This classic brass, gold plated, bakelite handle Gillette Tech Razor you
are viewing was gently cleaned and thoroughly sanitized. It is ready for use.
It is in excellent working condition.
All the pieces assemble tightly and evenly.
As to the cosmetics, I rate this one fair to good. The handle is in nice shape, with no cracks or chips. You`ll find a moderate amount of wear to the gold plating. See photos. That said, this is a nice looking early Tech with a long career of great shaves left ahead.
The Gillette Tech Razor was a popular standard from the late
1930s, through the 50s, and into the 60s and 70s. They were issued to the armed
forces during WW II, and were often distributed by the Red Cross. It is
generally considered a milder razor, yet it is extremely popular among all
sorts of present day, retro wet shavers.
This particular razor is dated between 1941 and 1946. How do
we know? Techs made before 1946 have triangular slots in
the base plates. This razor has these slots. This razor also comes with a bakelite, plastic handle. This is indicative of the war years, when this type handle and the triangular slots are matched together.
Included in this
sale is a new five blade pack of the popular Shark brand stainless steel
