Easter surprise

Discussion in 'Double Edged Razors' started by DrBerko, Apr 12, 2010.

  1. A while ago I discussed my quest and interest in collecting old razors with my Dad. Well I caught up with him over Easter and instead of giving me an Easter egg he gave me these................which he said he picked for next to nothing.

    I am not a collecting aficionado yet so I would appreciate help with the ID's, but I think I have Gillette Red Tip, Gem and Gem travel razor, Gillette ?? and a Gillette Knack??

    Looking forward to sharing the after photos.

    Cheers.
     
  2. Yep, it's a Knack and I think an Old Type.

    Is the Red Tip Brit or USA ??

    The Brits had a "Rocket" ( gap between TTO when closed ) and a "Superspeed" ( no gap ) . If it's a Brit it's the rarer Superspeed :001_smile

    Happy Easter DrBerko.

    Good on ya Dad !!! :001_smile

  3. The open comb is an old type. Nice score fella. Go get them cleaned up and lets have another look. :001_smile
     
  4. Made in England :w00t:
     
  5. The two Gems are both 1912's. Great shavers!
     
  6. Lovely Red-Tip you will enjoy it. The GEM's rock, I have not used the old Type yet so I cannot comment on it.
