UP FOR AUCTION IS A SPLENDID LONG HANDLE VINTAGE
GILLETTE SUPER ADJUSTABLE "BLACK BEAUTY"
As I see it ,
Date Code : Z 2 Second Quarter of 1979
This is the longer handle Super Adjustable with an approximate 4 inch long handle.
( Please see photo # 11 )
The razor is a vintage used razor and is not new.
It will have some user wear.
To be sure, the razor is very clean and shiny with a nice dark handle . It appears to have been taken very good care of by its previous owner or just not used much. The
only cosmetic flaw that I saw worth mentioning are some mild cosmetic surface scratches on its shiny butterfly doors ! Not too noticeable at actual size but
should be pointed out. It is a very nice and clean razor.
Please note the dark colored adjustment number settings . The adjustment settings adjust as they should with nice precise
This "Black Beauty" still has its approximate 1/4 extra lock turn ! This is a very
nice Gillette feature that will help keep the blade nice and tight while shaving.
If you hold your razor with your little finger below the TTO knob as
I do, you will really appreciate this feature.
Please look at all of the photos and make your own call.
