Antique Gillette safety razor, Tech model made in the USA for World War II soldiers. The razor is in three pieces with a short screw and closed comb, black coated metal. The razor might never have been used! In fact, it still has its packing box and the small cardboard box under the head. However, the box of blades is missing… So I can’t guarantee that it’s absolutely NOS and unused, maybe someone used the blade pack and stored it… It is however in excellent condition, the black coating is very good for its age, see photos. It could be used for many years to come! The razor and box are a little stained, little spots here and there, but I didn’t want to clean them for fear of damaging the coating.
The razor is marked: Reg US Pat Off – S – Gillette Made in USA
The S indicates that this is a military service set. All in all, a fine example of a WWII militaria collection!
