One of the rarer early Gillettes is the "New Delux" with the unique flat base plate. This open comb head design is considered by many to be one of Gillettes best. Treat yourself with this jewel, well built and provider of wonderful shaves. At 79g the size and weight of these razors provide great balance and makes shaving a pleasure. This tool is made of brass plated with Rhodium. This razor is in wonderful condition, see photos. The teeth are straight. There is an old, but stable crack in the handle. If you are a collector don't let this one get away. Another shiny razor from the stellar line of Gillette razors.
