Super-Speed blue tip

Item Description

1950's Gillette Super-Speed with a blue-painted twist-to-open knob.

Latest reviews

Pros: Lightweight
Cons: TTO
I really enjoy my Blue Tip. It shaves nice by being forgiving and offers good blade feel for me. I think it is more aggressive than what people say, not that it will eat your face off, but its not something to overlook.

It is lightweight, due to the aluminum handle, which could be good or bad depending on what you like.

I think the twist to open is a weak spot. Due to there being so many things that could break or be damages. You don't have to treat it like an egg but you do have to be mindful of them.

Pros: quality construction
Cons: too mild for my taste
Well made razor, I felt I struggled trying to get a really close shave. As a head shaver it's hard to effectively mow down the back of my head and get it smooth. Even after three passes with the blue tip I still felt stubble. Quality craftsmanship make this a good buy for someone seeking a mild razor.

Pros: mild
Cons: need multiple passes
OK, everyone knows this is a mild razor. I have a beard with relative fine hair so I felt like this might be OK for me. I got it from a seller on eBay and decided I needed to try it out. I used a Voskhod blade. The shave reminded me of my multiple blade fusion razor. Highly unlikely to knick me or cut me but requiring multiple ATG passes to get a BBS shave, but no razor burn. So, after drinking a couple of IPAs that is a good thing because I don't have to be so vigilant about shaving. It puts the safety in "safety razor". Forget this if you have a wire haired beard but not so bad for guys like me. I love the Gillette butterfly. I have cut myself replacing blades in my Edwin Jagger.
