1920's Gillette Tuckaway Safety Razor With Case & Blade Bank Vintage Gold Finish:
I am offering this Gillette Tuckaway Safety Razor with Case and blade storage bank for your offerding consideration. It's from the 1920's with the typical Jan 13 1920 patent date above the ring at the base of the knurled handle. please look over the pictures. I wish to point out 2 fine handle cracks which are shown in picture #9 and #10. They are both quite small and just inside the upper and lower rings of the handle stem. This type of razor doesn't stress the tube as the earlier 3 pc. "Old Style" 1904 patent Gillette razors did; so I doubt that these cracks would spread beyond what they are today. The plating on the cap piece is slightly warn but still in good shape for the age of the piece. I have NOT POLISHED this razor in ANY way. I will leave that to the discretion of the buyer. I believe the buyer will find that this razor is a slightly aggressive shaver and just a light (no pressure) touch will provide a great shave. The Tuckaway has a fairly hefty weight to it for being a compact travel size razor. I will give it a sterilizing bath in Barbicide before I ship it out. Please feel free to ask questions, I will get back to you ASAP. Please pay for your purchase within 3 days of the sales closing. I will re-list it otherwise. FREE First Class shipping to the Lower 48 States of the USA. . Priority Mail is listed as an option if you prefer at your cost of $6.95 (again, for the lower 48 States of the USA). FREE Local pick up is fine and welcomed. Best Regards Brian J.
