Vintage Gillette Double Ring Double Edge Safety Razor -- The Original For Sale
Excellent condition 1905 Double Ring with serial #213407. All teeth are straight and the three sections fit together with precision. Some very minor blemishes can be seen in the plating as well as brassing on the tips of the teeth, but, otherwise, it is in beautiful shape. The case is also exceptionally nice with a perfectly functioning slide clasp and only minor wear to be seen in and out. The two cardboard blade holders are in perfect shape and a few original three-hole blades are included. This is as nice a Double Ring set as there has been on in some time. Don't miss the opportunity to own the original Gillette razor. On Jul-14-13 at 21:53:46 PDT, seller added the following information:

IN MY HASTE OF LISTING ITEMS, I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT SOME OF THE LEATHER IS MISSING FROM THE EDGES OF THE CASE LID. AT SOME POINT AND TIME, SOMEBODY PAINTED OR STAINED THE EXPOSED WOOD (SEEN CLEARLY IN PICTURE #11). THIS WAS HOW I FOUND IT. I APOLOGIZE FOR OMITTING THIS INFORMATION IN MY ORIGINAL LISTING.
