotched for easier blade loading, dating it later than 1948.
In 1950 the stamping on the inside changed from "PAT. NOS. ON PACKAGE" to "PAT. NOS. ON PKG.". This one has ""PAT. NOS. ON PKG.", dating it to at least 1950.
However there is no date code, date codes were much more widespread in 1951 and later. But they may still have been omitted on later models.

This razor is in fantastic condition for its age, with only minor cosmetic type scratches on the top of the head. The plating is shiny and bright throughout.
The Twist-To-Open (TTO) doors open and close exactly as they should, just like the day it left the factory.

Vintage Gillette's stand the test of time like no other safety razor, i feel they were never made to a budget, but they probably were, they were just so well made. When this razor was new, it was'nt the throw away mentality we have today & Joe Public simply could'nt afford to do that. This is not just a good razor, it's a great razor.
