Gillette Black Handle Super Speed

Gillette Black Handle Super Speed Safety Razor

Gillette Black Handle Super Speed
Manufacturer:Gillette
Dates in Production:1966-1988
Type:DE, Twist To Open, Safety Bar
Weight:46g
Height:

Description: Black handle is resin coated metal

Notes of Interest: In 1978 the baseplate changed to a square design. In 1979 the knurling changed from a square pattern to a diamond pattern. In the same general timeframe, Gillette dropped the old Gillette Arrow logo for text-only branding using a distinctive font. [1] A variant of this razor with a smooth TTO knob (as opposed to the knurled/grooved knob seen in most of these models) also exists, from 1985. [2]
