Gillette Black Handle Super Speed Safety Razor
|Dates in Production:||1966-1988|
|Type:||DE, Twist To Open, Safety Bar|
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.  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.
