Gillette Super Speed
The Gillette Super Speed razor was manufactured from 1942 through 1986. An interesting fact about the Super Speed is that early production of the razor was limited to the military only, from the years 1942 through 1945. Many manufacturers still copy the basic design of the Super Speed razor. The Super Speed features the twist to open mechanism, which makes for easy blade replacement.
During the production of the Super Speed, Gillette manufactured several different styles of the razor -- the 40's style, Black tip, Flare tip, Blue tip, Red tip and the Black handled Super Speed. The early designs before 1952 did not have a date code on them so it can be difficult to tell what year the razors were made. Some of the models were manufactured with aluminum plating, nickel plating and some made with steel, it depends on the year it was produced. With it's weight and design the razor was made to last and to give a great shave. A quality razor crafted for perfection, the Super Speed razor has provided many with generations of double edge shaving.
