1958 Gillette $1.95 Adjustable Razor + Free Shaving Soap
This is a vintage Gillette $1.95 Adjustable Double Edge Safety Razor also known as the "Fat Boy" among collectors; Date code D4, which indicates that it was manufactured in the fourth quarter (Oct-Dec) of 1958.
An adjustable razor is an excellent choice for both new and experienced wet shavers alike. If you are new to using an adjustable razor, start with a low number (small blade gap, less blade exposure). Increase one stop at a time until you have found the number that feels good on your face while giving you a good shave. A 5 pack nib of blades has been included to help get you started. As with any new razor purchase, you are best served by trying a variety of blades to find the brand of blade that works best for your skin and beard type when paired with your new razor.
Mechanically in very good condition. The doors open and close smoothly. No plating loss, but some minor scratches as can be expected in a 60-year-old razor.
The razor has been thoroughly cleaned and will arrive in shave ready condition.
Included with your purchase of this razor are a complimentary 5 OZ Cooper & French Shaving Soap of your choice and a starter pack of razor blades.
